I’ve been lucky enough over the years to get some really nice notices here and there–for some examples, see the top of the right sidebar and the bottom of the left one. (Look for the word “Puffery” in the header!)
Yesterday Chip & Company published a review that you can find here.
It’s really nice, and I greatly appreciate it! The more people that know about this site, the more it can help!
If you don’t know about Chip & Company, it’s been on this site’s list of recommended websites for years. Chip & Company publishes all kinds of brief articles touching on any Disney World topic you can imagine, and it’s got tons of readers and followers.
Thanks to Jodi, the writer of the review, and Chip, who runs the site! And check out the review!

Readers of last year’s birthday message will recall I’ve decided that the official site anniversary will be April Fool’s day–it just seems fitting!
(This birthday post would have gone up on Sunday, April 1, 2012, but I had more important news to relay yesterday.)
By coincidence, the site will have its 1.5 millionth all-time visitor tomorrow–and a million of you have stopped by a for a spell over the last 12 months.
Even after four years, you continue to come to the site to get help, to ask questions, to suggest improvements or corrections, and you continue to tell your friends about it, to post about it on message boards, to pin it on pinterest, to recommend it in your books, and to link to it from your own websites.
Some of you–not many, fewer than there are stars in the sky, but a few more than there are planets in the heavens–even donate to help keep it running.
Thanks to all of you, the site is continuing to grow and help even more people.
I’m grateful for and humbled by your readership, your help, and your kind words…thanks!!

Almost 50,000 of you are frequent visitors–up from 12,000 last year.
