The motto around here lately is “Milestones R Us.” Today’s milestone is that this post is post #1000. Building, running and posting to this blog has been, and continues to be a major highlight for me since December 2004. I’ve met some very cool people, cool golf companies and played some golf at great courses as a result of being a golf blogger.
I’m especially glad to have met my closer blogger friends like Eat, BogeyMan, Luke Swilor, GolfChick, Jay Flemma, Grouchy, Megan Heckeroth, Mike Pederson and GolfBlogger. I’ve got probably over 100 golf blog friends listed in the HOG Master Links as well.
I’ve made contacts and friends with some awesome golf companies, some small and some big. Regardless of their size these folks understand the blogger mentality and the power of viral and grass roots marketing. Special thanks to my friends at Ogio, Taylormade, Callaway, Bridgestone, Mizuno, MacGregor, Peak Vision, Dunlop, Swing Juice, Golf Dust, Nintendo and Nickent.
