2008 – The FDA determines that cloned pigs, cattle and goats and their offspring are safe to eat and require no labels informing consumers that that packaged hamburger is derived from cloned animals.
2011 – Woodgate’s View published it’s first post, Gabbi Giffords’ Recovery: A Metaphor for the Nation
Little is known about the historical events I have listed above so by adding my blog’s inaugural with the others, I think it’s safe to say I am likely to suffer the same fate. But it’s clear that I have had a lot on my mind after publishing 262 posts since then.
My political views haven’t attracted that many readers and of the nearly 41,000 page views since kicking this site off, my highest count day of June 6th, 2011 with 976 hits was the result of an article I did that had a picture of Anthony Weiner with his wife. We all know what was going on with former Congressman Weiner back then.
But if I were really looking for fame and fortune as a blogger I would be digging up sleaze like Andrew Breitbart and cramming every ad I could get onto my blog’s homepage. Or even more banal, something along the lines of the 5th most visited blog on-line, Perezhilton.com which is all about celebrity and those who live vicariously through them . Poor Andy, he didn’t even rate among the top 50 political blogs cited on a right-wing website.
Thanks to all of you who have faithfully followed me over this last year. Your comments and your own blogs have richly rewarded and encouraged me; giving me a community that allows me to share thoughts that can only be conveyed intelligibly in the written form. Otherwise they would remain in a state of chaos in my sensory overloaded brain.
