Today is a very special day. It is the day we get to celebrate the 40th birthday of my business partner, Jason Crouch. I met Jason several years ago and I must admit I am very happy to have done so. He is a father of four, a wonderful husband and someone I am proud to call a friend.
So, for his birthday today I tried to figure out what could I do to help make his birthday special. After a long time of consideration & thought, I think I figured out a great solution. Jason is someone who loves comments & stuff shared. I remember him writing a post once titled: How to Get Over 100 Comments on Your Blog Posts – A Retrospective. The post became so popular that the network it was on had to shut it off after the post had over 3,000 comments. It was something he was very proud of and also something he was very sad to see shut off. So for his birthday today, I thought to myself: “Why not try for something like that here?”
Our blog here on 210 has been pretty popular in the past. It has had a few posts with several comments and a few that have been Re-Tweeted and shared on Facebook 50-75 times. So I thought, how cool would it be if we could share this post across our social networks over 100 times today and get at least 100 comments on it for Jason. I think it would be a fitting present for him.
In case you wanted something of value, here are a few other interesting things that happened on this day in history:
- Today is the 229th day of the year.
- Davey Crockett, Sean Penn, & Jim Courier were also born on August 17th.
- On this day in 1982 the first Compact Discs were released to the public in Germany
- In 2008 on this day Michael Phelps won 8 gold medals.
- Jason Crouch Born
So, I know those aren’t really that interesting, but why don’t you put something interesting in the comments & share this already!
