Happy Birthday To Kinky Solutions - One Year Old

By Ben Nadel on

Well, you grows up and you grows up and you grows up. I can't believe it, this weekend, Kinky Solutions will be turning one year old. My little baby, she's growing up too fast. It has been a pretty wonderful year, though; lots of good stuff learned, lots of good stuff shared. I wnat to thank everyone who has left comments on my site - they have really helped me to fix my own mistakes and clear up my misunderstandings. I hope that some of you out there feel like I have contributed something back to the ColdFusion community.

My Google Analytics shows that the popularity of my site is steadily increasing:


 
 
 

 
   
 
 
 

Not sure how long that trend line will stay true, but I hope that I can keep adding content that will keep new people coming in and existing fans coming back. As always, if there is something I can add to the site to make it better, please let me know.

Here are some informal stats:

Blog Posts: 630
Comments: 2683
Lines of Code: A LOT!

I think this year has been a total success. There is a lot of stuff that I accomplished, but even more that I did not accomplish. I hope that in the upcoming year(s), I can finally get around to things like learning MVC or trying out FuseBox.

I am happy to be part of the growing ColdFusion community and I hope that you are happy to have me.

And now, for some testimonials from my loving fans:

Congrats on the one year and the steady increase of visitors. I have learned a lot from your blog and visit it very frequently. Keep up the good work and I hope it keeps the same trend as the first year.

Great Testimonials!

Congrats on your baby's birthday!

I was going to say "why are those lines blank? I thought you were gonna put some girls there!" about where your loving fans are... but then when I accidentally clicked the wrong link to leave a comment and then the back button, they all appeared!

Keep up the good work.

@CJ,

Thanks dude, glad you like what I do.

@Sam,

Sorry about that. Last night, they switched up servers on me (we got a secondary production server a few days ago). For some reason, my DNS didn't propagate yet. I uploaded the wrong FTP site and it worked, but then I just uploaded to the new FTP (which is why the images worked on the refresh for you).

Congratulations Ben but don't think for one damn minute this means you can get lazy eh! I check this blog out every day so keep the family happy. We don't to bother "double doors" Jimmy and Tony "the Wrench" Rigazzi! Keep it going. Love the material!

@Javier,

Well hopefully I'm only getting started :)

@Thomas,

I know what you mean... my days just stream together. I have absolutely no sense of time, so it feels like much longer than a year to me.

I have and will continue to come to your site everyday to see what happening in Nadel land. Your postings are great. Your coldfusion code is very inspiring and great. Keep up the excellent work and Happy Birthday Kinky!
