Happy 5th Birthday to The MAD Blog!

June 30th, 2011 | Posted in General

In the sheer craziness of what is becoming my summer, I plum forgot to post my annual “Happy Birthday” to The MAD Blog, which turned five years old on the 26th of June. So far we’ve had 1,906 posts (five of which have been these lame “Happy Birthday MAD Blog” posts, so actually only 1,901 posts), 7,658 comments, 251 Sunday Mailbags, 242 Sketches o’the Week, and a 100% score on the “total waste of time” meter.¬¨‚Ć Right now the blog averages about 1.1 million page views a year, a little over 3,000 per day.

Thanks for visiting for the last half decade!
