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!
