Happy 6th Blog-O-versary to me!

Lucky #6!

For weeks Godaddy has been sending me emails that said “You have products experiencing soon. Please update your credit card information to avoid a disruption in service blah blah blah.”  I keep my wallet all the way on the other side of the room so instead of walking 6 feet to look at my credit card I just kept ignoring the emails.  Then on Saturday I got a twitter message that basically said “Hey man, what happened to your website?  Its been replaced by some godaddy page.”  So I had lost my game of chicken with Godaddy and they took the site down for a day or so.  The move got my attention and I finally updated my info and renewed VideoContestNews.com for another two years.

But the screw up did remind me that I first registered the domain for VCN on September 1st, 2009.  So happy blog-o-versery to me!  Thanks to all of you who visit this site on a regular basis.  Most of my traffic comes from people googling “video contests” or “crash the super bowl” (11K page views last month!?) but I just checked my web stats and in the last 24 hours this site has had 91 “direct hits.”  That means 91 people visited this site via a bookmark or after they typed videocontestnews.com into their browser.  That’s kind of a lot!  Even after 6 years it feels weird that I have a blog that even 9 people would want to look at on a semi-regular basis.

I’d also like to say a big thank you to the two main sponsors of VCN; Tongal and Mofilm.  If it wasn’t for their support I’m not sure we’d still be here.  So thanks for keeping the dream alive guys!
