my2fish blog’s 8th birthday

holy schnikes, 8 years? do blog years follow the ratio of dog-to-human years?

that would mean the blog is 56 years old.

that’s starting to feel like forever… no offense to my older blog readers, of course.

speaking of forever, that’s about how long it feels since I’ve been sailing.

building a new house, getting settled in it, raising four boys… stuff just keeps getting in the way of taking a day or afternoon off to find a nearby lake for a quick sail.

.

anyway, thanks again to all of you who follow along and pretend to read my posts, and extra special thanks to those of you brave enough to make a comment or two.

I’ve had fun blogging, sailing, and blogging about sailing, and hope to keep doing it for the near future!

cheers,

my2fish blog’s 6th birthday 

  
today is the 6th birthday of the my2fish blog about sunfish sailing! a lot changes over a 6-yr period. yet strangely here I am again with a 1-year old son, same as 6 years ago. but now there are three older boys. 

somehow I’m up to 4 sailboats now: my original 1960’s Super Porpoise, a 1960’s Sunfish, a 2000 Sunfish, and now a 1970’s Minifish for my 2 older boys to sail. I guess the “2” part of my2fish doesn’t exactly apply anymore, but I think I’ll just keep the name as it is. 

life is busy as always, one thing after another, but I try to get a few days of sailing in each year. this past week has been a vacation at a small lake, and we’ve been able to sail on 3 days so far. 

here’s to the new year!

hard to believe another year has already passed, but today is the 4th birthday (anniversary?) of the my2fish blog about Sunfish sailing.

4thanks again to all of you who follow along and pretend to read my posts, and thanks to those of you brave enough to make a comment or two.  I’ve had fun blogging, sailing, and blogging about sailing, and hope to keep doing it for the near future!

my2fish blog’s 3rd birthday

today marks the 3rd birthday of this blog.  I think that makes me 21 in dog years, so I can legally drink now. and there was much rejoicing.

thanks again for visiting, reading, and commenting.  it’s been a fun 3 years, and I hope to continue going forward.

cheers,

my2fish blog’s 2nd birthday

yesterday (july 17th) was the 2nd birthday for this blog.  it’s hard to believe that 2 years have gone by since I started writing here, and while some things are more or less the same, a lot has changed as well.

I recently bought a new(er) Sunfish, so technically for the moment, I could be called my3fish.  but I think over the next few months, I have to decide if it makes sense to get rid of either my older Sunfish or my Super Porpoise (which hasn’t been sailed in several years anyway)…. that would bring me back to my2fish.

the blog traffic has increased quite a bit in year 2 – after 1 year, I was at about 20,000 pageviews, and now after 2 years, I am sitting right about 60,000 pageviews – so year 2 was about twice the traffic as year 1.  I’m sure part of that was from webcrawlers like The Google and the plethora of spammers that try to link to various things with their comments (who would have ever thought an blog post about dead carp would warrant comments about cheap E.D. pills?), but still pretty exciting to see the increase in traffic.

I still don’t sail quite as frequently as I’d like, but I did get a few GREAT sailing adventures in last year, and are hoping for similar trips this year, too.

thanks for stopping by, and reading my posts, and putting up with the random non-sailing oddities.  for future planning, I’ve got quite a bit on my “to-post” list, so it’s only a matter of time.

thanks again for 2 great years,

my2fish
