Blogiversary

Today, 9th of September, my weblog is one year old and the whole thing started with this post exactly a year ago and I thought it is important to appreciate all the support I've received so far and also recognize the fact that my weblog wouldn't be what it is today if people like Andrew Sullivan, Joe Katzman of Winds of Change, Mr. Michael Ledeen at NRO's corner blog, Christopher Hitchens wouldn't link to my humble blog which eventually led to more visitors and readership. There have also been days I had up to 5000 visitors thanks to the link by Little Green Footballs & Pajamas Media during this summer students' protests in Tehran. Now, my blog has some 200-250 visitors a day plus if I get lucky it goes beyond 350 visitors a day too.

However, I could not achieve this without the support of my readers who come and read my blog on a daily basis and I heavily rely on them.

Over time, my work was recognized by publisher of the Western Standard online journal and they invited me to contribute to their online weblog. Also, I have been contributing to Persian Journal opinion section. I do certainly look forward to moving my blog to a higher and more efficient level over the course of time and say more about the things I feel I should talk about.

Please stay with me and help me learn more... Thank You!

You're doing a great job, Winston! I'm especially impressed that Iran ranks third on your list of visitors, right after the United States and Canada. You're doing something right to get so many readers from these three countries on the same blog at the same time :)

Congratulations, Winston. I'm one of your regulars, in case you hadn't guessed. Keep up the good work. I just mentioned your blog at Iraq the Model. That should bring a few more over here, too.

Happy anniversary Winston. You're a trooper. I never forget how you stood up to the iraniantruth guy over at windsofchange. I thanked you then and than you now for your tremendous tenacity and conviction.
