One Solid Year of The Hedgehog Blog!
Just thought I'd mark the anniversary, which was actually yesterday, when I was too busy to post anything.
A few thanks are in order.
Thanks to all my friends and family who visit here and still want to associate with me. I've had over 51,000 hits in the last year, and I imagine those folks have lots to do with that. Thanks to Hugh Hewitt, who spoke incessantly of blogs until I finally realized that with about 30 minutes' investment of time I could have my own blog. Before then I was limited to e-mailing everyone I knew whose e-mail address I had and whose political views were sufficiently similar to mine that I knew I would probably not offend them.
Bottom line: Without Hugh, I would not have a blog. Hugh even lets me call in to his show from time to time, which is just a heck of a lot of fun.
Hugh Hewitt: The only person
I know of who is my age . . .
and has grayer hair than I do.
Thanks to other bloggers who encourage me all the time: Michael Smith at Wagonboy's Garage, Doug TenNapel, Rick Brady at Stones Cry Out, Matthew Peek at Lone Tree on The Prairie, Bonjo and Cordeiro at Sons of The Republic, Laer at Cheat Seeking Missiles, John Schroeder at Blogotional, and my blogging techno-guru Dale Baker at Okie on the Lam. Of course, my biggest single collection of supporters is found at the Southern California Bloggers' Alliance, all of whom are located on the list in the left margin.
I note with pleasure that I knew none of these good people one year ago; now they are my blogospheric friends and allies.
Long before this blog's next anniversary I will have changed the look of my site and probably will have moved from Blogger. Stay tuned!
Thanks, everyone. Onward and upward. Here's to the blogosphere and to the "wedia!"
UPDATE: Welcome, HughHewitt.com readers! And thanks to Hugh for the link.
Who would have thought such a tiny creature could cause such a stir?
