Reaching That 50,000 Viewer Mark!!


I consider today a milestone for me in that I reached the 50,000 viewer mark with my blog activity. When I started this blog some 2 ½ years ago I didn’t realize at the time that it would be so addictive. My sole purpose at the time was to create this blog to mainly keep a fishing log of all my trips. I thought it would be nice to look back and see when, how, and the tackle I used to land that particular species of fish. Little did I know that I would meet and share information with so many fishing buddies? I wonder sometimes why I keep blogging; well I found for me it is the enjoyment of being able to share a love of fishing with individuals who like it as much as me. All of us like to communicate with others who have the same interest as ourselves and this blog gives me that opportunity. Here is a special THANKS to all you guys who visit Fishing Through Life on a regular basis and to those who occasionally stop by.

Huge congrats, Bill on reaching a well earned milestone. Your blog is a common stop on my internet travels. Well done and keep Fishing Through Life.

You're welcome Bill. I love popping in tho I'm not using 'this' net much. Pop on over and read my fish story of the 4th. It was awesome.
Keep up the blog. You have inspired many to not only pick up the pole and wet a line, but your information is useful to ol' fisherwomen like me...just getting back into fishing after 16 yrs.

Bill,
It was a really good day, the day I discovered Fishing Through Life. I'm thinking between you, me and Mel that we've got about 300 years of fishing experience. You are my go-to guys when I'm feeling old. Thanks and let's keep it going!

Been enjoying you rblog and proud to have contributed some clicks. I am about to hit 10,000. For me just knowing that my blog is seen by different people and in different countries around the world is rewarding. Not to mention the freidships gained along the way. Keep it up Bill. :D

Thanks Daniel, it is good to know that I have fishing buddies who enjoy the sport as much as I do.

In that 300 years we shouldn't leave out Mark. As for being old, I just like to think of myself as being experienced. Your blog is one I really relate too, because of, yes one being age, I mean "expeienced", and of course some great post along the way. Thanks for all the comments and kind words.

Thanks for the visits, your blog is one of my favorites. I really enjoyed your trout post today.

Mark Kautz said...

Thank you for including me in the 300 years, Bill. I was going to yell at Howard, but you came to his rescue. I think those of us that have been blogging for some time cross this threshold and wonder "what just happened". All that is required is a big congratulations and keep it coming.

Mark

Well, I was going to say about the same thing Howard said, Bill. No sense repeating it. That is what ol' guys do, along with talking to themselves! Enjoy your blog very much and am as regular as Ol' Faithful! Congrats on 50,000!
