SCARED MONKEYS … 20,000,000 Served!
We would like to thank all of our past and present readers and commenters on both the Front page and in our Forums. Thank you for being a part of Scared Monkeys. Thank you for taking the time to make a difference. Don’t ever think that your voice cannot be heard.
Scared Monkeys has always been about providing an array of news, politics, current event stories, crime, missing persons, humor, Vanderbilt’s artwork and editorials so that you the reader can become informed and participate and be interactive in the process. 20,000,000 visits later and nearly 60,000,000 page views. Many first became associated with SM during the Natalee Holloway case. Many others have become readers and members since.
A long the way having MSM producers, state, local and federal LE reading through the numerous posts and comments. Scared Monkeys has always treasured it’s relationship with Texas Equusearch and the selfless volunteer work they do for families of of missing. Scared Monkeys has been featured on TV, radio and print. SM has provided back ground info to MSM and made special guest appearance on Court TV going up against the bad guys. SM has also been a part of many missing person and crime cases behind the scenes and even found it’s way into the exhibits for the defense in the Kalpoe’s v. Dr Phil case.
Scared Monkeys was always meant to be a community where one could go for a multitude of stories. The main focus is obviously crime, missing persons and politics. However, SM has also been a place to have fun as well. I learned a long tome ago if you cannot laugh at yourself, who can you laugh at. However, there is also a serious side to what SM does. We have not just written about crime and missing persons cases, we have participated in them as well. SM was one of the first to put their volunteerism where their keyboard was an participate in searches for the missing. I will never forget the day that Tim Miller asked whether I wanted to help search for Natalee Holloway. It was not about covering a story, it was about helping find a missing girl. We thank the many Monkeys who have taken the time and given of them self for other in helping in missing person searches as well.
A long the road we have been fortunate enough to bring on Dana Pretzer of The Dana Pretzer Show and the multitude of amazing guests and pundits that have taken part in his weekly show. Ask yourself, what guest that you see on TV who has not been a special guest on Dana’s show? With guests like Wendy Murphy, Clint Van Zandt, Tim Miller, Pat Brown, Dog the Bounty Hunter, Stacy Dittrich, Diane Dimond, Mark Williams, Cyril Wecht and Robin Sax just to name a few.
Most recently we have added Blink and Blink on Crime to the Scared Monkeys stable.All one has to do is read the crime posts and instantly understand the tremendous work and dedication that she and her team do on crime stories. BOC is a site unto itself that has taken off due to the great writing and sleuthing by Blink and her investigative team. For exclusive, original content there is no where else to go. BOC has instantly become one of the best new crime blogs on the Internet today.
Lastly, I would be remiss not to thank you, the readers. You make it possible. Although we never expect everyone to agree all the time we are appreciative that it is most respectful. A thanks also goes out to our Forum moderators, San, CBB, Nut44x4, 2NJson, Bearlyhere and Muffybee. A special thanks goes to Klaas. Anyone who reads or has spent time on Scared Monkeys knows the hard work that Klaas provided. Thanks!
It has been an amazing ride with so many bumps, turns, hills, valleys and server crashes. Thanks to all who made it possible and here is to the future and the many innovations and special surprises down the road.
With Much Appreciation, Red
