Four Years

Today is the fourth anniversary of the blog. Over 12,000 posts and 350,000 comments. I can't even imagine the number of words that have been written. The number of times I have had to mention Lindsay Lohan and then cringed for 30 minutes after. I have said it before and I will say it again, but I know I would not have made it through these past four years without all of you. Not a chance. Every day I spend with you is like spending with my family. Love and fights. Talking and laughing. Eating and drinking, and lots and lots of great conversation. All of you are why I keep coming back and keep writing. Thank you so much for everything and I am excited to see what happens between now and anniversary number 5.

Happy anniversary!

SkittleKitty said...

Thanks and Congrats, Enty!

Karmen said...

Man how time flies. Since google tells me the 4th anniversary gift is flowers or fruits, what better way than to send you this link of bacon flowers: http://bit.ly/d39EdP

Happy 4 years, big guy!

TinselSass said...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! So excited to see CDaN thriving. Enty, hope that means you are, too. Whether locked in a basement, battling your exes or swilling stale beer. Cheers and best wishes!

Happy Anniversary! I don't post much but read daily. Love you and the commenting family. What a great place to 'avoid' work!

Wonder said...

Been coming here every day for almost 4 years. THANK YOU, Enty, for being part of my daily schedule.

RJ said...

Happy Anniversary!! I've been a reader for almost the entire four years, and a proud poster for almost two years. I love this site!! The pictures, the blinds, the community of posters. Love it all! Keep on keeping on, you big ole wonderful, bacon-loving lawyer!

Lissette said...

Love reading this, Enty! Thanks!

bramblewitch said...

Love ya enty and have for all those years. I still come here several times a day.

Char said...

I <3 this blog! Thank you Enty!


After discovering CDAN, I promptly gave up Perez and Ted, and I stick to this and Dlisted now. Yes I still have a sick addiction but I think of it as my positive and happy place now!

mngddess said...

Enty, you are never far from my thoughts. In fact, I was walking into the Quickie Mart next to Universal's Simpsons ride when I saw a poster for chocolate covered bacon in the window. You're EVERYWHERE, darling!

Hoping someday to have an Enty convention,

Cyn

Merlin D. Bear said...

Happy Anniversary Enty!!
Thank you for everything you've done and continue to do daily - as most everyone's already said, (and I'll cheerfully repeat ad infinitum) you're my main go-to/must read daily...
At this point, I don't know what I'd do without you!
Know this, however...if you're ever in this neck of the woods, Varsity's on me.
You'll never think of bacon again after you've had their onion rings...seriously the best grease EVER!!

califblondy said...

Enty, happy anniversary and thanks for the hard work.

I couldn't impress my friends and family with my vast knowledge of everything Lindsay, et al, without you. The Mum is always asking how I know so much and I tell her it's all 'cuz of you and the posters too.

Carissa said...

We love you Enty! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

The Nightmare Child said...

*hoists a beer*


To Enty.

RenoBlondee said...

Thank you so much for what you do Enty! This website is what I get excited about most every new day on the computer! Love you!

FS said...

Happy Anniversary, and bacon covered cyber lovemaking to you!

Or you know, some other appropriate sign of affection and appreciation for your work and your website. :-/

Lioness70 said...

Happy anniversary!

This is my only bookmarked gossip site. ;)

rubyjean said...

Happy Anniversary Crazy Days And Nights !
Four fabulous years, Well Done.
I have been following for Two now and just adore my CDAN daily.
I would be lost with out it.
Hope you have a beautiful bacon-filled day Enty my dear friend.

Momster said...

Happy anniversary, Enty and CDAN. The traditional 4th year gift is flowers or fruit, but I'm sure bacon would be most appreciated!

New Life and Attitude said...

Happy Anniversary Enty! I found you just over 2 years ago and have enjoyed every single minute of it since!

Lady J said...

Congratulations Enty! I love your blog! I read it everyday and will continue to as long as you keep posting!

Heather Lillywhite said...

Me and Jagerlilly love the stuffing out of you, Enty!

digitaleve said...

Hey Enty! I've come out of lurking to congratulate you on four years! I have been coming to your site daily for over a year...maybe more.
You are one of the best celebrity bloggers out there. I appreciate your honesty and stand on a lot of foolery in hollywood, plus you are one of the only bloggers I can trust to bring juicy, real, gossip to the table. LOL
Keep the blinds coming, they are the best part about it all!!!

- Digital eve

Melody the First said...

You're one of my few daily stops, Ent. Happy anniversary.

MCH said...

Happy Anniversary, Enty!
Best celeb/gossip blogger ever!
Most beautifully diverse & entertaining commenters EVER. :)


@Merlin D. Bear - I have been to ATL a thousand times & have never eaten at the Varsity. That's insane right??

mum said...

Love you and the blog Enty! You save me from an otherwise boring day and the commenters are the best! Very entertaining all the way around - happey 4th!!!

selenakyle said...

Us, too, Enty!

I think I have been on here since about late 2006.

