The Daily Ghost has become a huge success and I have many people I wish to thank….What better time than Thanksgiving!!! I am thankful for….
1.) My Daily Ghost team (@Manning422-Editor, general consultant @DJGoocher Site Design, upkeep @KernelForbin Sound @VentilatorBlues Icon design, backup proofreader @UnclePhilsBlog Consultant, proofreader)
2.) Scotty B for helping me out in the early stages and directing a ton of traffic to my site. Scotty also helped me out tremendously with the Brad Sands article and continues to be a great source of information. He is the best in the business.
3.) Phish.net for posting my article on their website and the kind words many of the admins have had to say about the TDG. Also, for the amount of time over the years compiling setlists and data so a project like the TDG can be created. Last to @Doctor_Smarty who wrote a fantastic Ghost song history, and did a killer job with his jam chart. A huge reference for me.
3.) My girlfriend for being amazing. For not being a hugh Phish head she is an amazing supporter. I am a very lucky man.
4.) For Brad Sands taking the time out to give insight to the first ever Ghost.
5.) All the people that contribute in the Phish community and make it such an awesome place. Many have helped me build an audience.
