CyberNet's Birthday Bash Giveaway EXTRAVAGANZA!.pngWow, time sure does fly, doesn’t it? It flew by so fast that we almost missed our Birthday! Almost… This past Tuesday, December 3rd, was our official 3rd Birthday. We’ve taken some time this week to put together another Birthday Bash full of giveaways, just like last year. Unlike last year, we’re giving you a heads up on when to expect the giveaways so that more of you will be able to enter.

Take note, the giveaways will start on Monday, December 8th. We haven’t decided yet whether to stretch this over two days or three, we just wanted to make sure that everybody knows that come next week, the giveaways will start. If you want to participate, you’ll want to check back Monday morning. Entering will be super simple, but we’ll explain details later.

Lots of changes occurred over the last year that we wanted to make note of. Since our last birthday, our traffic substantially increased, we gained a couple thousand RSS readers as well as two thousand more registered users. Another big change came in August when Ryan and I transitioned from working on CyberNet full time, to working on it as a hobby.

A big THANKS goes out to all of you who have supported us along the way. There’s no way we would have made it to our third birthday without you. Here’s a quick look at our statistics for those of you interested. After three years, we present our stats:

  • Over 5,000 registered users
