This day in blog history - Kiger's Notebook 5th anniversary

Here is a very obscure "This Day in History" moment.

Kiger's Notebook blogo 2x 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

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. 

Eye of the Kiger

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.


Congrats! Thanks for all the info over the years......


This is actually a blog I check several times a day. Thank you for your efforts and keep up the good work.

It's one of my favs too. Thanks!

I check it all the time. Heck I subscribe to the RSS feed! It's the best way to find out what is really happening in our town. You even offered to help me find another job when I was staring down a big layoff last year - and although I ended up not needing to take you up on it, I did appreciate the gesture. Seriously Jeff, you're doing a great job. Thanks!!


How do I get that t-shirt?
