Thanks Giving

It is almost Thanksgiving, the holiday that last year I declared the "Best of All Holiday." I still stand by that declaration, having gone through the full gamut of holiday's over the past 365 days. This year I want to do something different than just profess my love for all things turkey, I want to use this holidays namesake as a platform to acknowledge all of those who have help STMTZ.com become what it is today.
Here is a picture from the past. 1. because I am lazy 2. because 99% of you weren't here last year, so it's new to you. 
Just over a year ago, on November 9th 2010, STMTZ.com was born, actually it was called StMetzish during those early days. It was just me writing blog entry after blog entry to myself, even my mom couldn't be bothered to stop by and read my ramblings. Due to an inflated sense of self worth I continued to write, knowing that my thoughts were exactly what the world needed to read. The viewership went up and we started gaining followers, very very slowly.

Eventually the website found itself, and began to have some sort of coherence. The structure allowed for the followers and visits to flourish. I can still remember celebrating a day with 10 hits, now we get more than that every minute, and that is where I want to start.

Thank you to everyone who comes to the site, reads and especially comments. A huge Thank you to everyone that takes the time to share a post or the site on their facebook, Twitter, Google+ or any other social platform. Without you guys I would still be talking to myself, and honestly I would have stopped writing altogether. So again Thank You and continue to stop by and hang out and invite your friends, family and hell even your arch nemesis.  









Luckily this site has been able to generate some income, however miniscule that may be, and I am not going to lie that I would love for my blog to flourish to the point I could write for ya'll 24/7. So on that note...

1 YEAR OLD!

Today is November 9th, at least for a couple more hours anyways, and you know what that means? I doubt it, but it is the one year birthday of STMTZ.com!

A year ago I started this blog with no real direction, just a compilation of my thoughts and comics, mainly just because I was bored. Originally the site wasn't STMTZ.com but StMetzish.com. That first month we had almost no views, but for some reason I kept on writing, talking to yourself seems a lot less weird when done on the internet. Somehow people started showing up, probably in search for free porn, and I continued to write.

We had the Bad Dyno comics, the super short lived GSB comics and the Hat and Glove comics, we had a series of attempts to add content. And than the article 2011 was written and was a hit, instantly our numbers grew and STMTZ.com had a direction. Since then our viewership has grown from hundred to tens of thousands and I would like to thank everyone for stopping by, reading, coming back, and sharing links.

So please keep pushing that like button at the bottom of articles, tweeting links to the posts and telling your friends. Maybe we can cross 1million views per month by next year!

THANKS! STMTZ
