Today is the 8th birthday of this blog.
Wow time flies, I was reading through some of my first posts and I remember what I was doing like it was yesterday. Saying that, a lot of water has gone under the bridge.
The Evil Speedo Corporation suing me for promoting speedo style swimwear was a big event for sure. That is the only major mainstream press I’ve ever had and seeing my name in the paper was pretty kewl. Speedo won the court case but had no way of implementing the ruling. The funny thing is, the boost in visitors was off the charts.
Meeting readers of this blog has definitely been a highlight – be it for naughty speedo fun or just a cup of coffee. There are also other bloggers who I consider friends that I wouldn’t have met without starting this blog.
Because of the support of readers joining my site SwimmerBoyz.com, I’ve been able to keep this free and relatively advertising free – I have never resorted to a pop-up banner and I hope I never have to. I hope I can keep this free as well.
I love the feedback I get from you guys. Occasionally I’ll post something a little more controversial and I love the different opinions that are shared.
Here are some stats:

That is about all I have to say, 8 years down, hopefully a lot more to come.
