So it appears I totally forgot about the 10 year anniversary of this blog. It all started on Nov 13th, 2004 when I wrote my first post celebrating the death of the terrorist Arafat (and the election of George Bush).
Since then there has been 8,000+ posts and 266,000+ comments. It’s come a long way since the early days and most of that has to do with the readers (lurkers and commenters alike) and the authors like Wordsmith (who came on board early on in the history of Flopping Aces), Chris Galloway (RIP dear friend), Skookum, Vince, Aye, Dr. John, James Raider, Scott, Mataharley, Skye, and yes, even Mike. Once the blog became bigger we would get many submissions from guest authors that were also instrumental in helping grow Flopping Aces.
The blog itself has changed over the years…In 2004 it was started on blogspot with a cheesy picture of 5 aces.
In 2005 I had a new site made which looked like this:
And by 2008 we had transitioned to this:
Until finally in January of 2011 we moved over to the latest you see now.
Hard to believe its been a decade…here’s to many more.
