Best of Quiet Mike 2014As 2014 slowly grinds to an end, so does Quiet Mike’s 2nd year in operation. Our little site has more than doubled in the last year in just about every way, and we have all of you to thank for it.

Some great new writers have joined our team in the last year including Chad R. MacDonald, Sean Everett and Wendy Cooper just to name a few. Not to mention the writers who have been with us since the beginning such as Julian Drury and Michelle Simmons.

2015 is shaping up to be a busy, but productive year for us. With the recent additions of writers Michael Eric BrownThomas Boyd, and Katy-May Hudson and a complete site overhaul expected in the first quarter of the new year, 2015 is looking bright indeed.

In the meantime, enjoy the Best of Quiet Mike’s news articles and opinion pieces from the year that was. From all of us, to all of you, we thank you!
