Danz Family Blog: 1 Year Old

220happybday.jpgOne year ago today, I put up the first posts on the Danz Family blog. I've maintained the Danzfamily.com website since 2002 and had some form of internet presence since 1998 (primarily through a now defunct fee service). This is my 180th entry. I've received 424 comments and 32 trackbacks from approximately 28,000 visitors (blog only).

Besides an introductory post, my first post was about the passing of President Ronald Reagan and the opportunity I had to meet him. The most popular post, by far, was about Sgt. Rafael Peralta and the incredible sacrifice he made while fighting in Iraq which has so far received 31 comments and several thousand visitors.

My better half now refers to my efforts here as my "scrapbooking" after I compared it to her real world scrapbooking hobby. I've greatly enjoyed the interaction I've had with my readers and the ability to keep family and friends updated. I'm looking forward to another year...

    Congratulations on your first year! I really enjoy reading your posts. I am also jealous that you were able to meet my hero, Ronald Reagan. I share your sentiments regarding this wonderful man. I will always regret not having the oportunity to meet him. Keep up the great work!

    Don, congratulations! You've been on my "daily check" list for about 2 months now, and I've really enjoyed catching up on Tulsa events (we moved away about 2 years ago), interesting *conservative* insight into national politics, etc.
    Keep up the good work!

    Happy Blog Birthday!

  5. A friend sent me your link. I am a Danz and found your site very interesting.....I'm still looking.
    Don't know if we're related or not.
    My ancestors used to own part of the Johnson Ranch in Texas. Here are a couple of links to the Danz Cabin which is still standing.
