The Buzzer blog turns two!

Happy birthday to the Buzzer blog!

Can you believe the blog is two years old today?

It seems like just yesterday that I was anxiously drafting a first post—but it was really October 6, 2008 that the Buzzer blog put its very first dispatch out into the cosmos.

I’m happy to report that the blog now has 940 posts, over 9,500 comments, and one fantastic community of amazing, intelligent commenters and contributors. And together, we’ve seen our way through so many regional transportation developments: the Olympics, the opening of the Canada Line (and a sneak peek tour!), new West Coast Express cars, a second I Love Transit Week, and so much more!

Check out the Buzzer blog’s first anniversary post to see a list of many more golden oldies from the blog’s vast archives.

And really, a big, big thanks to everyone who makes the Buzzer blog part of their day—you are so much appreciated!

    Happy birthday, Buzzer, and keep up the good work, Jhen!

    And a belated congratulations to you for your mention in Mass Transit Magazine—no doubt mainly for your work right here on this blog!

    Happy 2nd birthday! I think the big hand here goes to Jhenifer. Her enthusiasm for transit is a big reason why this blog continues to be successful. I’ve found that I as well have grown an interest in transit, and for that, I thank you.

    Let’s give her a big round of applause!

    Daniel, JT: No party this year, sadly! Things are unfortunately quite busy at the moment :(

    Happy Birthday! Keep up the great work you do Jhen we sure do appreciate all that you do!

    Happy Birthday, Buzzer Blog, and congratulations Jhenifer! Here’s to many more years of informative and entertaining blog entries!

    Also, I must commend you — you have built up a very nice sense of community among the blog’s followers & commenters. That is a sure sign of a quality moderator/administrator.

    If Jhenifer’s boss is reading this, I’ll just say for the record that Jhen deserves a raise. :)

    Make it a weekly poll…. I’ll vote yes.

    Hey, do you realize that The Buzzer (the paper version) is almost as old as The Vancouver Sun? The Sun started up in 1912; the Buzzer came along just 4 years later.

  • By Eugene T.S. Wong, October 8, 2010 @ 8:47 am

    I thought that it is older than 2 years, because it seems like such a big part of my internet usage.

    Keep up the good work, Jhenifer. :^)

    Sewing: That I did not know. A fine vintage, the Buzzer is.
