TheVOTL.com's Post No. 900: The March to 367

Ryan MaloneyContributor IIDecember 24, 2009
I don't know what you were doing on Valentine's Day 2007, but I was blogging about Don Mattingly's mustache, the perverted athletes at Plattsburgh State, and Chris Lerch's USCHO NCAA Division III men's ice hockey blog. 
That's how TheVOTL.com— then known as the WNYO Sports Blog (www.wnyosports.com)—got its humble beginning. 
And now here we are at the 900th post and counting.

The blog's original intent was to give the SUNY Oswego campus radio station an online presence for its sports department.  During my time as Sports Director, WNYO grew from a small-frequency radio station that broadcasted around 10 men's hockey games a year to the voice of Oswego High football, Oswego State basketball, baseball, women's hockey and the home for each and every Oswego State men's ice hockey game. 

As the station's sports coverage grew, so did the sports blog.  What started out as a couple of guys screwing around quickly blossomed into the go-to web blog for all things Oswego State athletics. 

It has now regressed to one guy screwing around, but I'm glad a decent number of readers are still here, despite the dropoff in posts per day.  That's actually what I'm here to address—the dropoff. 

That first year, we made 309 posts at WNYOsports.com.  That number grew to 366 in year two.  The count for the current calendar year is at 226 (including this one).  Though I had some help from other authors in the past, whereas I am now going it alone, I'd still like to top that total of 366. 

Therefore, from this moment right up until 11:59:59 PM on Dec. 31, I am going to blog about anything and everything.  If I feel like blogging about Jersey Shore, I'm going to.  If I feel like writing about girls who verbally attack me after I kindly tell them, "I don't think you're my type," I will.  If I simply want to share my favorite YouTube or Facebook videos even if they relate to absolutely nothing, it's going to happen.

In fact, I'm going to start with the greatest video ever posted on Facebook...stay tuned.
