2 Years And Counting…

By JLP | October 13, 2006

Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday to you
Happy Birthday, AFM,…
Happy Birthday to you….

Here are some stats for you:

1,559 posts (1,140 here + 419 at the old blog)
4,519 comments (I deleted all the comments at the old blog)
71 categories (I have too many categories but I’m too lazy to clean them up)

There’s nothing spectacular about 1,559 posts (it works out to about 2.13 posts per day). The comments, some of which are mine, are impressive to me. Each post on this blog receives an average of about 4 comments.

Anyway, it is hard to believe that I have been blogging for TWO WHOLE YEARS!

To celebrate, I’m going to give away a $50 gift card (or gift certificate) to Amazon.com! This is the BIGGEST giveaway I have ever done. It’s my way of saying thanks for two great years. To be entered into the giveaway, all you have to do is leave ONE comment (duplicates will be deleted). I’ll randomly pick a winner and announce it on Monday. Good luck!

    [...] Congratulations to JLP at All Financial Matters on his blog’s second birthday! In two years he’s written 1,559 posts, 2.14 posts a day (including weekends!), and received 4,519 comments, 2.89 comments per post; and earned the respect of many a reader I’d imagine. JLP was one of the first bloggers I “met” online when he linked to a post of mine over a year and a half ago and we’ve been friends since. And don’t look away too quickly, he’s closing in on three hundred thousand unique visitors too. Congratulations buddy and here’s to many more years of fruitful writing. [...]

    On the path to success we all need to stop along the way to celebrate small victories. If only for a moment to focus not on the road ahead but on the road behind to see how far we’ve come. This gives us the strength to press onward.

    Thanks for all you’ve given to all of us. You are the perfect example of “what goes around comes around”. Wishing you more of the same!
