A Most Important and Impressive Fifth Blogiversary

No, not for Tapscott's Copy Desk but for Bill Hobbs of Tennessee who has a great story because he's one of the earlier Right bloggers. And still one of the best. Here's how he describes it:

Fifth Blogiversary

It passed yesterday without me noting it here on the blog, but yesterday is the fifth anniversary of my blog's creation. I first posted these two items on Nov. 30, 2001, at my blog's original website. The blog was created as a way to provide additional material for readers of my weekly column that I was writing for the Nashville City Paper. (You can see a full list of links to all my NCP columns here.) I moved the blog to this site on January 1, 2004. Since then, according to SiteMeter, it has been visited more than 1.46 million times. According to AwStats, my blog gets about 22,000 unique visitors per month. If half of them dropped a dollar in the tip jar once a month, I could do this full time...

And now, on to year six.
