"Connecticut Bob" (the online presence, not me) is three years old this month! I started this blog in April, 2006.
It all started back on April 5th, when CT Joyce and I went to Naples Pizza and heard Ned Lamont speak for the very first time. That's the night I also met up with a motley collection of bloggers that included CT Blogger, Spazeboy, and Branford Boy.
A whole hell of a lot has happened since them. I became involved in video blogging, thanks largely to CT Blogger, the "Godfather of Connecticut video blogging', and Spazeboy, "the annoying lad in the red hoodie." (if I didn't bring it up, he would have!)
And I started this blog, which to date has 450,000 hits and gains another 1,000 or so every week when things are quiet, and much more if something big is happening.
Thanks go to everyone who contributed content (and money, hint hint), guest posters and commenters, fellow bloggers, Kirby, and everyone else who ever said anything nice about CT Bob. Of course, thanks are also due to the politicians and their staffs who put up with my ridiculous questions and compulsion to make silly videos, and especially Joseph I. Lieberman ("George Bush's Favorite Democrat"), without whom this blog would never have been necessary.
I also want to send a special shout-out to Jane Hamsher of FireDogLake, who's been a role model and helped bring about my political awakening, resulting in this blog.
It's nice for my wife to have someone to blame! (I'm kidding! Joyce adores Jane!)
