One year of posting to this blog, closing in on 20K hits!

Thanks to anyone right or left that stops by to read, get pissed, comment or whatever.

I'm not sure exactly how many posts I have, several hundred or so, probably close to 400 of them.
I actually started my first blog sometime in 2004 hosting on my domain, then decided to go with the Blogger server permanently for templates and hosting. Usually reliable.. :)

Strangely enough, another yearly event is coming up soon that has to do with me getting older.
And a few less hairs and a few more character lines. Men don't get wrinkles.
Email me for gift ideas, though I will gladly accept cash.

Thanks again. Peace.

Character lines indeed! Thus far I am impressed with your character, glad to know you and pleased that you (among others) have motivated me to provide my own thoughts. Together we'll grow old, cranky and cantankerous but will hopefully have saved our nation from the doom neo-cons have in store for us if left in charge. Happy Birthday, Mike!

Not till August 4th, but it's the big four zero, so it's on my mind alot..

I'm glad that you have been blogging, you do a very good job at it.

Do the blogmad thing if you wanna get more traffic, it' pretty good.
You can basically surf through other people's blogs to earn points, etc..

There's a link on the right.
Gets me points if you use it.. :)

Best wishes from half-the-world away. If you think Davao is far, we are currently hosting 13 Sonoma SU teachers. They're enjoying our fine weather and warm people. Tomorrow, they're headed for an overnight in a white-sand beach. Keep up the good blogging.

Tom Harper said...

Happy anniversary for the blog, and happy Four-Oh.

And yeah, BlogMad rocks.

Mike V. said...

thanks for all the kind words.

tell those teachers I raise a glass of Lambert Bridge wine in a toast.

Sonoma is one of my favorite places in my state to visit for sure..

I'll save your b-day wishes since you're still 39. Old fart.

Mike V. said...

Yes, I am old.

Forty is the new 30, ya know. At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

It's gonna look great on you, Mike; you're gonna love it!

40 IS the new 30! When I was living in San Diego in my late 20's to late 30's, I was probably in the best shape of my life but now that I've settled into my mid 40's and have a home, family, nice garden, dogs and more friends to spend time with... Well, I think I'm happier than ever. Embrace 40, Mike. I've found goodness with getting older! Happy Friday, everyone.
