Getting Outside Saturday: Happy Anniversary to Bill and Dave’s

categories: Cocktail Hour / Getting Outside


Bill and Dave in the early days.

Tomorrow, April 6, marks four years since our first post on Bill and Dave’s.  Four years!  I can hardly believe it.  Not that time passes so fast–in fact, it seems to crawl.  But that we’ve kept it up this long.  Post after post, image after image!  And all with no commercial intent, no advertising.  Except for ourselves, of course.  I put today’s post under the Getting Outside category because Bill and Dave’s was and remains a conscious effort to get outside the confines of the book, the page, the mores of traditional publishing, the dreams we’d had of what our writing lives would be like, and to find our way in the new reality, which is at least in part digital.  Well, we’re still lost, but it’s been a lot of work.  I mean fun.  We’ve attracted thousands of hits a week, sometimes thousands a day, and millions in four years.  Those first weeks we were excited to get fifty, then a hundred.

Anyway, here’s a toast, and more to come!  Happy Anniversary to Bill and Dave’s!

    Wow, tons of important material to cover on this post. I’ll have to come back to it a few times before it’s all said and done. I’m so glad you brought it back, since I missed it the first time around.

    Congrats on this B and D, post after post, image after image for four years! Impressive.
