Belated birthday

WOW! I can't believe it's been a year since I started blogging. Where has the time gone?

I almost forgot that April 4th marked the 1 year anniversary of ConnectictBLOG. What started out as a place for me to vent my anger has become...well a place for me to vent my anger. Seriously, I'd like to thank each and every one of you guys for making this blog a success. A deep thank you to the readers who have been here since day one and watched as this site grow from a one post a day site to what you see now.

When I started this crazy thing, there were just a small handful of blogs such as Ed's Daily Rant (one of my favorite blogs), Connecticut Local Politics, Almost Connecticut, CT Blue and I received maybe 25-30 hits a day (and I mean on a good day). Now, there is a new blog from Connecticut popping up every day including blogs by politicians and the traffic on this site has increased to 300-500 hits a day with the total number of visitors ranging between 45,000-48,000 (don't ask, there is a wacky formula in determining the total amount of visitors as some people don’t read my stuff by directly going to my site. Believe me, I was happy when I had 25 visitors and long as I knew I wasn't the only crazy liberal in Connecticut).

Again, thank you from the bottom of my liberal heart for all the support and encouragement. I can't wait to see what the next year has in store for this site!
