Yes it’s hard to believe it’s been just under a year. July 19th 2009, marks the one year anniversary of Circa71. Since the ticker just rolled to 10,000+ hits, now is as good a time as any to pat oneself on the back.
In this time we’ve covered so much—153 posts, not nearly as many as I would have liked but this blog will always be a work in progress I guess. 10,000+ hits—I don’t know if that’s significant but it feels like it is.
I’ve learned a little about managing a blog and for a print nerd that’s a big step. I’ve also learned that I like to write and blog about many different things. I mean where else can you get a blog about Derby cars, Halloween on Gondert, applebutter, Stephen King, pop-culture, technology, famous artists, tattoos, puppets, the Real Art move and new building, DCS events, movies, monkeys, oddities, Dayton Ohio, Mr. T and some sweet artwork.
In any case I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks to all of you loyal readers. Starting out I thought who cares if anyone reads this blog, I’m just doing it for myself. But as the hit-o-meter steadily began to climb—I felt a responsible for providing interesting stuff for all of you who take the time to visit and enjoy Circa71 reguarly. So once again thanks to you, the reader or visitor for helping to provide me with some motivation. I hope you continue to enjoy, comment and add content to this site.
