It seems like I just passed the 9th one here.  Dang, that seems like a long time.

Thanks to co-bloggers ASM826 and Brigid for keeping the lights on here.  My blogging ethic isn't what it used to be.

And thank you, Gentle Reader, for stopping by.  Google tells me that there have been a half million page views so far this year which seems like a lot.  It's the community of readers and commenters that keeps this worthwhile.

Well then, please allow me to congratulate you for your continuing success. You have a great team and I've never regretted a day since I began reading Borepatch.

Congratulations and thanks for sticking it out.
9 years is an epoch in internet time and I'm sure more than once the urge to walk away has crossed your mind.

I started in March of 06 so I know of what I speak.

There is good stuff here and I made sure to blogroll you a long time ago so I could keep up with it.

Your efforts are not in vain, you have a pretty dedicated following of pretty intelligent people.
That says a lot right there.

Good for you.
And to think, just a tiny piece of cloth soaked in No 9.
Who'd a thunk-it?
I'm glad to have found your blog and am honored to be one of your followers.

Congadulations and thank you. This blog is one of my windows to the world and as Tam has noted, "You got the smahtz"
I appreciated ASM826 keeping the blog on life support while you took a mental health day and hung up your keyboard for awhile.
So glad you made back.
Brigid's decision to post here has eased he withdrawal from my daily fix I was getting from Home on the Range.
Thanks all for the free ice cream and I am looking forward t starting my day here for the next nine years.

You were one of the first bloggers to read me, and continue to be a friend.

Good on you!
