December 27th was the one year anniversary of Bucs Trade Winds. It also happened to be a day without Internet.
Another event from the 27th was the 25,000 unique visit to the site since I set up the counter.
I want to thank everyone who comes here regularly to check my little blog, it really floors me that hundreds of people a day are willing to listen to, actually read, the ramblings of little old me. One of my new years resolutions is to get to know the people who read here a little better. I am hoping to make this blog, and the whole BTW collection of sites, more interactive.
One thing I enjoy is seeing feedback from the readers. People like Eric, Bill and Buzzman77 (the secret is safe), and many others who have emailed me or left comments, I really appreciate the input. Shay, I am looking for that second post in the forum.
Thank you everyone. Here is to wishing you and yours the safest in the upcoming New Year.
Now if we could only see 82 wins. Neal, get cracking on this pronto.
BTW, I am still looking for that billionaire to gift me a few million dollars so I could do this little hobby full time. Any takers? :) Heck, I am easy, I might even make one nice post about the Nuttings if one the Nuttings were to send the gift. Hey, I'm easy, not cheap.
Once again, thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy.
I have a little contest that is coming up, I will announce the details New Years Day, let's just say it has to do with the forum, number of posts and whatever else I can come up with as criteria. I am thinking about doing a little "BTW Forum Idol" or something by having the readers vote for the winners type of thing. The winner will be announce April 1st. Trust me there is no better day for this prize.
At any rate, sign up for the forum now to get a head start on the competition.
