4 years…

Gah… I just realized I’ve been writing this blog for 4 years this month… 742 posts and y’all are STILL willing to stop by???

Thank you to my loyal readers who put up with myย foibles, lousy writing, scattershot approach to blogging, and attempts at humor. And I missed the 200,000th visit because I was overseas and couldn’t even access the blog to see whom it was. Sorry bout that…

Seriously, I truly appreciate all those who comment, and to those that don’t thanks for stopping by anyway…

I only did this to have something to do at night, sitting in hotel rooms on the road, and I’m glad I did, as I’ve met (both over the net and it real space) a fantastic group of folks and had the pleasure of shooting and talking with many of you.

Thank you!!!

And today was Flag Day, I hope yours was flying high and proud!

  1. Having you as part of my blog roll and blog visits is my honor. Happy 4th Blogiversary!

  2. I am honored to be here! Congratulations to you on your anniversary. Looking forward to the next 4 years!

  3. Another one of the OldNFO fan club here ๐Ÿ™‚

    It’s been great reading your blog and meeting you in RL (and hopefully there’ll be another meeting soon?).

    Happy blogiversary!!!

    v.w. gunold – and no I’m not making that up ๐Ÿ™‚ (in fact that’s my blog post for today)

  4. First, NFO:

    Thank you for your service.

    Thank you for stepping up to defend our country when and if necessary.

    You did your duty.

    Your blog possesses a perspective that few others do at all.

    After four years and almost 800 posts I can only conclude:

    I hope you decide to CONTINUE as long as you can.

    Your voice needs and deserves to be HEARD in a Blogosphere of nonesuch and pablum.

    Consider this: roughly 95% of blogs are abandoned.

    You, sir, are the very rare EXCEPTION to the norm!

    God bless!


  5. Happy 4th Blogging Anniversary. Thank you for letting us glimpse at your interesting life.

  6. Being new to your blog I must say I enjoy it quite a bit. It’s been as interesting as you were in person. Thanks and keep it up.

  7. Ditto, what everybody else has said. It’s been an honor and I appreciate the feedback from you.

  8. NFO, Happy Blogiversary – it has been a pleasure reading your blog and meeting you in RL. Looking forward to many more blog entries and meeting again soon…

  9. Happy 4th!
    As others have said, this is a nice place to come, and nice folks hang out there.
    I never thought I’d meet so many cool people just by starting my blog, and follow the blogrolls on other people’s page!

  10. Glad to have you blogging…nice to have a blog for us “seasoned” folks out here….

  11. Thank you all for the kind words… No guarantees, but I do intend to keep going… now as for the quality, well, who knows ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I don’t read your blog because it’s interesting, I read it because you’re good looking and have excellent taste in shoes!

    Congratulations Jim!!!
    It’s always a pleasure dropping by.

  13. Happy (belated, sorry!) blogiversary, NFO.

    I have to say, meeting you in DC was one of the *big* highlights of my trip.

    You’re one of the good ones, Jim.

    Even if you do like revolvers that spin the wrong way… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  14. Happy belated blogiversarry – I hope you’re having at least twice as much fun writing as we are reading, because you’re a pleasure to read, to meet, and to know. ๐Ÿ™‚
