I’m again pleased to report that the Supply Chain Matters blog established another record month of readership in August of 2010, and I once again thank all of readers for their loyal following.  We also extend thanks to our sponsors for their continued recognition of quality thought leadership in this exploding medium of social media.  Please take a moment to read about our sponsors’ capabilities and thoughts related to supply chain business processes and technology.

The blog has experienced a 41 percent increase in visits, and a 53 percent increase in unique visitors in the past three months.  Nearly twenty thousand readers have added this blog to their ‘add to favorites’ category, which really pleases us.

I would also like to extend a shout out to Jason Busch, founder and editor of the Spend Matters blog for his very gracious comments regarding Supply Chain Matters. Jason was the original pioneer in this medium and provided inspiration to get this blog underway, for which I will always be grateful.  On a humorous note, despite what Jason says, I did not rip-off the “matters” naming when creating this blog.  As I often pen, I sincerely believe in the fact that supply chains do matter.

We still have a limited amount of blog sponsorships available, including the prestigious Gold level sponsor.  You can send an inquiry by clicking the ‘Sponsorship Information’ page in our Pages section, or sending an email to info at blog1 dot com.
