VFTP is this many!

My first post on this blog was six years ago today. I hadn't a clue what I was doing or why I was doing it.

Six years, 7,915 posts, and more than four million visitors later, I still don't. I hope to figure it out sooner or later, though, so stay tuned!

(It is, by the way, purely a coincidence that the Indy Blogmeet is today.)

Congrats Tam! With those stats you have something "figured out." :)

First of all, congratulations.
Second, I intended to show up for the blogmeet, today, especially when I read that Peter, and his wife, presumably, plan to attend, as he is a Raven, too, I understand, but.... I am driving back home, today, and you are only few hundred miles up, so I could easily make it before 3, but could only stay a few hours, and would still not get back until about midnight, with Monday being another work day, unlike next week. Sorry.

Happy Blogiversary! Yours is one of the first two blogs I ever read, so I blame you for getting me hooked! :D

Have fun at the blogmeet!

My b-day is also VFTP's? I did not know that.

Congrats; like Christina, yours was the second blog I ever visited in '06, coming here from Xavier's...and it's still about the only one I visit regularly.

Have a good blog meet-up!

Not sure, but I think I first got here via a link from Kim. Been a daily stop (sometimes more than once) every day I have internet access. You've easily crammed 12 years worth of good stuff into the 6 years you have graced us with your musing, and I hope to see another 20 years of snarky goodness.
Thank you.

Happy Blogaversary, Tam!

I very much appreciate all of the "free ice cream" and will stick with you as a reader through thick and thin. Your blog is an "always stop" for me.

You and Drudge are always the first reads of the day. Congratulations and please keep writing. I found you through Kim duToit, and through you, Bobbie, Brigid, Insty, and many others. Thanks for your efforts.

After a while, you quit wondering why you do it and start wondering how you managed before you were doing it. Trust me on this.

Congratulations Tam!

Yours was the first blog I read daily when I discovered there was such a thing as a gun blog.

It's still my first read of the day.

Happy Blogiversary! I wish that I could have been in Indy for the party.

Mr. Casey said...

Will there be t-shirts soon?? Lunch boxes, caps, pens, mouse pads? :) I am serious about the t-shirts!

Read your blog every day, have done so for years and am always informed, amused, angered and GRATFUL to you for taking time to write for we, your fans.

Thanks much! T-shirts would be very cool, maybe black with a pocket? Mmm?

Blackwing1 said...

Congratulations, as well as many thanks for the reading enjoyment.

Mark Alger said...

I must apologize for my tardiness. But I plead distraction. I've been spending the last day counting on my fingers and googling old posts. "Only six years? Wow! Where did the time GO?"

Seems I've been reading VFTP for a lot longer, relative to its total age, than I thought.

Congratulations on making it this far. Seems you do, indeed, have something figured out. Good on ya. Keep up the good snark.
