    iPinion turns half a decade old

    Dear readers,

    This month iPinionSyndicate celebrates its fifth anniversary.

    Over the past few years we’ve been honored to feature hundreds of regular and guest contributors, and on the three domain names that have played host to our site (iPinion.me, iPinion.us, and iPinionSyndicate.com), these writers and photographers have amassed well over a million views.

    For our birthday our team members selected their personal favorites to re-share. Some of these pieces went viral. Some were even picked up by larger media sites. Some remained, for whatever combination of reasons, relatively obscure, and we decided to put them out into the universe one more time, hoping these gems find the attention that we believe they so readily deserve.

    If you have some spare time this morning — and you’ve already figured out which Disney Princess you are on Buzzfeed and have met your daily quota of crazy cat videos (is that even possible?) — then we invite you to pour a cup of coffee, grab a bagel or scone (I prefer blueberry if anyone cares to bring me one), and sit down with some of the best iPinion has to offer.

    Finally, my partner Debra DeAngelo and I, wish to thank our iPinion family for sharing their amazing stories over the years, our family’s families for supporting us (emotionally and in some cases financially), as well as often serving, unwittingly, as the muse of many of these same stories, and our growing number of readers, without whom, we’d all just be shouting into an echo chamber. We appreciate that you’ve taken our slogan to heart and joined the conversation and we hope you continue sharing your thoughts and iPinions with us.

    Happy birthday, iPinion!
