Wow. Five years and some 1,800 posts ago, I sat at my computer during a lunch hour penning the first post ever on ninebullets. Since that day we’ve made a few more posts, booked a few shows and sold a few tshirts and koozies.
As is tradition here on 9B, there will be no other posts today and I am hoping to leave work early to grab a beer or two in celebration. See, in the world of the internet, 5 years may as well be a friggin’ lifetime and, to be honest, I am feeling pretty proud of this little website today. In the past few months I’ve brought on a collection of new writers. I feel that’s the natural growth process of the site and I think that they’ll help to grow the focus of the site in the year to come.
Anyhow, happy birthday to us and thank you for coming around and check out the site. Hopefully, we’ll be able to turn you on to new tunes for another 5 years.
If you’re feeling up to it and wanna stoke our collective egos, I’d love to hear about a band that we helped turn you onto in the comments section. Otherwise, we’ll be back to regular postings tomorrow.
I raise this beer to all the bands that make doing ninebullets a worthwhile expenditure of our time.
