On 24 January 2010 I registered the URL www.NatesEbookNews.com and launched a blog. In the 2 years since I've broken dozens of stories, ferreted out a large number of secrets, and became the site that TechCrunch called "pretty much the best source online for ebook news". It's been lot of fun, and the coming year will be more of the same.
I know that it's common for blogs to celebrate anniversaries by giving away gadgets, but the end of January is too close to Christmas and CES. I'm not sure anyone would be interested. But I will be giving away all the swag I picked up at CES 2012, including:
- solar powered flashlight
- press bag (backpack)
- USB backup battery
- iPhone case
BTW, I'm merely delaying the gadget giveaway, not skipping it. I am saving the really big celebration for mid-March. I have the good fortune to have 2 anniversaries due to the fact that I changed the name of the blog in mid-March 2010 to The Digital Reader. And since I get to choose, I'm going with the later date as the official anniversary.
Stay tuned. With luck I should be able to give away at least a couple toys you won't find elsewhere.
