Actually, the “blogaversary” was on Saturday.  Three years ago then, Posted The Piggly Wiggly and the Porkulus, and the Conservative Hideout was drug, kicking and screaming, into the world.

What do I say?  I have a ton of people to thank, like Snarky Basterd, who inspired me to start blogging in the first place.  Then, there have been all the contributors, like Don, the late Ken Minor, AG, Matthew, Marie, Jackie,  Jason, A Conservative Teacher, Jim, John, Manhattan Infidel, and RHM.

That’s just for starters:

Pam Geller:  Who took the time to link me, and actually responded to my emails when I had only been blogging for a few weeks.

Nuke Gingrich:  For the same reason.  Nuke was a early linker and commenter.

Dr. Bill, of the ARRA News Service, and Blogs for Borders:  For supporting us early on.

The Liberty Pen:  Who linked early and often.

Steamboat McGoo:  Who made me laugh my posterior off, and was a another early supporter.

Solyent Green:  For obvious reasons.  (Birthday spassfabrik is always a consideration)

The Classic Liberal:  Another early supporter, and who has helped me with more coding issues than you can shake a stick at.

Steve at Motor City Times:  Yet another early supporter, and a fellow of the Resistance.

The Amusing Bunni:  Proof that kitteh’s and politics go together.

Wyblog:  The man is a great serving of insight, with a healthy side of sarcasm.

The ‘Bot:  Tweets and Facebook links almost everything here.  He is the ultimate in artificial blogging intelligence.

Steve Dennis:  Who has commented consistently at the CH even when I haven’t been able to get to his place.

Innominatus:  For the humor and support.

Larry Jackson at Political Realities:  For being there early on, and commenting so much over the years.

The Other McCain:  Who has been an inspiration and guide, and has linked me far more than I have been worthy.

 King Shamus:  For all of the kind words, which have always served as encouragement.

Doug at the Daley Gator:  For links and great source material.

Angel:  Who always drops and encouraging comment, and has a unique style of blogging all of her own.

To be Right: For listing me on his list of the best Conservative bloggers.

Zilla: For linking, and giving me an award.

Hans, at Western Front America:  For publishing my stuff, and posting an article of mine at the Goracle’s mothership, Current TV.  There was much debating liberals on that day.  Ironically, the blog was called Conservative Hideout for a reason.  I planned on blogging anonymously.  But, I never told Hans that, so he used my name at his place.  Hence, the Hideout stopped being a hideout at all.

I know I’ve forgotten people, and I apologize for that.  However, I did want to point out some of the people that have contributed to the success that we’ve had here.  And I hope that they will continue to help make the CH 2.0 a success.

Here’s to another three!

  • Well, pal, you lasted longer than I did. Here’s to your perseverance, your aplomb, and your dedication.

    • Thanks sir! Did you let a midget into my house?

  • Happy blogging anniversary!

  • Happy Blogoversary Matt, keep up the great work! We need all the voices out there we can get. And thanks for the link.

    • Thanks for the kind words sir, and you are welcome.

  • Congrats Matty. All the methheads in Fayette-nam would send their best too if their trailers hadn’t burned up in last week’s cold spell.

    Keep up the good work…we’ll handle the other stuff. 🙂

    • Thanks! Ironically, I lived in Fayette-nam for 11 years. I’m glad I moved before my trailer burnt down! 😛

    • You’re welcome. Others helped me, so I try to pass it along.

    First of all, Happy Anniversary. Secondly, I want to thank you for taking the chance on me when I was still fairly new to the blogosphere.

    You have done yourself proud and you are an inspiration.


    • If you keep on talking like that, and you’re going to give me a big head.


  • Congratulations, Matt. It’s amazing how time flies when you are having fun. Keep up the good work.

    • Thanks Larry. It really doesn’t seem like three years, so I guess it has been fun! 😀

  • Way to go, Matt!!! You, sir, are part of the reason I didn’t give up blogging in the early days. Keep stoking the fire, my friend. There is a whole bunch of us that have your back.

    • Thanks Jim, I’m glad if I was able to help in any way. It’s good to know that so many people take the time to notice what we are all doing.
