One Whole Year – Wow, a whole year of doing this.  256 posts & Daybreak Doppler Dames, 3580 (give or take) links shared, God knows how many hours visiting sites looking for those links and photos, one name change & at least two format changes.  As my Grandma McWeeny would say, “Uff-da!”.  When the Daybreak Doppler started on March 1 st of 2010, was pretty low on the totem pole as it related to traffic and reach in the Wisconsin Sports blog-o-sphere.   At the time it was pretty much just myself, Big Snake Man and Chris posting with any regularity and that really wasn’t all too regular. I thought picking up the reins of the Dan Walsh’s Morning Coffee would just be something fun to try, little did I know it would be launching pad of sorts.   Flash forward a year and a lot of things have changed: 

  • We have a truly great group of contributing authors of various frequency in posting & interests
  • A site which has the most female contributors of any Wisconsin Sports site out there
  • Weekly features including the Thursday Q & A, a Simple Kind of Fan, A Violent Femmes View & Chicks Dig Scars
  • One of, if not THE , best Packer game recaps in Rich’s Game Running Dairy + Twitter Reaction posts
  • Some actual name recognition & people knowing is not a weather website

For me personally, it’s been an opportunity to meet and interact with some great people and that right there has made the work doing this well worth it.  So thanks for stopping by every day, we’ll see you tomorrow.
