5 Years

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

It’s been ages since I’ve posted anything, but I figured a post celebrating the fifth anniversary of One Sentence was as good a comeback post as any!

Sure, my original One Sentence post will actually turn ten next year, but this site officially launched five years ago today, when I announced it on Mefi Projects, exactly three months after registering the domain, less than a month after Twitter’s official launch, and barely a month before the birth of my daughter.

It’s been a fun five years, with over 100,000 submissions coming through (a mere 4% of which have actually been accepted for the site). I’ve got some interesting stuff lined up that hopefully I’ll be able to write about soon.

Thanks for being a One Sentence reader/contributor. Thanks for sticking around, submitting great stories, and just generally being an awesome group of people.
