Whoa!!! I've almost hit 100,000 hits! It might happen today or tomorrow! I'm not sure what to do. Should I thank people like they do in Hollywood? Should I just sit back and do nothing? I'm not sure. This happens to other websites all of the time, but not on my little ole website. Hmmm.... what should I do?
Nothing flashy... Nothing fancy. I think I'll just give a little history about the blog.
I got the "blog" idea from Neil Orne. Neil was a morning anchor in Nashville at WKRN. He was transitioning from weatherman to news anchor while I interned there. I always thought he seemed like a cool guy... kind of funny... kind of witty... and he seemed like he might know a thing or two about the biz.
Anywho, I look at www.wkrn.com almost every day to catch the latest news in my hometown of Nashville. One day back in 2004, I noticed this thing called a "blog". I did not know what it was, but I read it. It was Neil's "blog". I immediately wanted to have a blog too! I had never heard of a blog. In fact, I often wonder if Neil was one of the first "newsies" to have a blog????
I'm not sure if Neil remembers this, but I emailed him and asked him about it. He gave me some info and I kicked it off! From then on... It's history. Speaking of history, here are some of my most memorable blogs:
The First Blog
Second Son Born (first son was Pre-Blog!)
I Got The Key To Prattville!
Raising over $1,000,000 for victims of Katrina!!!
Jeff Gerber's Last Day
Brother In-Law Leaves For Iraq
I Leave Alabama To Return To Arkansas (This one made me miss my friends)
The Tornadoes of April 2006
The Day After In Marmaduke
These old blogs really brought back some memories. Some good, some bad....some very bad. Time really flys by... What are your thoughts on some of the bLoG flashbacks? Feel free to comment below.
