Thank You Media Temple!

I have been running Booooooom out of my own pocket for the past three years and in that time it has grown well beyond anything I could have ever imagined. This massive growth, while amazing, has never been free and when our monthly pageviews broke 3 million I wasn’t sure I could afford the costs of hosting it.

Lucky for me the gang at Media Temple offered to sponsor the site and help make the cost of running it a lot more affordable. They went out of their way to make sure Booooooom could continue to grow, and even spotlighted us on their blog.

So a big thank you to Media Temple! Boooooooom is now powered by (mt) VPS hosting on a pair of Dedicated Virtual servers. I’m not totally sure what that means but essentially we’ll be around for a long time thanks to their generosity.

I want to assure everyone this is not a paid advertisement, I just felt like it was the least I could do to show my gratitude.

Cheers,

Jeff

Roald Dahl

Love this quote from Roald Dahl.

author roald dahl quote and above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.
