Today is the OF Blog's 6th Anniversary

After nearly 1500 posts and hundreds of thousands of visits and close to a million page views according to one of several stat counters I check for amusement's sake, it's that time on Sprockets vhere ve dance...

Oh, and to see how far this blog has come, see the quasi-mission statement in the first post back in 2004!

Expect a few more posts later today, but for now, just a simple announcement/celebration is needed.

Congratulations on 6 years, Larry. I present to you a ... squirrel defeating a gopher snake. Which I'm sure you've seen, but maybe not!

Yeah, I've seen it, but it never gets old! Squirrels, tree and ground alike, kick ass!

Somebody stick a funny hat on that squirrel.

I would, but I don't have the photoshopping skills for that :P

6 years, wow! I've only been bookblogging (and thus paying serious attention to other bookblogs) for about 9 months now, but yours is one that I've been reading since I first discovered it last December. Congrats on the achievement!

The Witchfinder said...

This was the very first blog I ever started paying serious attention to and through it you have introduced me to more things I love than any other, be it directly or indirectly.

Congrats, Larry, and I'll hope for at least six more the next time I raise a glass.

Congrats, Larry! Like Witchfinder, this was one of the first fantasy blogs I started following.

Niall Alexander said...

Don't stop now!

Supersized congrats, Larry. Six years. Has the internet even been around for six years? Man oh man.

Happy Bloggiversay.

You're around longer than I; I started mine in May 2005, and that feels old already with all those new blogs poppin gup. :)

Another year, another step forward in the plan to infect the world with a healthy paranoia of squirrels. Congrats on keeping up interest in the place to fuel six years of content, six years of pot-stirring, and six years of making us all look like lousy layabouts with our slower reading. I wish you all the luck for the coming year, as well. Perhaps this will be the year of Squirrelpunk.

On a side note, my first anniversary was yesterday.

Happy birthday OFBlog! Thanks to you squirrels will never seem the same to me :)

Larry said...

Squirrels make everything, even this blog, better.

Congratulations, Larry!

Congratulations!

6 years is an unbelievable long time for a blog which I can't imagine after five months with my own blog.
