Happy 6th Blogaversary WildSnow.com

Post by WildSnow.com blogger | December 23, 2010      

Our first anniversary birthday was a big deal (at least to us, because we’d lasted a year of blogging almost every weekday), but now that we’re on our sixth we almost forgot about the moment of our inception! WildSnow as a blog was born December 21, 2004. In dog years, that’s 42, making us a middle aged blog according to any canine who’s reading this. But what is six years in blog years? I’d say that’s 12, making us just about a teenager.

At any rate, Happy (belated) Birthday Blogaversary WildSnow.com

    Lou, most of us “readers” know the dedication it takes to put this out every day. The more casual reader may not quite understand the continuous focus you have on a daily basis. You get up every morning with an idea in mind and put out the next blog/subject, without fail (sometimes setting up a guest to do the same), even before you walk, or ski, out the door…and we wait to open the page to see what is in store that day…
    here’s to doubling your readership this year!!!
    congrats on keeping the dream alive and kicking!!!!

    Hi Lou,

    Our group says thanks for the educational posts. Just read a couple of the F1 posts and appreciated them. Congrats on 6 and may you have many more. Garland

    Congrats Lou! You’ve worked really hard to make available such an invaluable resource for so many. I’d probably still be stuck doing the 24 hours of Sunlight in my heavy tele gear if I hadn’t googled dynafit a few years ago and found your site. Have a great Christmas, and hope the “shed” roof is holding up fine under all that dense snow over in Marble.

    Thanks guys, just back from multiple pow laps in the backcounty, keeping it real, out again this evening and gone for a few days over Christmas. Keep the coments coming while I’m gone!
