Since I literally just remembered this anniversary- similar to that of the husband realizing on the day of his 30 year anniversary I am caught red handed and have nothing all too special or sentimental to say. In fact its funny because I am making my second live appearance ever tonight at an open mic night in Brooklyn. But since it is a pretty big milestone that I thought I would never reach I will give you some dry Ben Stein-esque statistics to mull over in your brains. If you would like to read the history of Frum Satire Blog part one and part two.
I looked at last years pathetic one year anniversary announcement and cringed so I am wondering what to do- I could repost my best posts ever- I could do a series, but its only one day and a short one for that matter.
For now you can see the Statistics of Frum Satire:

Frum Satire was hacked once and redirected to porn, I have my suspicions it was a Charedi news site that was mad about something I said about them- but I cannot prove it.
My favroite posts: See Best of section on sidebar
Plans for the future:
I would like to try and focus on the positive because its more of a challenge to make fun of positive things. I am looking to expand readership into a wider audience- so I can get past that stubborn 1200 readers a day mark. and maybe get noticed by the larger secular Jewish blogs.
I hope to do more live events and maybe make some more professional videos- and more improvisational videos- like on scene footage from the cholent gas station, and hidden shidduch cams.
Last but not least I would like to thank the fellow bloggers that have helped me along the way- there aren’t too many because as many of you know I am not really a blogger in the traditional sense, in that I am not big on reading other blogs unless people send me links. This short list is of people who have given me sage advice and helped me along the way.
Frum Outdoorsman (just joking- thats my personal blog)
Sarah Zeldman (started my blog for me)
Tips for other bloggers– (I think I may do an informative post on this) Don’t expect traffic and comments- if you have something interesting to say people will “eventually” find it, it took me a long time to get more then 10 hits a day.
