Fat Pitch Financials Turns 3

Today, I’m celebrating the third anniversary of Fat Pitch Financials.  That’s right, Fat Pitch first started on August 12, 2004.  Back when I first started this blog, I never dreamed that people would actually read it.

I can’t believe that Fat Pitch Financials served over a half a million pages to over 200 thousand visitors this year.  That’s especially amazing since Fat Pitch Financials has only served up 633,000 page view since inception. That means most of you have only just started reading Fat Pitch Financials this past year. Be sure to subscribe to Fat Pitch Financials if you haven’t already.  Over 1,400 of you already subscribe to the Fat Pitch Financials feed and a couple of hundred get our email alerts.

If you are a recent reader of Fat Pitch Financials or even if you a long time reader, there are probably many articles that you’ve never even seen at Fat Pitch Financials.  I dug through my visitor logs and found the following stories were most read this past year:

I also want to thank everyone for helping to make Fat Pitch Financials so successful.  It has encouraged me to develop Fat Pitch Financials Contributor’s Corner and Value Investing News.  It’s really hard to believe that a little investment journal could lead to the development of an actual business.  It will be interesting to see where this goes next year.

    That is quite amazing if you really think about it – blogging has not really been around for that long. Congratulations on this milestone. I have enjoyed your blog for some time now and always learn something new.

    Congratulations George. This is quite an accomplishment as most blogs do not last more than a few months. Your content and your dedication truly make your blog stand out amongst the crowd and I am not surprised to see your blog referenced in various top 25/50/100 financial blogger lists.
