3rd Blogiversary!

Three years ago today, I called in sick to work and decided to start a blog. I think I thought I'd become Daily Kos overnight, so I started blogging up a storm. My first day's posts included a rant on Iraq that was longer than anyone would care to read, a bratwurst recipe and other assorted nonsense. I'm glad I got over that.

Thank you to the 10 of you who continue to check in regularly. I'm sorry this blog isn't what it once was; hopefully, once things get a little more settled in my new life here in Oregon, the Muse will return and I'll be inspired once again to write thoughtful, provocative posts.

Hugs!
Andy

Only ten? Well, I check in every day, just about. I enjoy reading your thoughts on current events and hearing about what's going on in your life. And those long posts you used to post? I couldn't ever get through them--I guess I'm much more of a sound-bite kind of person, at least on the internet.

I've gone through phases where I felt like maybe I should hang this blog (meaning mine) because I didn't have any more original thoughts coming out of me. But I hung on and some more came out yesterday. :-)

There are quite a few more than ten of us, Andy. You may no longer be in my city, but you are still in my heart.

Happy Blog Bday!

Happy birthday, blog! Andy, yours beat mine by about 3-1/2 months :)

Are you saying your cats aren't thoughtful and provacative?

Quinn said...

I'm here.

Happy Anniversary...

Yes I come to read every day! And also because I love your children. I know I can count on a smile whenever I come to read and Starbuck is sitting here waiting to play!

tee hee

Well, according to Sitemeter, I'm currently averaging 119 visits a day....so yeah, that's more than 10. I've got some lurkers out there! That's down from about 150 when I used to be interesting. Little Cicero is in college now, so he has an excuse.

Another one of your stealth readers checking in. Though I almost never comment (obviously), I do read you regularly :).

Matthew said...

I usually follow the RSS feed, so maybe I don't show up in the hits...

Howdy!

I read you regularly, but not daily. I'm trying to break a blog addiction so that my life will become real rather than virtual.

Don't worry about cat blogging and anti-temping rants. They provide a pleasant balance to your more intense political/intellectual efforts.

Congratulations on your third blogiversary!
