It has been five years since we started Buffet o’ Blog, and we’ve went from obscure to world-renown. If you think about it, 5 years in Internet years is a long time. To celebrate, we wish we could offer everyone a free bacon-themed meal, but that’s simply not possible. See, for the Buffet o’ Blog restaurant (tentative name), we’re waiting on just one more investor… specifically, someone with about a million dollars to invest in our dream, and then it would become a reality and be perhaps [dramatic pause] the greatest restaurant of all-time! [Imagine a loud clasp of thunder right there.] So if you’re that investor with money burning in your pockets, have your people contact my people.
So since there’s no big worldwide party possible at this time, the staff met at a local BBQ place for lunch, then there were some “fireworks” afterward. It was a good time. For those who couldn’t make it, you should go eat a pizza in our honor. Or better yet, invite us along, too!
Perhaps there will be some new features added in the next week or two in honor of our anniversary. So stay tuned! In the meantime, here’s some stats summing up what we’ve done so far (for the nerdy types — you know who you are).

Those last two boggle my mind, that over 500 people are reading my ramblings every day and that this blog has been viewed over half a million times in just 5 years! Out of that many people, surely at least one or two think I’m actually funny! 🙂
And last but not least, I wanna send a big shout-out to all the regular readers and subscribers here. I’m amazed that people actually come back! 🙂 It’s only gonna get more awesome — and I don’t even need a crystal ball to see that. I’ll keep on writing because I am too legit… too legit to quit! (Yeah, that’s kinda lame — please don’t unsubscribe!) There’s some cool stuff already in the pipeline… some exclusive content you won’t find anywhere else.
Peace out… adios… buenos nachos…
