One Year Anniversary![Editor] I just realized that the Prison Pete blog is one year old today! It was on April 1, 2004 that I registered the blog name and made the initial post. You can read more about the origins of Prison Pete here.
Pete did not make his first post until several weeks later. At first his letters were sporadic, so when I decided to begin daily postings on June 1, 2004, I posted from personal letters Pete had written to me over the years from prison.
Prison Pete made the Blog of Note list in August 2004, and I was so overwhelmed by comments and emails that I almost discontinued the blog. Somehow I hung in for the few weeks it took for Prison Pete to drop off the list, and now activity has settled down to a steady 60-70 visits per day.
It took several months of daily postings to use up all his old letters, but eventually I caught up to the present day, and now the posts are all from letters written in the past month or so. But because of delays inherent in communicating via US Mail and transcription time, the blog posts will always be at least two weeks old.
Thanks for your comments and emails this past year!

I just want to say thank you for all the work you've done on the blog and I know how much you've sacrificed for it. I still find it fascinating, yet disturbing, but I read daily. You have been a very good friend to Pete and I know he appreciates it despite his whining from time to time. Hang in there and keep up the good work.
