Three Years

Yesterday was "Shot In The Dark's" third birthday. I can't believe I missed it!

If you'd told me three years ago that this site would be drawing 2,000 visits a day, would be in the top 400 in the Bear Ecosystem, and would have been parlayed into a talk show, I'd have probably figured you were one of those people who yells at invisible tormentors at the bus stop and supports Howard Dean. The whole project started out as a spur-of-the-moment whim; I read about Andrew Sullivan somewhere, got the link to, and set up the original "Shot".

I never figured, honestly, that I'd ever draw more than a dozen or so readers a day . I was happy with that, actually. Beyond that, it's all gravy.

So thanks to all of you for helping me turn my little spur of the moment whim into a 90-minute-a-day addiction!

Happy "Blog-o-versary" Mitch.

(although listening to the coughing fit the other day, I had my doubts you'd make it to "3"!!)

Here's one ex-pat Minnesotan who is a regular reader & wishes you all the best on your third anniversary.
You used to be kstp, right? Back when Vogel was afternoon radio king? Do you remember a guy named Garth Brooks? He did some kstp stuff in the early 80's.

Happy anniversary!(belated) From a consistent reader: thanks for all you do and the fact that you screen Norm Coleman for us.
Here's hoping for as many more years of blogging as you would like.
