4th Birthday of the World History Blog

On this day in 2003, I first fired up this blog. When I made my first post, I had no idea I would still be at this four years later. This blog has changed a great deal during that time. My posts are a lot different and usually more substantial. I have a ton more readers. The search engines like the blog. And people leave comments.

And I owe all of this to those of you who read this blog everyday or just occasionally. Thank you very much. Your comments and links are much appreciated. It is a struggle to keep posting sometimes but I will stay at it as long as it is clear that people are reading this blog and I am still having a good time doing it.

Will I do this another four years? Time will tell. This blog has changed a great deal in the last four years. I wonder what it will be like in 2011?

Happy Birthday! I enjoy this blog for the background it brings to my genealogical research. Four years!...blog years must be like dog years...it's a really long time to be blogging consistently. Congratulations!

Wow. Congrats! 4 years - that's great. I started in 2003 on May 26th. It really is rewarding to blog. I have just finished putting together my "Top 10 Blog Posts of 2007." A fun way to look back at the past year and realize how great it was.

Congrats on 4 years! Here is to another four more!

I'm a little behind in my comments the past few weeks. :-)
