Celebrating Our Three Year Blog Anniversary

Long time readers will know it’s not really our three year blog anniversary, we’ve actually been around for more like four years. But the reason I titled this post as such is because three years ago we made the decision to remove all the credit card affiliate links from the site. If you haven’t read the post detailing our reasons behind that change before, I really recommend you do.

One of the great things to come out of that decision was that we’ve been able to build a community around this site, as readers have been more willing to share information/deals with us and each other. I think part of that comes from the fact that we try to put our readers first and part of it comes from the fact that we’re willing to listen to our readers and adjust the site based on their feedback (whether it be positive feedback or constructive criticism). I never thought we’d have the audience and reach we do when I first started out and I’m committed to try to use that to improve the lives of the readers.

I’m also eternally grateful for finding Chuck. Without him it’s likely that I’d no longer be blogging and it’s a privilege getting to read his content on this site. I’m also thrilled to have Sirtheta & Don L adding their unique takes on a regular basis. The biggest thanks must be left to each and every reader, especially if you’ve ever left a helpful comment or shared a deal or some insider knowledge. Without the regular contributions of readers this site would not be what it is today. If you’re a regular reader and have never commented/shared a deal, please don’t be a stranger!

Thanks for reading and indulging me on this selfish post and here’s to three more years!

    Salute! Salute! Salute!

    Happy Anniversary! There is a reason DoC is known as the Gold Standard in this community.

    • jay says:

      On one hand, there’s DoC. And on the other, there’s TPG “2017 Citi Prestige exclusive(!!) destination/champion/king of affiliate links and lord commander of all 75k Prestige referrals for 2 exclusive weeks, the Master-of-SellOuts”. Yea, I think I’ll bend the knee for DoC.

      • Blue says:

        You mean “Citibank ™ Prestige MasterCard ™”

      • D says:

        Exactly. I was just going to mention this. I was looking for the biggest sign-up bonus last week on a card (can’t remember which one) and the TPG article had a bonus at HALF that amount and talked it up like it was the holy grail. Can’t trust them.

  3. Gonzohawk says:

  13. Yao says:

    Congrats DOC! You’re the best blogger. Love reading your posts.

  14. Evan says:

    Great site! Appreciate the honest feedback you provide.

  15. Russ says:

    Eschewing cc affiliate links and focusing on original content are probably the smartest moves you made!

    I remember checking out this site in your early days when you first started promoting it (I saw your links on Fatwallet Finance) It came across as just another cc affiliate site that regurgitated others’ content and added no real value.

    About a year later other blogs were linking to you often enough that I checked out the site again and found you’d really improved. Now I check the site almost daily and refer others regularly.

    Congrats and keep up the good work!

  16. Houstonmama says:

    Congrats! Thanks for all you do!

  17. Lantean says:

    Great job guys!

    You are such a welcome change in the blogospehere and and unlike predatory blogs (OMAAT, TPG, VFTG, DD ect) you guys actually help! I guess because you’re not owned by the credit card issuers…

    Thank you Will and Chuck for making all the continued effort in collecting and compiling all the information sent to you. It not an easy job to deal with the huge amount of information and definitely requires excellent organization skills.

    Doctor of Credit is like the one and only unicorn in the credit card scene. It’s a blessing to have you around!

  58. Skippy says:

    Happy Anniversary! (Sort of.) I appreciate all the hard work that goes into this site. THANK YOU!

  59. Thanks for all the kind words, everybody!

  60. tinytavosa says:

    Appreciate all you guys do. The site has been a fantastic help for the last few years and I am only sad that I didn’t stop lurking earlier! haha.

    DP’s for all! In DP’s we trust…!

  61. JTI says:

    My first comment…Y’all are the best points blog by a wide margin and the only one I make a point of not missing. Congrats on 3 years!

  62. spamman808 says:

    Yeah guys! One of the few blogs i still read. You guus do abgreat job keeping us informed. Thanks!

  63. Mark says:

    Salute your dedication man. This blog is world class. The information presented is top notch and professionally written. I don’t know how you do this and what drives you to do this. It’s not like we are paying you money. Only issue I have is why you guys aren’t moving to a forum style website where it would be so beneficial to everyone including you. I have noticed you never want to talk about it. Be that as it may be.

  64. avi says:

    congrats and thanks for the solid content all the time!

  65. quasimodo says:

    Happy b-day! I’d like to know…who is Chuck?

  66. TheMonkeyTech says:

    Happy Bday!! Love this site!

  67. Trippy says:

    A timely place to thank the doc once more. Discovered this site some 10 months back and it has been profits galore since then.

  68. Louis says:

    I always wondered why other blogs never replied when people referenced your HIGHER offers.


  69. DD says:

    Hey, Congratulations. Thank you both!
    A great site. Invaluable information for our financial health and advancement.
    You are deconstructing the banking culture. For me the only comparable site in value is the fantastic CPFB itself – for as long as it will last. >_<

  70. Reubenfairbird says:

    You are my go to source for reliable info!! Keep up the good work and congrats!

  71. RV3 says:

    Im down with the DoC…yeah u know me! (Cue 90s hip hop music)

    To another year, keep up the good work #TeamDoC

  72. Chris says:

    I honestly hope you guys make enough from your AdSense revenue to at least make it worth having 4 people on staff. You guys are incredible, and have literally made my family $4K richer over the last few years…. and I wish you and your families the best.
