Happy 6th birthday


It’s been 6 years since I started grow-a-brain. It was one of the very first real estate blogs ever, and is probably the oldest one still alive. Of course, most of it has nothing to do with real estate.

Until recently, I posted here every day, usually with multiple posts & with many dozens of links. Blogging quickly became addictive to me, and I just couldn’t bring myself to stop, or even to slow down. But like other obsessions, you can only replace it when another substitution comes along. As expected, I’m doing other things now. So this blog may continue to slide down, until it fades away...

Six years of archive posts can be seen here

Oh Hanan, isn't it amazing how time passes? Thank you for passing some of it with your loving readers, and passing along some great examples of how the internets isn't all porn and shopping.

You are to be congratulated for having one of most entertaining and diverse blogs ever. That’s an achievement.
It’s great you’ve got new things on the go now. All the best with them.

You were the first blogger to give a link to my ranting ant. You called “The Alphabet of Life” an instant classic. That meant a lot to me. Still does.

This is such a lovely blog, such a vast mine of knowledge. If you ever stop blogging it will be a tremendous loss for us and i, for sure, will be feeling really sad. It's been a ritual for me to read this blog everyday. Great work. I hope you never stop blogging and hope you have a lot of happiness in life, blog or not. Cheers.
