Happy Bloggiversary

Today, Aces Full of Links is 3 years old! We’ve escaped the terrible twos!

The first post appeared on Jan 13, 2002. That was the month the Ashcroft breast-cover-up hit the web. Heady times.

It’s been a fun 3 years. For the first two years we gained a reader every six months. I’m happy to announce that the ratings folks tell me we now gain a new reader every five and a half months!

Isn’t it time for Aces Full of Links to do what all desperate forms of entertainment do around the 3 year mark? Shouldn’t I be having a baby, adding a sidekick, going on some pointless road trip (think the Brady bunch in Hawaii)? Maybe I need to introduce a pesky and everpresent youngster (“Whatchoo talkin’ about, Aces??”).

Or, I could follow the example of other TV shows and simply turn evil. I could start saying how much I love Trent Lott and call all of you folks “Moonbats.” You’d call me a “rightard” and there would be long battles in the comments section.

That’s no fun. There are all ready a plethora of right wingnut sites. I think it’s best to stick to my strengths. Steady and reliable nonsense peppered with random acts of logic.

Congrats, James. Three years without a single change of heart. Impressive.

Three years. Excellent! I think a pointless road trip would be good. You should do a location blog trip in San Diego. :) I even know where you could pick up some resources.

Happy Birthday Aces Full of Links!

Time marches on, and so does Aces Full. Didn't I write a poem for your blog once? I tried to find it, but couldn't... just as well, you'd have had to sit through it again if I had. :-)

Has it really been 3 years? Wow.

I think we should all wish ourselves a happy blog-o-versary, because, well, where would we be without Aces Full of Links?

Moonbat? Does that mean we have to call you Moondoggie?
