Seventeen Angry Years

Happy Angryversary.



Greetings, good readers of this website. Today is Valentine's Day, and I hope you observe or ignore it in whatever way you see fit. I just wanted to note that today, by complete coincidence, also happens to officially mark the 17th anniversary of Angry Asian Man. Seventeen! Pretty sure I did the math right.

On this day, seventeen years ago, I cranked the knob that launched the very first iteration of this blog, in all its rough, rudimentary splendor. I had no idea that it would become a "thing." I had no idea where it would take me. And I had no idea it would become my professional and personal calling. But here we are.

I do this little commemoration every year, and every year, I still shake my head and ask myself, how did I get here? The answer is you, the awesome circle of friends and followers that have rallied around this little blog, encouraged by passion and fueled this little project, day by day and post by post over the last seventeen years. This hustle is not easy, dear readers, but you've kept it going, and I'm grateful.



So thank you. Thank you to the loyal readers who have bookmarked the site on their browsers and still check in every day. Thank you to the awesome, engaged folks who always like and share and comment and favorite and everything on social media. Thank you to the rad-as-hell community that has surrounded and supported me along the way, in blogging and beyond. No thank you to the haters. I have no time for you.

And of course, a huge thank you to everyone who's ever supported the blog with donations, especially the ongoing monthly subscribers. That said, this is a good time to remind you that we are currently in the middle of the 2018 Stay Angry Subscriber Drive, in which I ask for your help to pay the bills and keep the lights on.

If you're believer in the blog, you've found it helpful or valuable, or you just want to support someone who's following their passion, please consider kicking in a donation. As a gift, you'll score yourself a really nice limited edition "Stay Angry" t-shirt. Go here to give a one-time contribution or sign up as a monthly subscriber.

Thanks again. And Stay Angry.
