Happy 8th Birthday Flopping Aces

November 13th, 2004 was the day I started Flopping Aces on a whim with a post about Arafat's death and Bush winning the election. I had blogged prior to that about my law enforcement career but soon found that to be a bit controversial at work and seeing that I was always interested in politics and foreign affairs I decided to start this blog. I picked the name on a whim also. I was a poker fanatic at the time so I figured why the hell not. No one is going to read it anyways.

13.3 million page views later I can now say I was a bit wrong with that assumption.

In 2004 it was started on blogspot with a cheesy picture of 5 aces.

In 2005 I had a new site made which looked like this:

And by 2008 we had transitioned to this:

Until finally in January of 2011 we moved over to the latest you see now.

So 8 years later we are still around while many other blogs have left the scene. We aren't the biggest and most popular but I like to think we have some of the greatest discussions on the net, with conservatives and liberals all chiming in.

Anyways, I wish to give thanks to everyone who has helped make Flopping Aces successful.

Cheers to you and cheers too many years to come.
