I haven’t done a roundup of 2016 because everyone else is doing it. Plus you all know what happened. And the past is the past – move on, please. Get a life and all that. Likewise I’m not going to do a post titled “My 10 best articles of 2016” for the simple reason that nobody ever reads that shit. Well, I don’t so I assume that everyone else just clicks through as well. I mean, my back articles are all there. Delve into them if it so takes you.
I do, however want to give a shout out and a note of thanks for several writers and podcasters who have helped me in the first year of this blog. Some of them I reached out to and some of them discovered me. But in no order in particular I’d like to give my sincere thanks to Aaron Clarey, Matt Forney, Tim Newman, The Cynical Libertarian Society, Davis Aurini, Robert McCain and his trusty sidekick Kevin, Soviet Man, Didact, Marcus from the Marcus Review, and XYZ magazine.
This blog started 2016 with around 400 views for the month of January. I hit almost 25,000 in December which is a nice result from my first year here.
Likewise a huge note of thanks to all my regular commenters. Apart from the interesting insights that you give I also really appreciate when you pull me up on something that I need to rethink. I learn just as much from you guys as you do from me. So once again, in no particular order, a huge thanks to Sjonnar, Allen, Floyd, Thomas, Carl-Edward, Squid Hunt, David, Tehy5, Brandon, Heresolong, and Neville.
If I missed anyone out I sincerely apologize but the blog is starting to get a lot of comments now which is very gratifying.
The good wife and I are now off to Europe for a few weeks. I have some posts lined up which will get published automatically over the next few days. I won’t be able to approve any new commenters however, so I ask for your patience and understanding if your comment doesn’t appear.
I’ll do my best to keep the posts coming while I’m overseas but it will be a bit sporadic. And the podcast is on hiatus for this time.
Whew. After all that I’ll give you a hawt chick of the week. Seems only fair for you having to sit through all my ramblings. This one is more au naturale.
