There are so many memorable posts over the past two years but the one that sort of sticks out was Mike Lindberg’s 2009 year in review.
I know that we churn out a ton of quality content but in Mike’s 2009 year in review it sort of took me aback with the number of interviews that he grabbed snippets of in that video and that was just a fraction of the ones that were actually conducted.
There are thousands of pictures and hundreds of videos- so many that I forget about a lot of them until I go through the archives.
I also love all the Fiesta coverage, Man vs Food Challenges, Flower box Competitions, Block Party Coverage, The GMG Tree Project…. god I could go on and on.
I love to write and wish I had more time to write more and love to do interviews because I love meeting new people and creating new friendships.
The blog has been such an incredible blessing in that it has allowed me to meet so many wonderful people and create new friendships.
The contributors starting with ever faithful and reliable Sharon. Mike Lindberg, Paulie Frontiero, Laurie Lufkin, Paul Morrison, Alicia Pensarosa, David Cox and Thom Falzorano,Donna Ardizzoni,Beth Swan, Frank Ciolino, Jo-Anne Silva and the new guy who has been just everywhere- Manuel Simoes.
We can’t forget the people who leave regular comments after posts and let us know that yes, we do have an audience and what people like and dislike.
I’ve always said that give me good friendships over money any day of the week and the richness in friendships that have been a result of the blog have made me a very rich man indeed.
Being able to bring our community together, make people aware of all the great stuff happening around us and highlighting the very best of our spot on earth has been so very rewarding for everyone involved.
Thanks for everyone who has been a part of this thing. I’d probably be locked up in a mental institution without you.
Thank you each and every one of you for your friendship.
Your Pal Joey