First Blind I remember is the late night old man movie star with too much Viagra and Enty-delivered booze.

mwah, mwah, kiss, kiss

Majik said...

Love you Enty.

Aimée said...

Happy blogday Enty :) And here's to your bloglife being a long one :)

bitterella said...

Dearest Enty,

You are by far the best, most interesting, and loveable source for good dish. I read you every day and can't wait for the next post.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!

Love,

BitZ

Robert said...

I think everyone's covered all the ground I could, but let me thank you again for this site; I found it a couple of years ago and haven't looked back since. CDAN puts all other blogs to shame, as do the amazing group of readers and posters who all make the site what it is. Congratulations,

Robin the Mad Photographer said...

Happy anniversary, Enty! This site and Dlisted are about the only gossip sites I regularly read, and it's your perspective that makes it great! Let me know if you're ever in Boston, and I'll bake you some of my famous brownies/chocolate cake/chocolate chip oatmeal cookies/blueberry muffins...hell, maybe I'll make ALL of it in your honor...and if I ever decide to visit LA, we'll have to meet up so I can give you whatever baked goods I can manage to tote along on a plane. (Oh, and I'll take you to some great restaurants in my area, too, including my favorite local BBQ joint in my neighborhood!)

*hugs to the big guy*

feraltart said...

Happy Anniversary Enty!

Thanks to you and all the posters (and lurkers) for making this the best blog EVER!

My favourites are the kindness blind reveals. I am just a big marshmallow on the inside. Hope you have beer and bacon today Enty. I will aim for the beer.

Lauren said...

I love this website, and the commenters. Thats why I come here 4 times a day, 5 days a week. :)

Mooshki said...

Happy Anniversary Enty! I too would not have made it through these last four years without you and the dear friends I have made through CDaN. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Maja. With a J. said...

Congratulations, and thank you!


Haven't been here the whole time, but pretty close (used to be Harriet Hellfire). Still love it!

celtickat said...

Wow has it really been four years . . Happy Anniversary Enty. You are the first site I read every morning, been like this for all of these years. Thank you so much. I am sending a virtual bacon wrapped extra chocolaty lava cake with four candles Bon Appetito : )

Green Wave Gal said...

Happy Anniversary Enty!

I'll say it again. I've met some amazing, supportive, intelligent, sexy, fantastic women (and a few men) on here. The support I've received on line and in real life from my fellow CDaN-ers is truly remarkable.

Thank you ENTY!!!

Interplanet Janet said...

Love you (((((Enty)))!!!

Sherry said...

Happy Anniversary!!! ʚ(ˆ◡ˆ)ɞ

hunter said...

Sorry so late to wish you happy anniversary, Enty; back late from a long day.

You are amazing.

Thanks for it all,

Revali said...

happy anniversary enty! stopping by every day is something i still look forward to like a kid at christmas!

Thea said...

Congrats, Enty! I don't post much, but I'm an avid reader of the posts and the comments. Thanks for putting so much time into this site! Here's wishing you many more years and lots more bacon-y treats!

ardleigh said...

Happy Anniversary Enty! Thank you for taking the time to do this. I love spending time here. You are awesome! Wishing you a bacon cake and a tequilla chaser!

Big Sur Expedition 2008! said...

Um....mostly drinking. *clink!*

Happy A Day! The most precious part of my post-work relaxation is turning on the computer screen and coming here. Lainey is my #2 but you will always be my #1. Well, at least until you're dead and then I'm sure Jax will pick up where you left off and I already adore her, so....we're good.

ChasingHeaven said...

LOVE YOU!!!

braverwoman said...

Wow - time has truly flown by Enty. Been here since the Timmy Schmimmy blind. Has to have been 2 1/2 or 3 years. Wish I had started sooner, but there's always the archives.

Anyway - you are my number 1 site and my fellow posters feel like family. What a nice, intelligent, witty group. I'm in great company. Take good care big guy and thanks for all the goss. With love, BW

Jasmine said...

Oooh Enty! Happy Aniversary, like a few said before me I discovered you through dlisted and also promptly gave up Perez and Ted C. and just stick to you and Dlisted.
You are such a nice person who cares about people and it comes through in your gossip, making you one of the few people I read because your not full of the negativity (cough Perez cough) that so many other gossip bloggers share.
Your special and awesome and I still love you for commenting on my bday on facebook (its coming up again in a week btw:)
Anyways <3 to you :>>>>>
-Jaz

GladysKravitz said...

Happy Anniversary, Enty.

I've been reading you since late 2006 or early 2007--found you through a link on agcwebpages blind items. I know how sincerely you care about your readers--and it's reflected back at you today. 75 comments and counting.

Thank you for bringing a principled, steady view of celebrity to the rest of us. I always admire and trust your moral compass.

Monalicious said...

Happy 4th Everyone!!!

noel said...

Happy anniversary- and an MV clue too!!

WooHoo!!!!

Merlin D. Bear said...

@MCH (off topic warning)
Yes, certifiably insane!
However IMHO the only things really worth eating there are the onion rings and the Frosted Orange - everything else, everyone else does better.

