B&P Turns 11

Bp 11th birthdayIt was eleven years ago yesterday that the very first post  appeared on Bits & Pieces.  It’s been a wild ride at times.  I’ve posted some interesting, weird and funny things along the way… many of which you’ve contributed.  Thank you.!

I’ve met a lot of interesting people, both online and in person.  I’ve heeded your advice on places to eat and things to see while on road trips.  I’ve shared in life’s blessings and sorrows with many of you.  I’ve shared links with fellow bloggers and we’ve discussed different things both online and in person about running a website.  Thank you! 

Sure it’s had its trials and tribulations but it’s also had its peaks too.  It’s just like life, full of highs and lows and continually moving on.  I don’t know what the future will bring, but I can tell you that it’s still fun to do so I think I’ll continue doing it for a while.  Thanks to you.

Thanks to all of you who visit –  whether you stop by every once in a while or whether you’re here several times a day.  Thanks especially to those who take time to comment.  For without you this site would not exist.   Thank you.

    I like this site! Your motto makes me happy.

    Eleven years?? I guess I was a little Intoxicated the day I stumble upon this POS site about ten years ago and started reading it. You would thank after eleven years you would improve it just a little bit. I guess that could be justified by changing the name of the site to Bits of Insanity. You know like doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

      Jonco, you and your Fan Club is a bunch of party poopers. At least someone could have pretended to have fell for these poor excuse of a April Fools’ joke.
      Happy birthday!

    Happy B&Pirthday! I guess I’ve only been here about half of your existence. I probably spent too much time here. Well, I used to, until you B&People talked me into getting on Facebook.

    Wow, 11 years!! I can’t remember how I found this place, but I’m glad I did. I know I lurked here for quite some time before I had the courage to join in the insanity, but then I figured out that ya’ll were as nuts as I am, so I joined in. I’m glad I did. I come here every day, I don’t comment every day, but I’m here. Here’s to at LEAST 11 more. Hopefully I’ll make it to a gathering one year, so I can drink a beer with ya’ll.
    Happy Birthday B&P!! And many more!

  • Happy Birthday B&P!

    I don’t remember when exactly, but I found the site through Syndicated Talk Show Host Neal Boortz posted a link to one of your posts. Looked around a little and have been hooked ever since!

    Thanks Jonco!
