Whine Seller: Guess when I started The Whine Seller.
Mr. Whine Seller: *thinking* Well… I know it feels new but it’s been over a year, right? When?
WS: September 30th, 2008.
Mr. WS: 2008?!?
WS: I know, right? But, at the same time, to me, it feels a lot longer than that.

This was a nifty blogging year for The Whine Seller. What happened during the terrible twos?

I’ve been working hard this past year to try to consistently have a post every Monday, Wednesday and Friday (unless something timely ticks me off and I have to write about it right that second or if I just get swamped with other stuff). I’ve been working on shorter posts and more interviews and guest bloggers so you don’t get sick of me and, based on the increase in readership, traffic and ad conversions, it seems like it’s working for y’all. As always, if there is something you want from me that would improve your reading experience, please just let me know!

This post feels very self-absorbed but I’m not sure how else to write it. Let’s turn it around a little by talking a little about you, the readers.

Thank you so very much for your continued support by reading, by commenting, by retweeting the links on Twitter and sharing them on Facebook. (And Google Plus even though you know I’m a total old man about Google Plus.) Thank you also for supporting (and sometimes being) our advertisers. The fact that this blog has become as popular as it has become (and how much recognition it gets from official eBay channels such as eBay Radio & eBay Ink Blog when I’m not exactly nice to them always floors me) is truly amazing to me because, for all my talk, I mainly feel like I have no idea what I’m doing.

So, I raise a glass of whine to you today, my friends, and wish you happy selling!
