The ST blog: 5 years strong … and still growing

Posted by: ST on October 3, 2008 at 10:53 am

Hard to believe it, but today’s my 5th blogiversary, and what I said on my 4th blogiversary holds true today. I sincerely, sincerely appreciate the support of longtime readers, commenters, and emailers who send me encouragement, tips, and write to me both in email and on the blog about their views. It’s safe to say that we all learn and grow when we’re willing to listen and learn to and from each other. Over the years this blog has taken on a family-like atmosphere, since so many have gotten to know each other from regular commenting.

I’d also like to say thanks and welcome to new readers to this blog. The summer months have seen a steady increase in traffic here that has not let up, and hopefully you have liked what you’ve seen and read – not just from me but the commenters here as well – and have decided to stick around.

Whatever happens next month, whether Obama is elected in no small part with the help of the MSM or McCain pulls off a miracle, I’ll still be here, blogging daily and trying to help get the truth out there. I look forward to doing so, and also look forward to having many wonderful readers alongside me at the same time, as we travel on similar journeys.

PS: And a special shout-out goes to my favorite blogger, Ed Morrissey, who also celebrates his 5th blogiversary today.
