5 Years, By The Numbers

by Luckbox

Five years ago today, I launched Up For Poker. At the time, I had a personal blog called Up For Anything. I was apparently boring my dozen or so readers with my tales from the table, so, like Pauly before me, I created my first niche blog. Later, there would be the short-lived Up For Sports and the even shorter-lived Up For Hollywood. Today, only Up For Poker survives. And I'm surprised it's lasted this long.

Here is a brief look at our history, by the numbers:

Number of posts: 1085
Number of comments: 6561
Number of authors (total): 8
Number of authors (current): 3
First commentor: TheRandall, a G-Vegas poker buddy
First author other than me: Otis, with Otis' Aruban Adventure
First author other than the big three: Ken Goldstein from The Illuminated Donkey
First reference of a Former Star Trek Actor: Wil Wheaton in Even Stars Need a Card
First trip report: From Otis with Otis in Vegas Pt. 1
First poker blog referenced: Table Tango on Nov. 10, 2003
First double-digit comment: jk's vegas sojourn written by jeremy from one of the original poker blogs, love and casino war
First post to top 30 comments: From Ducks to Rockets
First post that Iggy wondered whether it was real: I'm All In written by my twin brother
First post by G-Rob: On the Road....again on Nov. 30, 2004
Total blogs on the blogroll: 95

There's lots more to add on our 5 years... stay tuned!
