Happy Birthday ONY!

I am so excited! One year ago today I posted this entry. Looking back I was so stupid to post under the name "Jesse" but whatever. No Big Deal. I look back at that entry and look in the mirror today and see someone very different. I have a new job, no longer live in New York or that apartment I could not stand on 125th Street and just overall better in life.

I have met a lot of people because of this random nook on the internet. Cooper, Billy, Brechi, Chris... the rest of the Blogger Boys in NY. You guys made my summer a lot better and I miss you guys living out here in CT. I am happy that I became fast friends with you guys and seriously don't know what I would do without your advice and encouragement.

There are a number of other bloggers that I read consistently that I have had the pleasure of chatting with about anything and everything. Justin in Chicago, Tim out in SLC, JR in LA, "Blake"/Cameron in Kansas, Micifus Phil, Debriefing the Boys Matt, Nick, Chris, a lot of you! Thank You!

There are some readers out there, who do not blog, who have been with me from the start and have caught up a long the way. Getting feedback from you guys helps me see a different side of a situation or problem. It's great.

This Week about 2800 people came to check out the blog. 11,658 people came by in May and I had over 19,000 page views. What the hell happened in May? That was by far the best month, numbers wise. Over this next year I hope to share some new experiences with you, even though I am no longer in the city, I want you to keep coming back.

Last but not least, a big thank you to Slugger who encouraged me to blog about my crazy life. Without him I would never know any of you!

Thank you to everyone! Here's to another great year!

Coming next: Best of JP
