I know many of you are new to the site within the past six to eight months or so. Our readership has grown pretty steadily within that time frame, so many of the faces posting and reading here these days are "newbies" - and since you're of that status, welcome!
Over the next couple of weeks or months (I have not currently scheduled a timely manner for these posts to go out), I'm going to be writing up some FanPosts outlining how everyone here can better make use of the SB Nation 2.0 platform that Rumblings currently operates on. (Not that you guys don't do a terrific job already.) But before I do that, I wanted to go a little Doc Brown on everybody today.
Anyone using Rumblings these days can explore the Archives to check out every single post I've written since I started blogging here on April 7, 2007 - the day the blog itself was born. But as crap-tastic as my writing was back then - seriously, make fun of me, it's deserved (not that it isn't now, too) - you still don't get the experience. It's just plain not SB Nation 1.0, our original blogging platform.
You guys have it made. SB Nation is the top sports blogging platform on this little planet of ours, and it's easy to become an active member/reader not just of this blog, but every other quality blog here at the Nation. The same writing quality was prevalent even while SB Nation was using its initial platform, but the cool tech features just weren't there.
I wanted to share this with everyone because not only is it amusing to read through some of that stuff - it's a pretty good laugh, or at least it was for me - but to prove to everyone just how good you have it here at Buffalo Rumblings and at SB Nation.
Without further ado... Buffalo Rumblings 1.0. Ah, nostalgia.
