The Internet Newspaper and iconic news/breaking stories blog, The Huffington Post, is turning 5!  Happy Birthday to The Huffington Post!

I decided to help HuffPost celebrate by telling my fans and readers why I love the site.  As you know, my passion is singing and songwriting, but I am also very active on the social networking site, Twitter.  It was there that I got to know several of the contributors at The Huffington Post: @2morrowKnight and @notifyneal.  From there, I became a regular reader and then a subscriber of HuffPo.

I guess I didn’t know what I was missing! More than 3,000 people contribute to the breaking news stories and other features at the site.  No other site offers the variety and freshness of the content of The Huffington Post.  No wonder it recently broke its record, exceeding 40 million unique visitors in a month.  Perhaps not surprisingly, The Huffington Post is the most linked to blog on the Internet, according to Technorati.

With an average of 23 million readers a month in the U.S., The Huffington Post has a broader reach than NYTimes.com!
