Charlie, Corey, and I have been so busy of late that we completely overlooked the fifth blogaversary of 10,000 Birds. Can you believe that this blog is already five years old? Believe it. On 8/12/2003, I started 10,000 Birds as a way to combine twin interests in birding and blogging. On 8/13/2003, having appeased the birding gods, I saw my first Eastern Screech Owl! Our collective life lists have been growing ever since.
Five years is a (VERY) long time in the still burgeoning blogosphere, yet I often feel like we’re still just getting started. More than 1,000,000+ page views later, the three of us are still in this for the community, the causes, and. of course, the glory money power birds. But a milestone like this isn’t about us so much as it’s about US, all of us. As long as our readers, commenters, contributors, and friends keep coming around, we’ll keep presenting our particular spin on nature, birding, conservation, and the wide, wide world.
We have, as you’ve surely come to expect, big plans for the next year. Stay tuned, make yourself known, and don’t hesitate to contact us. While etiquette dictates wood or clocks for a fifth anniversary, your continued interest and support is all we need!
Congratulations, Mike, Charlie, and Corey. Five years is indeed a long time in the blogosphere. (And I’ll note that Charlie has been blogging for almost as long.)
Happy Birthday to youuuuuuu! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday, Happy Birthday , Happy Blogoversary to yoooooouuuuuu! Cough!
5 years! That’s something! Thanks Charlie, Mike and Corey!
To the next 5 years!
Congratulations. Five years of making the blogosphere a better place. Good on you.
Wowsers!! 5 years is definitely a long time in the Internet realm. Only the great survive that long 🙂
Congrats to the whole team! AMAZING!
Congratulations, Mike, Charlie, and Corey! That is quite a feat to accomplish. My goodness, 5 years! Where does the time go?
Cheers everyone (and, John, you have a very long memory – thanks for remembering all the way back to my old blog!)
Mary, where does the time go? All I remember right now is a lot of birding and even more time spent at this keyboard!
Congrats on a monumental achievement, and looking forward to the next five years!
