What an Amazing Year – 1 Year of My Site

Well all, it has been a year. Yes, one year ago (okay, technically 364 days ago, but who is counting) I started this blog as a spin off of my girlfriends. Yep, more or less, I created it to make fun of her. Man, how time changes things. From a fun blog, Whalertly has evolved into a political power house, which made an impact in elections and had requests for endorsements, and into a review base. I can not tell you how happy I am that we have grown so much, and that we plan on growing more and more.

I could not have done it without you guys, the reader. You are always there, and always forcing me to update often. My older blogs failed because I didn't have readers, but I have you guys, and I thank you for it.

And to my fellow writters, you guys rock. Ander keeps me busy with alternative ideas, which do broaden the mind. Kadim, well, he is probably the most litigation specific of us. Peter, he only has a few posts, so I can not judge him yet (short of what I know from him personally). And Whalertly, what the fuck is wrong with you man?

And, I also have to give myself some knocks. Somehow, I came up with an idea that is liked by a fair bit of people, and I actually committed to it. I never commit to stuff, so you should all feel happy...

With this in mind, I would like to announce that on June 1st (assuming all authors sign up, Peter and Ander, I am looking at you) we will be moving over onto our own URL. I am currently setting up the page, and making it look good. I will let all of you know when it happen...

So, let's see how we did:
A Year in Numbers
These are all averages and all based on the average of my 5 trackers. They all have different numbers, so take this with a small margin.
