6 Aug: At midnight GMT (8 pm Eastern) between 6 and 7 Aug, I ended 36 months of blogging, and officially started month 37.

Whether this is your first post or #637, thanks for reading. You are helping celebrate three years of Philosophy + Special Effects here at PhilosFX!

Let's have a look at some of the performance metrics we have used to spark and track progress:









In closing, please come with me on a little trip down memory lane and review our most viewed, personal favorite, and most commented on posts:

Our most popular post, and with good reason, is the illustrated history of the Road King

My personal favorite post is the one about the burgeoning brewing scene in the DC area.

Winner of the "Most Comments" badge is this spam-magnet. Before Google fixed the problem with spam comments, everyone and his brother chose this post to share their links to weight loss, hair growth, and penis enlargement formulas.

It's been a great adventure so far. Here's to many more months of exploring, discovering, and sharing! And now that we have made it to this august milestone, I won't be tracking these statistics quite as aggressively anymore...
