Ten years ago today ABBA World was launched. That’s ABBA World, my website, not ABBAWORLD, the touring exhibition.
The original intention of ABBA World was to include links to every ABBA site on the internet and to include every ABBA song, including all those unheard working titles. Since then it has grown to include every ABBA book, stage and TV appearances, ABBA questions and answers,facts, original musings, archival news and magazine articles, and spread to this blog, YouTube, MySpace, Facebook and Twitter, plus sub-sites for Mamma Mia! The Movie and Benny Andersson Band.
Over those ten years we’ve seen so much happen for ABBA – the ongoing ABBA revival with each peak outdoing the last, lots of new ABBA releases including many authoritative books and excellent DVD releases, ABBA inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the growing success of the musical Mamma Mia! spreading ABBA’s music to new audiences, even new music from Benny and Agnetha.
Maintaining ABBA World is a labour of love. Millions of visitors obviously share that love. Many of those visitors have contributed to the site in many different ways, from content to suggestions or just appreciation for the site.
Thank you everyone for your support and for visiting.
