Technically, August 4, 2006 was my second blogiversary. This is my 444th blog post (not counting the Monkey Playing Cymbals collaborations, Ich Bin Gunter and Living the Life Quixotic).
Frankly, it feels like more than two years. It has been the best of times and the worst of times. But I think I have come to terms with this demon known as blogging. And maybe, just maybe, I can wave one of my two candles at those of you just starting out (as long as you are not one of those 1000 monkeys I've already dissed) and tell you to keep walking into the light. It's a long and winding road, but boy, you've got to carry that weight (that was for Beatle hater Kristy).
Not that I'm what I'd consider a successful blogger. But I am a blog survivor. And I'll probably hang in here until we move on to whatever writing fad takes blogging's place.
Anyway, I wanted to thank all of you who have commented over the past two years (especially Shandi and Lights who have been with me almost from the beginning). I don't want to forget Mickey, either. Or Cherish, Gina, JanePoe, Hayden, I Ride the Bus, Kristy and R. And last but not least those who came for awhile and left...like Zagu. I wish you all happiness and good fortune.
This blog's for you!