Wil said...

Happiest of Anniversaries, EL!! Many, many more to you .. and us for that matter!

Mazel Tov!

zandra said...

Thank you for the hours of laughs, and many eye rolls - I've enjoyed them all. We are happy that blogging makes you happy!

canadachick said...

Love you big guy...Happy Anniversary. Keep 'em coming and ignore any haters they just don't know you like we do ;) - now go have a bacon sandwich and a few dozen drinks and get back to us later.

sunnyside1213 said...

Ditto what everyone said. I have been here for over 3 years and enjoyed every second.

PhoebeS said...

Congratulations! This is my go to site everday and I love it.

@Merlin D. Bear
Still OT:
I'll have to remember that & make sure we make a stop there next time. We did try The Vortex one of our last trips there & loved it.

Electric Warrior said...

Thank YOU enty, for being the first site I visit every day, for giving me a different point of view and for all the delishus gossip. I've turned on so many friends to this site and they all love it just as much as I do. Can't wait for all the upcoming gossip, loves ya Enty!

HannahPalindrome said...

Thanks ENTY!
I'm with Electric Warrior-your site is the first site I visit every day!

XOXOX

MB said...

Happy Happy "dude in the basement", looking forward to another year :)

IndigoBlue said...

I just realized that four years ago was when I went on my "temporary insanity" personal tour that only those of us who have been through a divorce (when you really took your vows to heart) can take....and I found this site when there was barely anyone here. I love that it has maintained integrity, respect, love, and openness between those of us who come back day after day. It's not a hating society, it's a loving and trying to understand one another society. That's what makes it different. And cool. And the best. Hugs to all.

Lil said...

Enty, love you big guy! Thank you so much for putting in the time and effort to keep us entertained every day. No matter who you really are, you're appreciated and I couldn't imagine an online life without you. :-)

KellyLynn said...

Thank you, sir, for another year of intelligent conversation and snark. Even if I don't comment nearly as regularly, I still appreciate this place and all of its fans.

GauchoGirl said...

Happy Anniversary Enty, you've brightened up my work day for the past 4 years!!

linnea said...

Ok, thanks to an insane work schedule and the time difference, I am SUPER late to this party but I still wanted to raise my glass and hats to you all - ENTY, commenters, you all ROCK!

boston_gyrl_34 said...

Thanks for keeping us all entertained Enty!! I couldn't make it through the day without you!

Luvtheblinds said...

Congratulations on 4 years!! I am late coming to the party but here nonetheless. You are my escape during lunch. Thanks for a most interesting read...Here's to 4 more!!!

redronnie said...

Thank you very, very much for developing an interesting community, for the hot gossip and the blind vices and the great commentary on all things riding the edge of hollywood insanity..it's been great looking forward to many more years.

roxy said...

The best gossip blog out there. I have stopped reading all the rest, and really enjoy Enty's post's. Here's to another 4 years

Merlin D. Bear said...

@MCH
(still OT)
Remember, only the onion rings and frosted O - I'm not taking responsibility for anything else.
And oh yeah, Vortex burgers rock!

Ruse said...

Yes! I'm the 100th commenter to wish you all the best...I've been coming here for 3 years and because of the other amazing people on this site, started pitchin in my two cents. I can't thank you enough for entertaining me during long, boring workdays and giving me and my friends so much to talk about.

The 4th year anniversary gift is fruit and/or flowers...I'll deep fry some of both and send it your way ;)

Sue Ellen Mishkey said...

4 MORE YEARS!

/fists in the air.

mindyj9 said...

Happy anniversary baby, got you on my mind! Thank you, thank you, thank you Enty for the best blog hands down. My lunch hour and whatever "me time" I can carve out for myself each day are spent curled up with your blog kissing the hours away (to quote my sister). Looking forward to the New Years Day reveals.

wenx said...

Happy (belated) anniversary, Enty :) thanks a million for all you do...my life would be a hell of a lot duller w/out your blog ;)

Gypsy said...

You are thanking US??? Bless you. I love this site and you are a part of my daily cruise. Thanks Enty! Keep 'em comin'.

Fish said...

Happy Anniversary Enty. It's been 4 great years. I've even told my husband about you...and he's okay with it

xox

Jamie's Girl said...

We love your posting style too. We know it is very genuine, and you are very genuine. That's hard to find in our world. If I had a lawyer friend out there, I would hope secretly that he would be you, Enty! If you ever need a friend in Houston, count me in!

Lisa said...

I read almost every day but rarely comment. De-lurking to say "Happy Blogoversary." I remember reading you way back when. :-)

sprinkles said...

Thank you for all you do, Enty! I rarely comment (usually, others have pretty much said what I would say and much more eloquently than I ever could) but I do read each and post.

Happy Belated Anniversary. Looking forward to many, many, many, many more!

kathrynnova said...

dude, you're the best. here's to another four!!

hip hip

lanasyogamama said...

Happy 4th birthday Enty! Getting a FB Bday greeting from you was the BEST!

I love this place, it's like the thinking man's gossip site!
