It's a Blogversary!!

After the birthday party I was at
last night, I decided against a
party hat.
Seven years ago today, I did a Google search for "free blog" and this is the result! As is my wont, I re-read my first post a couple of days ago and found out that my life has not gotten any more interesting over the course of the last seven years. Good to know!

So, I'll be having another giveaway for my blogversary. Details coming... soon. As in, as soon as I make them up.

Coincidentally enough, my blogversary is also the first day of NaBloWriMo. Today's prompt is: "Why do you blog?" Seriously, could that have worked out any better?

I'm pretty sure I started blogging because I read someone else's blog and thought, "Hey! I want one!" However, since then my posting and reasoning have evolved, through various hot topics and on-again, off-again streaks, to today's nonsense that I post mostly to empty out my brain and share my colossal goofiness with the world. I'm so glad that nearly 300 people have at least a passing interest in what I have to say. And I find it very cool to see what everyone else has to say, too. The blogging community is très fun.

So, that's about it for my Saturday, except that since October is here, and it's only 31 short days until NaNoWriMo begins, I'm concentrating on getting ahead in my homework. Which (of course!) when translated means, I'll be around to your blog to comment in December.

Do you keep track of your blogversary? (I had to get a gadget in the sidebar to remember when mine was.) Are you doing NaBloWriMo? Would you like to help me with my homework?

Happy Blogoversary! :)

Wow. Seven years is a lot of blogging.

I'm doing NaBloWriMo, too. :)

Happy blogoversary! Even off and on, seven years is an impressive run. Just think. Your blog is old enough to start school!

Holy Crow....seven years....and you are still "cheeky". I signed up for NaBloWriMo....let's have some fun.

Su said...

Sigh... all these congratulations and not a single offer of homework help! ;) Thanks, everyone! :D

Wow! 7 years! And I thought my 3 was a long time. In fact I thought it had been longer and kept rechecking the date until I reread the first couple of posts and it started coming back to me... the election was going on, etc. Anyway, happy blogiversary back at you (kinda like we share the same birthday-- should we do something together for prizes and a party??? LOL) and thanks for stopping be, glad your doing NaBloWriMo!!

Su said...

Next year, we should TOTALLY do a joint blogversary party! :D

Your first post was quite enjoyable. I like how PDA's and cell phones were two different things back then.

I've been blogging since the end of 2003 sometime. I wish I could find those first posts, but the Wayback Machine only can pull up posts from January 2004. It's still fun to go back and read over those things. (This is why I write all my posts outside of my website now so that they always exist with me and my personal hard drive.)

Thanks, Su, for being such a great example of a good, dedicated blogger!

By the way, here is the link to the first article I ever read about blogging. When I read this I thought, What an absolutely magical opportunity—publishing without the publisher!

Right after that I went and signed up for a paid account to begin chronicling my journey from the mission field back to the states.

Good times…

Su said...

Hmmm. Maybe it was you I got the idea of blogging from? And I'm glad Blogger has all my old posts, because I have no idea what a Wayback Machine is. I'm still not particularly up-to-date. :)

And thanks!

I'm several days late, but Happy Blogoversary!

Thank you!
