This day in blog history - Kiger's Notebook 5th anniversary
Here is a very obscure "This Day in History" moment.
On this day in 2005, I launched an informal online column (also known by the then-newfangled name of "blog") called Kiger's Notebook on Postbulletin.com.
Remember the big head Jeff logo and when my mustache was brown? Ah, those were the days.
Since then I've posted almost 5,000 tidbits of southeastern Minnesota business news along with random things that interested or amused me.It is continually a fun and entertaining personal project that has never felt like work. Despite all of the typos, bad puns and silly jokes, readers keep coming to see what I'm doing.
The page views that topped out at 100,000 at the end of the first year have now climbed to a total of 4.1 million four years later. An average of about 2,250 people look at the site each day now.
Thank you all for the time you have spent reading and sometimes commenting on my work.
