Three Years Ago Today...

...The New York Rangers Blog was born. At 8:34 p.m. on Friday, November 2, 2007, I decided that Ranger fans needed a blog that matched their passion and enthusiasm. And this is what I came up with.

A blog that finds every piece of news regarding the Rangers and puts it in one place so Blueshirt fans don't have to search high and low on the web for the latest on their beloved team.

The first year was real slow as the numbers were microscopic. But that never mattered to me. I enjoyed interacting with the few regulars I had, so I pressed on.

What I never expected was how popular this thing would eventually become. The numbers (95,000+ hits and 135,000+ page views last month) are staggering and the connections I've made with so many of you is something I truly cherish. I still can't believe the overwhelming amount of get well messages I received about my daughter.

And now a new chapter, as I will be moving the blog over to Bloguin in the very near future and amazingly making some money doing something I love.

So on this three year anniversary, I just want to thank everyone who visits the blog, leaves comments, lurks, tweets, Facebooks or e-mails me. It is all so ridiculously appreciated and you have no idea how much it means to me.

Oh yeah, one last thing: Let's Go Rangers!!!!
