Can you believe it? FlowingData is three years old today. I’m in the middle of a cross-country move, so I can’t get into the number rundown like I usually do, but I just wanted to take this chance to thank all of you for reading. Thanks for sharing links with your friends and sending in suggestions. Every retweet, like, digg, and stumble helps FlowingData reach a wider audience.
It seems so long ago when I was just rambling to myself around here. Now there are 40k of you. Next year, 100k?
Thanks to all the sponsors too, past and present, who help keep the gears turning around here. I couldn’t have done it without you.
Happy birthday, FlowingData!
Grab a sticker and show your undying love for FD for everyone to see :).
Congrats Nathan! You’re doing a fantastic job here. I hope you get to that 100K mark very soon.
Any chance you can send those stickers to the UK?
postage does cost a little more, so if you can contribute $3, then i can send some sticks your way :)

The quality of a blog depends so much on the heart soul given to them by their author. I can certainly see and feel the heart and soul you give to yours.
I’ve learned so much about visualization from your blog, and it’s had quite an effect on the posts I’ve written for my blog.
