Wow you guys. I just realized that today is Seattle Bubble’s eighth anniversary. I launched this site on August 8th, 2005 with a simple goal:
…to post news stories and generate discussion about the real estate/housing bubble and specifically how it affects the Seattle area.
To be honest, the main reason I’m starting this blog is to collect information for my own interest, and I just figured that if I’m this interested in the subject, maybe some other people in the area are too. I hope you find this to be a useful resource.
Eight years and one massive national housing bust later, here we still are.
Here are a few stats from our first eight years:
- 2,913 posts (not counting open threads)
- 145,515 comments
- 5.3 million visits
- 12.5 million pageviews
I guess it was a subject that other people were interested in after all. Hopefully a few people have gotten some value out of this site.
Here’s to many more great years to come. Thanks everybody!
