Happy belated birthday to The Daily Gopher

Imagine you are a father and you completely forget and ignore your child's birthday.  Well that's what I did yesterday.  Only it wasn't my child it was something requires more time and attention, and is less rewarding.  It was the blog. 

Happy second birthday to The Daily Gopher.

Started by the immortal PJS and myself just two years ago we have grown to add Buck & JG and we have a great community of Gopher fans.  Speaking for myself it is the amount of comments and the dialogue that makes this labor of love worth every minute.

Thanks to all of you for coming along for the ride. 

Some fun blog stats.  In 2 years we have come to have over 800 members, 23,400 comments and recently we crossed the 500,000 unique visitor count.  Those are modest numbers but far beyond where I thought we'd be in this short time.
