Five Years Old
It's hard to believe, but "View From Above" is 5 years old today. Whew, what a ride! It's been a strange journey to say the least. In my mind, this blog has gone through a number of phases. Briefly...
Following in the footsteps of my hero -- Scott Ott -- it started out mostly as satire. I soon realized however, that satire is REALLY hard, and frankly, I'm not that good at it. It went through an advocacy phase, where I pushed causes and petitions. And following the success of my "Top Ten Looney Liberal Idiots" article, it went through the "Looney Liberal of the Week" phase.
It went through a Photoshop phase, where I played with pics a lot. It went through a 'weighty' phase, where I tried to write more intellectual pieces (but I'm not too good at that either). After writing an article called "The Fallacy of 'Climate Change'", it went through the "Global Warming News" phase. Lately, I've been into the video-making phase.
The blog has seen its ups and downs in readership. It's been fairly steady for the last year as seen in the following chart...
I want to thank all of my constant "Viewers", and especially those who leave comments. I know there are more "Viewers" than "Commenters", and that's OK. It takes a little extra time and effort to go through the process of composing a comment, and there is so much to see on the Internet... and so little time.
Special thanks to my extended ScrappleFamily, whom I regularly pester with e-mails about articles and videos. Thanks for putting up with me.
