Consider Yourself Thanked

This post marks a special milestone for me and my tenure here at Vikings Gab. 

This is my 1,000th post.

That’s right, after 14 months on the job, I have written 1,000 posts.  Roughly three of those are worth reading.  And roughly 14 of those are thanking the readers for continuing to stop in… for some odd reason.

So, let’s make it 15.

In all seriousness, in my time here I have seen our traffic grow to about 20 times what it was back in February of 2009 and for that I thank you.

I have much gratitude for Matt Loede for taking a chance on me, and the other writers who actually provide high quality content to balance out my spouting of ridiculous opinions, the sponsors that help us keep the site online, and my wife for allowing me the time spent on writing 1,000 posts in 14 months.

Most of all, however, it is the readers of this site that deserve the most credit.  Whether you are old friends from “way back when” on the old version of Access Vikings, new friends that continuously stop by, a “competing” blogger that links to this site and leaves comments, a reader that only likes to stop by to point out the obvious hack nature of my writing, or even just a reader that lurks without ever commenting…

Your patronage is very, very, very much appreciated.

So, as the Vikings begin preparations to face a schedule that seemingly will be quite tough, I am gearing up to follow every moment of it and pass it along to you in the best fashion that I can. 

What keeps me motivated?

It’s simple.  I know that you guys will be there to read it, comment about it, and keep me honest. 

So, as the 2010 season approaches, here is one more huge “THANKS!” to all of you for sticking with us and for giving us confidence that you’ll be here throughout the Vikings first Super Bowl winning season.
