Happy 1 Year Anniversary/New Year

First of all, Happy New Year to all of our long-time readers, new subscribers, and people who just happened to google the right search term to land on this page. In addition, I would like to thank everyone who has accessed this site for the many e-mails, comments, and hits that this blog has received in its one year of existence.

Today is the official one year anniversary for SportsAgentBlog.comI Want to be a Sports Agent. Exactly one year ago, the first post was made: Show Me The Money!!!…Blog. Have I at all succeeded in starting to revolutionize the way we look at the Business of Sports Agents? Have I lived up to my last New Years resolution to keep this blog up-to-date and have it garner as large of a following as possible?

In my one year of blogging, I have witnessed this site receive 21,102 unique visits and 43,078 page views. I said in my original post that “I want to be able to look back at this post next year and have a laugh,” and after all of the progress that this site has made over the past year, not only am I laughing, but I am thoroughly excited for the future of this blog.

Look for amazing new features in 2007. Keep telling others about the site, if you have anything to contribute to any discussion please leave a comment, and if you have any tips on a story or ideas about a post/column please pass them on.

I will now work on a post that highlights what I believe to be the best write-ups for each month of our first year of existence. Happy New Year, and many more to come!
