Post number 2000!

Post number 2000

Lest you forget, Skate and Annoy has been online since 1996, when the content was sparse and very, very stagnant. Around 2000 I started putting up a lot more static html in fits every now and then. Actually, “fits” is an appropriate word. You never knew what would set off an update, but certain events like the Trifecta or a strobe light were guaranteed to set one off. I started the blog thing back in July of 2006. For some reason I was reluctant integrate a blog into Skate and Annoy, but I think I made the right decision after all. When I integrated the blog it got much better. Finally, I got tired of trying to outpost Mark Conahan, so I just invited him over. As the updates became more frequent, the traffic started to increase. Then I started thinking about what other voices I could add to the site. I’d like to take this time to thank the regular and irregular contributors we’ve had, most notably Mark Conanhan, and House of Neil and Steve Grover. You’ll all be getting fat bonuses calculated on a percentage of your base salaries. Quick, what’s 10% of zero? The rest of you slackers need to get your typing fingers limber if you want to be uh, rewarded at the 5K mark.

This is it. Post number 2000. There are undoubtedly other skateboarding sites out there that have reached this mark, but those guys have what they call a “paid staff” and we’re operating pro bono over here. To celebrate this milestone I am taking the day off from the site on Wednesday. I may even have a little pool session lined up, and that would be… highly appropriate.

    I think this calls for a 2000 posts party. I’d suggest a 2000 post year 2000 party, but since we can only party like it’s 1999 once (which has obviously passed), how about a 2008 posts in the year 2008 party? I’m just saying… But seriously, Congrats yo!

    Congratulations SnA Dudes. Dig the wit, humor, and (sometimes) serious skate-related posts you guys dish up. Great entertainment while I’m “working”. Keep up the good work.

    2000! SnA is a really great support group for those fighting to maintain a sense of humor in the face of schmucky coworkers. It’s the next best thing to actually skating. Have a good session!
