Once Upon a Geek’s 1st Birthday!

ONCE UPON A GEEK is one year old today!

Hard to believe it’s been a whole year!  The site went live on March 31, 2008 with a simple “Welcome and Introductions” post.  Originally it was an experiment to try and understand what blogging was all about. At the time I didn’t really think I’d be able to keep up with a blog, but I sure was going to try.   Early on I realized there were very few readers over the weekend, so I decided to just focus on posting on weekdays. Hence the description that it’s a “weekdaily” blog. Also, that gives me two days off each week so I can recharge my geek batteries.

A year later and there have been 284 posts, over 1,000 comments, and over 135,000 visitors! And I’ve been foolish enough to start a second blog, the FIRESTORM FAN.

My thanks to everyone that has stopped by ONCE UPON A GEEK over the past year.  I also want to thank all my friends and the blogging community for their support and assistance.  Please take a minute to visit some of the sites below.  These folks have been true gems and deserve all the support you can give.

I’m sure I forgot some people to thank, and I sincerely apologize for that.  With so many people viewing the blog, there are obviously lots of lurkers out there.  I’d like to encourage you lurkers to post a comment or drop me an e-mail.

Thank for reading!  See y’all here same time next year!

    It’s a testament to the strength of a website when I check every single day.

    So, Happy Birthday! Keep up the great work!

    Here’s to another year!

    Well done and congratulations!

    It amazes me that so many blogs that I admire because they seem so knowledgeable and professional, are so young. You obviously hit the ground running and haven’t looked back – here’s to the future :)

    Happy Birthday, Once Upon a Geek. One day you will be a man.
    I hope you don’t get Frank Miller to write Year One. His writing has become pretty crappy in recent years (see All Star Batman and Robin the Boy Wonder)

    Happy Birthday! Thanks for the “shout out!” Only one year old? Great Neptune’s Beard! I assumed you had been doing it for much longer than that. Good stuff! This site has definitely been a welcome addition to my list of sites to visit on a daily basis.

    Year Two? Year Two? That’s it! Year Two was the totally unimpressive Batman story I had that I sold off some 18 years before realizing Todd McFarlane did art on it.

    Hope your Year Two is better than Batman’s!

    Year One rocked. Yours and Batman’s.

    What’s with the cake? Did you buy it for yourself? Did Mrs. Irredeemable get it for you? Superb! You and Batman.

    Yeah, sorry, ‘Reaper’… You might have a skull and a red suit, but that is not the same as a red skull. Not the same!

    Happy 1st! And you’ve kicked off Year 2 with Vibe…how can you beat that?
