A play on the Old Gold and Black, the blog was created by Zach Smith, a student at Wake Forest.
A first-generation Deacon from Texas, Smith didn't grow up a Wake Forest fan, but he's definitely learned in a hurry over the last few years.
On September 27, 2007 the Old Gold & Blog opened for business with this post. The blog grew steadily over the next several months, attracting over 3,500 visitors in December, only the blog's third full month of existence.
Thanks in advance for visiting, and if you know other Wake Forest fans who might be interested in the Old Gold & Blog please let them know about it.
