Today, this blog turns five SIX years old. That is quite old for a blog, but I have to admit that I don’t get near the traffic of the popular kids like Tam, Uncle, Law Dog, or AD. Each of those blogs inspired me to start my own. My first blog post as of this writing still has only 4 page views, and Tam is one of them. I made a few mistakes along the way, angered some, made others laugh. I’ve seen some blogs end: Kim, Kit, Breda, and others. I have found new blogs: Borepatch, Graybeard, and others.

I am not a terribly prolific blogger. I’ve only posted about a thousand times in that five SIX year period, not even averaging a post a day.

To this day, I still only get about 30-40 eyeballs a day, and although I had hoped when starting that I would get thousands, I blog now because I like to get my thoughts out of my head, and not because I care if people read them. That is why I blog: for me.

Anyhow: Happy Blogiversary to me.

Correction: This blog is six years old. I first posted in 2007.

Congrats on 5 years. Takes a lot to keep writing that long and you do it well.

Congrats! Five is something like 47 in blog years. It's even worse than dog years.

It's a tough thing to try to put something worthwhile every day. My hat's off to Tam and Borepatch and those folks that manage it.
