We love the idea of being very open towards our readers and today we have very exciting news to share with you.

It has been 6 months already since RunAddicts.net was launched. So far, It has been an amazing journey that we are enjoying immensely thanks to your constructive feedback and supportive comments.

During these few months, we learned a lot about professional blogging, running (ofcourse!) and gained some fantastic friends, followers & readers along the way.
Since RunAddicts was born, we have been visited by over 70,000 people and even though this number is not even a fraction of what we dream of, we are confident that it will grow in leaps and bounds in no time.

How are we so sure? Well, your warm messages, emails, feedbacks, and comments are constantly assuring us that we are on the right track and pushing us to meet or even exceed your expectations.

Tailoring RunAddicts to fit your needs

Over the last months, we’ve been checking out how you – the reader – are using our website. We discovered that you are interested in features we didn’t even think of, and didn’t give much attention to other features that we first thought of as important! For example, the poll and recent comments aren’t used a lot, while the links to features posts are being clicked in masses.

We’ve decided to recreate the homepage to better suit your needs. The new website – which will be launched in a few weeks – will display the most recent post, and 3 featured posts for each category.

New Server and Search function

There were some complaints of the website being down frequently. Mainly, this is because our website is getting pretty big, filled with a lot of articles.
When we switch to the new website, we will also switch over to a new server, which will be a lot faster and more stable.

Since we are growing bigger and we have a lot of published articles, we needed to recreate our search function to give you a better overview of our blog posts and enable you to find all the information you need more quickly.

Help us STANDOUT!

Yes, we strive to STANDOUT and become the number one running blog worldwide and we definitely can’t reach that far without your help. In fact, we are turning RunAddicts design upside down in response to your needs.

So, if you have any helpful advises on how to further improve RunAddicts, please share it with us soon so we can include them in the new design.

Stay tuned! Become the next addict!

The countdown has begun! Just a few weeks and you will enjoy the new RunAddicts! So, keep visiting us frequently to find out. Even better, we invite you to subscribe to our newsletter to get the insider’s scoop of all the exciting details.

Enjoy!
