On June 20, 2008 at 11:55 a.m. Pacific time (which suggests that I was taking advantage of my employer’s flexible lunch hour), a blog post was posted that would impact all of the posts posted from that moment on until the end of the history of blog posting. Of course, at the time, we had no idea where this crazy ride would take us…actually, that’s not true. We always suspected that panablog would become one of the most trusted media sources for all things Jay and Julia and Panama. And just look at where we are today: on top of the Jay and Julia and Panama media empire.
It´s been an amazing year.
Yes, we know there’s been a little bit of a financial downturn and people have lost hundreds of thousands of dollars in life savings…but when you balance out the equation with the intense, lasting joy that panablog has brought to people, it’s actually been the best year in recorded history. Just take a look at the graph:
Graphs don´t lie. To celebrate, we´ve decided to give you guys a couple li´l presents. First, we´ve updated the banner image to make it even more breathtakingly stunning. The levels on our faces and the Panamanian flag have been adjusted, and we´ve put Teddy Roosevelt´s handsome visage back in the mix.
What´s more, you can now follow us on Twitter -- just click here: www.twitter.com/panablog. You´re welcome, everyone! And watch out Ashton and CNN!
Anyway, our challenge today is to try to figure out a way to wrestle the giant unwieldy balloon of joy and goodness that is all of a panablog into a short summary post commemorating everything we’ve accomplished. I know what you’re thinking: “It’d probably be easier to secure lasting peace in the Middle East!!!” Agreed. But obligation compels us.
(Several hours later)...Okay, we´ve tried really hard and we can´t do it. There´s just too much greatness to work with. Luckily, we have those stalkerazzi over at Fanablog: A panablog fan blog to help. Check it out.
