Few days late, but better late than never.
It all started on Nov 13th, 2004 when I wrote my first post celebrating the death of the terrorist Arafat.
Since then there have been 16,480 posts and 422,928 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), DrJohn, Brother Bob, Larry Brandes, Chris Galloway (RIP dear friend), Skookum, Vince, Aye, James Raider, Scott, Mataharley, Skye, & Mike. Many of them are retired from writing, but the blog wouldn’t have been the same if not for their work.
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 that looked like this:
And by 2008 we had transitioned to this:
In 2011, we moved over to this version:
2015 looked like this:
And finally, in 2021 we moved on to what you see before you.
18 years….geez. I must be insane.
Anyways, thanks for visiting and commenting from time to time.
