Five years old

June 20th, 2007

It’s the winter solstice and this blog is five years old today. Not the oldest in the blogosphere by any means, but older than most.

    Given the growth rate, the blog may become a take-over target – imagine the advertising revenue that could be generated for private equity.

    Thats a lot of opinions in circulation. Happy birthday to the Quiggin blog. One of the best from the left.

    How much does that translate to in human years?

    Given that most blogs seem to die within a few months I suspect that it translates to about 1500 human years.

    What Terje said, though from anywhere.

    How can I put off starting a blog without impacting the doubling period?

    Congratulations John. Five years is a long time in blogging.

    John, yours was one of the blogs I inadvertently ended up on when I first discovered blogging. I was amazed – what a useful compendium of thoughts. So congratulations on a great achievement.

    More intelligent than Richard Alston, not as truth challenged as honest John Howard, all in all much better than those plaudits might have you think and undeludedly one of the world’s few indispensible blogs.
