TLO issues another rare “Thank You” to everyone

6:28 AM EST on December 31, 2021

With today being the last day of 2021, I'd like to send a heartfelt thank you to all of our readers, subscribers, commenters, trolls, etc. for somehow, someway, helping The Lost Ogle survive another year.

This website obviously wouldn't exist without you all for some reason stopping by to read what we write, and boy, did we write a lot. In 2021, we published 647 articles on this site. These articles were clicked on about 2.1-million times. For the entire year, we had 1.2-million unique users stop by for one reason or another, and regardless of how or why they found us, we appreciate all of them. That being said, we appreciate our Lost Ogle Members and Subscribers the most! Thanks for supporting us, and local media in general.

I'd also like to thank our contributors Louis and Hayley. They're incredible, awesome people. Although I sometimes wonder why or how they put up with me, we're all lucky to read their wit, wisdom and words on this website. I'd also like to send a thank you to Marisa and Randy "Mile High" Mitchell. I had to move regular podcasting off my plate this year due to time constraints, but it was fun to work with them. Hopefully down the road, we'll find the time to return to the Bricktown Digital Media Studio.

Being the semi-successful businessman that I am, I'd also like to thank our local sponsors and advertisers for supporting our unique brand of infotainment, journalism and satire. If you need a new sex toy, go to Patricia's. If you want to gamble, go to the Grand Casino Hotel and Resort. If you crave a craft beer, go to Anthem Brewing. If you get hurt in an accident, hit up Cunningham & Mears. And if you want to gaze at local art, stop by Oklahoma Contemporary.

After the Covid vaccines became readily available in April, we reopened our bar entertainment business. In 2021, we organized and ran 410 combined bar trivia, bingo and music bingo nights for a dozen different restaurants and watering holes. I'd like to thank all the people who came out for trivia or bingo, all our venue partners for choosing Lost Ogle Bar Entertainment, and all of our badass trivia emcees and bingo callers – Addison, Justin, Spencer, Angel, Matt and Kayvon, just to name a few – for their work on the mics.

Last but not least, I'd also like to thank me! From publisher to editor to writer to reporter to bar event manager to emcee to trivia researcher to sales director to podcaster to IT guy to bookkeeper to janitor to social media bandit, I have to wear a lot of hats to make this site work. It's sometimes difficult to balance all that with my favorite job title – Dad – but all the groups and people I thanked above keep me going, and make it worth it.

Anyway, I guess that concludes my annual year-end thanking. We have some pretty cool things lined up in 2022 that I think and hope will take this site to the next level, whatever that level may be. We'll talk more about that stuff as the year goes on, but I'm very excited and stoked about it. Thanks again for stopping by, supporting whatever it is we do, and have a safe and happy New Year.

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We'll keep you advised.
