Blog Fifth Anniversary

Yeah, this is David's Musings Fifth Anniversary.  That makes this blog a Jurassic blog in comparison to many, if not most blogs, these days.  I won't go over the stuff I have said in other anniversary blog posts.  I said last year I might not be here for the fifth anniversary.  I said that on the third anniversary also.  Why do I continue?  I have no idea.  It's just something that I have grown into over the past five years.  It doesn't seem possible that it has been five years.  The only thing different from this anniversary is that, at long last, I have my own domain URL.  No more davidsmusingtsthoughts.blogspot.com.  That was the norm  for 4.5 years.  Now, it is davidsmusings.com.  As you can tell, I lost page rank as a result.  Alexa is slowing coming back.  Of course, I don't get the comments I did at one time.  None of that matters to me any longer.  I had to do things to discourage spammers.  I hold comments in moderation and word verification is on for posts.  Apparently, a lot of people don't like to do that.  If I don't do the above, this blog would be nothing more than spam comments.  I know that for a fact.  I took off moderation and word verification for two hours last year.  I got over 50 spam comments in that short two hour period.  That proved to me I was doing the right thing.

I tried staying away from this blog back in 2011.  I stayed away for six months.  I found myself missing this blog.  So, I came back and opened things back up in February 2011.  I miss all the good friends I made over the years.  People move on, do other things.  That's life.  But, David's Musings marches onward and upward to a possible sixth anniversary date in 2014.  We'll see about that.  So, Happy Anniversary to David's Musings!
