Two years and counting….

I’m great with anniversaries, aren’t I? I just noticed on the side of my blog that I started blogging in February of 2008. I decided to look a bit closer and noticed I started February 4, and after looking at the calendar I realized that was exactly two years ago.

Without turning this into a big post I just wanted to say thanks to all of you. While the blog probably hasn’t been the most financially profitable use of my time, it has been more than profitable in every other way. There’s nothing I enjoy more than interacting with all of you, and I hope to meet more of you in person in the coming years, in the skies, at an airport, or otherwise. Besides, I would have never in a million years dreamed of having half this many readers — why you guys put up with my rants about hot nuts, airline food, bad media reporting, and bad service is beyond me. 😉

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  1. Lucky-

    I met you on my London UA mileage run a little over three years ago… and remember you as an extremely kind, generous person. Congrats on your two year milestone here! I look forward to reading more for years to come.

  2. Thanks for sharing your world with us, Lucky! And it is “profitable” in that you get comped the occasional premium flights across the pond. 🙂

    Best of luck wherever your travels take you!

  3. Lucky,

    Has it already been two years? Wow! You’ve imparted a wealth of information through your blog to many people, myself included. I enjoy reading it and being educated in all areas of accumulation of miles and points, whether or not I participate in that particular program. I have learned a lot. Keep up the great work. I second Matthew’s comment that you perform a vital public service.

  4. Happy Two Years Lucky! I now understand how hard it is keeping up a blog – and still keeping it relevant.

    Keep up the great work and hope to catch you sometime again!

  5. Congrats! I’ll speak on behalf of your readers by saying that we all appreciate your hard work 🙂 Thanks!

  6. Great job Lucky. As I told you some time ago, you have become a staple in my conference presentations. The audience is always impressed (and some are a bit confused if not scared) by your travel exploits. Safe travels.

  7. Keep up the great work Ben – between your blog, Gary’s (View from the Wing) & Rick’s (Frugal Travel Guy), I feel I’m generally on top of generally what’s going on. Thank you!

  8. Congratulations! Thank you for sharing all your stories. I read your blog every single day and love it.
