It was seven years ago today that The Most Important English-Language Blog in Central Mexico (Excluding the Distro Federal and Parts of Guadalajara) was born. That makes this the second-longest and 27th-most-lucrative job we've ever held.
From its humble beginnings in Room 158 of the La Quinta Motel in Meridian, MS, it's grown into the multinational conglomerate you hold in your hands at this moment. At this point it's customary to pin the success of such an enterprise on its dedicated community of readers but, when you really think about it, you guys don't do all that much, do you?
Actually, we're aware we haven't done all that much, either, as of late, for which we'd like to apologize (and to apologize further for presuming that our reduced output is in any way a concern to anybody). Between time-consuming full-time work for The Man, a torn rotator cuff that sidelined us for a while, and the fact that one can say literally everything there is to say about life in this town with far greater concision than 3,156 posts over 2,557 days, posting has become pretty sporadic, and likely to become more so in the future. It's nothing personal, we swear. Though we brag all the time about our enormous staff and extremely competitive internship program, it's really just one guy farting this stuff out in his free time. Look for us to be filling space with some of the 10,000 photographs we've taken over the last several years, which have been gathering dust inside the massive Burro Hall servers buried deep beneath the statue of Conín at the entrance to the city.
But seriously, we do treasure our readers and most especially (now that we've instituted a strict regime of filtering and moderation) our commenters. Thanks for wading through all this nonsense with us. ¡Salud!
