This is the 210th post I’ve published on the Mind Body Disc blog.
First, holy crap! When I started Mind Body Disc 2 years ago, it was with a blurry picture on Instagram. I never in a million years dreamt that it would grow into what it has today. 4500 Instagram fans, almost 1000 Twitter and Facebook fans, over 1000 blog subscribers, regular appearances on two podcasts (the Disc Golf Answer Man and Zen Disc Golf), and a list of other stuff too long to put here. I wanted to publish this post on Thanksgiving for one important reason. To say…
Without the continued and amazing support I get from all of you, I would have quit a long time ago. The 20-30 hours a week it takes to keep Mind Body Disc going would not happen if it weren’t for each and every one of you.
Some interesting facts and figures about Mind Body Disc since it has started…

Some of you have been here from the beginning. Some of you have joined the family recently. A lot of you fall somewhere in between. With over 200 posts on the site, it’s almost guaranteed that you have missed at least one quality piece of disc golf goodness. So, for your Thanksgiving enjoyment, I’ve put together a list of some of the articles that are worth revisiting or possibly visiting for the first time. Some of them represent milestones. Some are pieces I’m particularly proud of. Some are posts that went viral and you told me you loved them by how much you shared them.
So, settle back into your turkey coma and enjoy the best disc golf blog posts that Mind Body Disc has to offer!

As part of our recent site redesign, I put a lot of time and thought into the structure and searchability of the site. I spent a little money on a menu plug in specifically so that you can easily find any piece of content I’ve posted here. With over 200 posts and many more to come, that’s a lot of disc golf content!
Please take some time to explore the site. I’ve put ways to find anything you want in several places. You can check the menu at the top. You can explore the home page. You can use the search box up top. You can look through the archives. You can search by category. Odds are there’s at least one article relating to what you are looking for.
Once again, thank you so much for following along here on our disc golf journey together. It sounds weird to say, but after 200 posts, we are just getting started. There’s some big things to come, and if the giant white board full of ideas on my office wall is any indication, they’re gonna be pretty cool!
And as always, if you every have suggestions or ideas for us, please let us know!

Enjoyed this post. Thought you’d been doing the blog for a lot longer than 2 years. Keep it up, and if you need motivation, just know that I’m behind, trying to catch up.
Thanks Matthew. I love seeing other people do this and stick with it. The internet is littered with disc golf blogs that have been abandoned.
