Blogiversary II

It was on February 22, 2005 that I first posted this.
It was read many times but never received a comment but it was my first tentative step into the whacky and obsessive world of blogging.
I like to think that people that visit here are appreciated and today is no exception.
I can’t imagine how drab my life would have been had it not been for my blog.
I love the writing, posting, editing, changing of templates (And Moe rolls her eyes {grin}), maipulating of widgets, uploading of custom banners; I love all of it.
But none of it would be worth anything if it weren’t for you.
Yeah, you.
The person reading this post right now.
That’s right. . . you.
I thank you from the bottom of my almost empty Guinness glass (the bottom of my heart seems a bit shallow right now).
You make me smile, think, laugh and obsessively look forward to this crazy hobby called blogging.
I pray you’ll stick around because I feel the best is yet to be.
A special thank you to the woman that allows me the time to be creative, my wife.
Blogging takes time. And she gives me all the time I need. That’s love.
I’ve put together a slide show of all the different artwork that has graced these pages over the past year or so.
It’s fairly short but fairly hip.
Click on my Blogiversary cake above and enjoy the show.
To all of you still reading, thank you.


ps. it’s already the 22nd downunder, hence the early post =0)

  6. Congratulations, Michael! And thank YOU! Between you and WC, I’ve never enjoyed my morning cups of coffee more!

    Thanks, K2 for all the support, Xmas CD and all.
    You rock, kiddo.


  7. I agree with the last comment, you and WC make for a nice way to start the morning. I’m more of a tea drinker, though. 🙂

    Happy blogiversary!


    Thanks, Kelsey.
    Put on the kettle.
    Tea sounds good. It’s almost bedtime for moi…


  8. 2 years-Congratulations!
    Good stuff-how do you find the time?
    Will guess a stogey and beer for your celebration-have fun!

    The time? How about 2.5+ hours on the commuter rail?
    Gotta find something to do.
    Thanks, Laho.
    Love to see your comments, but you already knew that, didn’t you? 😉


  9. sorry i missed the party. is there any cake left? congratulations on two years of excellent blogging. i know the blogosphere hasn’t been the same since you started.

    I saved you a slice.
    It will be on its way to you in about a week.
    Keep your eye out for a box… 😉


  10. aw, my little boy is growing up….Ooops, wrong sentiment. Happy anniversary buddy – I hope the blogging will continue to be a touchstone for you. I know I never would have taken the plunge if not for you – so I’m especially happy you became a blogger in a g-tortional, bassackwards, twilight zone sort of way. Did that make sense? Oh well, you know what I mean.

    It is funny the way things happened.
    I plan on continuing the journey.
    Thanks for the visit, Annie.
