Ten Years of Blogging

Today is a particularly special day in the blogosphere, as two sites that supply great links to their readers are marking ten year anniversaries. Gerard Vlemming's site, the Presurfer first began publishing on September 24, 2000. On the same day, Everlasting Blort was founded. Both sites still update, bringing you the newest, strangest, and quite interesting links from all over the web.
The Presurfer International Headquarters is closed for today. I'm having a party right now! It's not a big party because there's just me. But I'm wearing a funny little hat and there are meatballs. Because today marks the 10th anniversary of The Presurfer.

The Presurfer began 10 years ago and has evolved from a personal link page to what it is today. Is that really something to celebrate? Yes, I think it is. According to The Internet Archive the lifespan of the average web site is 44 to 75 days. The Presurfer has been here for 3,650 days.

Happy "blogiversary" to both sites from your friends at Neatorama! Link

> The Presurfer has been here for 3,650 days.

Not to pick a nit, but as 2004 and 2008 were leap years, it would be more accurate to say that The Presurfer has been here for 3,652 days.
