The Blogiversary

Yesterday was the one-year blogiversary for Captain's Quarters, a milestone which I intended to mark last night after attending a Patriot Forum here in town with Hugh Hewitt, Jason Lewis, and the entire Northern Alliance gang. Instead, I did what I usually do -- blog on a breaking news item, and then fell asleep before I could do anything else.

In the one year since I started CQ, I have made more friends and enjoyed more new experiences than I ever imagined this would create. Friends like Hugh, Scott and John from Power Line, the entire gang at Fraters Libertas, King from SCSU Scholars, Mitch Berg, David and Margaret from the Taxpayers League, and many others I don't have time this morning to name have helped push CQ to unplanned success. Some of the highlights from the past year:

* Adding my partner, Whiskey
* Joining the NARN
* 29 weeks of the Captain's Caption Contest
* Attending the Republican National Convention
* Publishing my first paid articles in the New York Post and NY Sun
* Receiving over two million unique visits
* Every single Instapundit link I ever got

And many, many more highlights which, again, time does not permit me to get into this morning. In celebration, I'd ask that you drop me a comment or two about your favorite CQ moments, which I'll use later this week to write a more extensive post. I'd also ask you to visit three of the first blogs to link to me last year: Twilight Cafe, QandO, and the Politburo Diktat. Their early encouragement kept me going, and it was and is much appreciated.

Most of all, thank all of you who visit CQ regularly and who comment, agree, disagree, and keep coming back. This one's for you.
