Just Realized Today is the Blogoversary

We’ve made it to eight years, starting today. It’s hard to believe it’s been that long. Blogs are measured in dog years, so eight is a long time to be doing this. I won’t deny this has been a rough year, but the roughness is probably because there hasn’t honestly been much interesting news. I think the big story for this year was the passage of I-594, because it’s presented Bloomberg with a functional strategy that favors his status as a billionaire with deep pockets. We’ll be talking about that for some time, I think.

But I appreciate the people who keep coming around. Unlike when I started, where blogging was more of a community, it’s very difficult these days keep up with professional bloggers, who are writing in a vastly different environment from the one in 2007. Indeed, blogging today barely resembles the blogging of yesterday. I’m not sure yet whether that is a good or a bad thing. We shall see.

  1. The time and effort you and Bitter put into this is greatly appreciated. I don’t have much free time to read blogs, but this is a daily stop for me because I know I can get the most important news about our rights and commonsense commentary from you guys. I wish you both a blessed year!

  2. I for 1 am very glad you have continued. This is the primary blog I visit.

    Thank you very much.

  3. This is one of my favorite gun blogs, and I’m glad you continue to do it. This blog is levelheaded and not angry all the time, and I like that a lot.

  4. This is the first place I go most days, hope you stay around for many more years!

  5. Seconded. This is a great place to get information and sober analysis. Your and Bitter’s efforts are much apreciated.

  6. Yours is the only blog I read consistently. You have not only two insightful writers with a good range of topics, but a variety of well thought out and educated commenters from across the country. Thank you for putting in so much time and effort, I do appreciate it!

  7. Happy anniversary.

    Professional bloggers?

    I don’t think I know of any.

    You guys are some of the best. An everyday visit, if I can.

  8. An entirely selfish and personal note, thanks for letting me indulge my occasional urge to blog someplace where I can get read by a larger audience. I no longer have the time or energy to post enough to do it on my own site.

  9. Congrats on your blogoversary. I don’t always agree with you but your arguments are always well reasoned.

    I do appreciate the chance you gave me as a beginning blogger to sit in as a guest while you were out of town.

    I hope to see you and Bitter in Nashville at the NRA Annual Meeting.

  10. Although I initially came to this blog due to its PA-focus, I came to appreciate the commentary on national issues as well.

    For me, the biggest draw for this blog is its perfect balance between the legal analysis of issues and the passionate pro-gun commentary. 2A blogs these days seem to focus on one or the other too much. While not a lawyer, I also am not looking for click-bait articles with no rationale to back them up.

    Keep up the great work!

  11. The phrase you are looking for is commercial bloggers.

    You and Christie are the epitome of professional bloggers in that you practice professionalism in your craft.

    The same cannot be said for many of our johnny-come-lately commercial blogger entrants.

  12. I’m actually disappointed I didn’t discover this blog til about 3 years ago. Its the first site I check every morning.

  13. You’ve been on my daily read list for years. I visit here because you have an insight into our opponents that others miss.

  14. Congratulations. Most blogs don’t last half as long. Keep up the good work.
