Patterico's Pontifications

Blogiversary

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:48 pm



I started this blog 17 years ago today.

It still exists, largely due to the efforts of JVW and Dana. Other great folks have contributed to it in the past, including DRJ, Karl, JD, and others.

Thanks to them, and to you for reading.

  4. I find this flipping amazing. You’ve built something important here, I think. Certainly a great stream-of-consciousness trace of right-of-center political thought since 9/11, especially in the comments.

    Just think, 50 years from now, some political history student reading this and thinking “BY GOD! Were they all that crazy then?!”

  5. Thank you for hanging in there.

    You have given me hope that, in spite of the impending collapse of the republic (and the rest of western civilization with it), there are still some sound minds out there clinging to their integrity and honor.

    May your integrity (and sanity) last another 17.

  7. Congratulations, senor, and feliz cumpleaños.

    I appreciate your constitutional conservatism, as one to another, during these winter years.

  8. You are a great blogger and an even better person, Patterico. Always have been and always will.

  9. I meant to ban the guy who made the reference to Vindman as a “Ukranian Jew” and was just reminded to do so. Buh Bye BorisB.

  10. Don’t short-change yourself, P.

    You’ve kept it open, engaging– and in the spirit of Trump Times: entertaining.

  11. Patrick,

    Over the years, you have consistently challenged readers, and caused them to think through an issue, reconsider their views…or stomp their feet in frustration at your harangues that just make sense. Congratulations on another year.

    P.S. What a gift to contribute posts to your site. I marvel a being so privileged.

  12. The other commenters said it better than I can, but: thanks for starting the blog and then hanging in there. As long as you keep blogging, there are lots of people who will keep reading appreciatively, me included, even if sometimes I’m one of Dana’s (#11) foot-stompers. Keep blogging, please!

  17. Congrats on your 17th. That’s endurance.

    This site sure has evolved.

  18. Thank you, Patterico (and co-bloggers) for creating such a space. It is interesting to me that I have never met anyone here in person, and only spoken once on the telephone to Patterico. Yet I feel like we are all comrades, in a non Bernie way.

    Congratulations and best wishes.

  19. Congratulations and thanks!

  23. I really enjoy this Blog and greatly appreciate the time and energy Patterico, JVW, Dana, DRJ, Karl, JD, and others put and have put into it.

  24. As is wont from me on Zuckerberg’s spawn,

    Happy Belated, Patterico.

  25. Congratulations and thanks, Patterico – and thank you to DRJ, JVW, Dana, and all the others who have kept the faith and helped shoulder the burden over the years. It’s a troubling time, where I try to hold my tongue, but I still check in daily.

  26. Truly a cause for celebration.

  28. I needed a new “Left Coast” blog after Cathy Seipp died in 2007. Thank you for being that site.
