Happy Birthday to Unplug Your Kids!

!!! Happy Birthday !!!

Three years ago today (February 5th, 2007) Unplug Your Kids was “born.”

Unplug Your Kids was originally supposed to be a shopping blog.  My very first blog post ever was about the Skwish toy that all my babies have dearly loved.

Soon I also got into book reviews.  Then I started talking about family life without TV.  Next came crafts and other TV-free activities.   Now I feel myself slipping into a new phase, although I am not exactly sure what that will be yet.

Like life itself, Unplug Your Kids has changed, hopefully for the better.  I have changed also, again, hopefully for the better.

  • In three years I have written 632 posts and received 4,136 comments.
  • I have deleted 31,337 spam comments. (Thank you Akismet, I love you!)
  • My teeny little counter at the bottom of my home page currently registers 331,690 visitors.
  • My most popular day was Tuesday, October 21, 2008 with 4,166 visitors (crashed the server!).
  • The most readers ever on line simultaneously were 248 on October 20, 2008 (nope, my web host was NOT happy with me in October 2008).
  • My most popular post: Easy Homemade Musical Instruments with 24,246 views.
  • My most commented post (that was not a giveaway or a TV Turnoff Challenge):  Blog Fears with 41 lovely, supportive comments!
  • For anyone who knows or cares about such things, Unplug Your Kids is a currently a Google page rank 4.

Astonishing!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who reads Unplug Your Kids and please join me for some virtual cake and ice cream!

    Congratulations. I was right there with you. I started http://www.play-activities.com in January 2007. I’ve loved what you’ve been doing. Different and with a purpose. Thanks. Hope to see you around for many more years.
