Studies show that 60-80% of blogs do not survive for more than one month after they started. Another study found that two-thirds of existing blogs had essentially died. So it is with some pride that we celebrate the one-year birthday of Chimesfreedom. Thanks to my friend Harry for the package of Chimes chews as pictured above. We hope that similarly you have found Chimesfreedom to be “stimulating and all natural.”
When Chimesfreedom started, I did not know it would continue this long and do not know where we will end up. It is not easy to keep a website updating regularly when one has a full-time job, so I understand why most blogs do not last for more than a month. Yet, maybe we will make it to 2525, as described by Zager and Evans in their famous song.
Come to think of it, though, it does not sound like there will be much pop culture on which to comment in 2525. Regarding the video, yes, that Zager Guitars ad over the video is from Denny Zager of Zager and Evans. He now has a custom guitar shop. The other half of the Nebraska group was Rick Evans, who wrote the song, “In the Year 2525,” which was released in 1969 and became a huge hit. But the duo never had another one. Is there a more depressing song out there? And then there is Futurama’s version, “In the Year 252525.”
But for now, let us enjoy the rest of 2011 and wish you a happy and healthy 2012. If you are new to Chimesfreedom, check out some of the stories posted under “Featured Blog Posts” in the right-hand column. And visit again to see what the future holds. As always, your comments are appreciated.
