Way back when, on June 26, 2007, I started this blog. I put fingertips to keyboard because I love to write and I wanted a creative outlet. I started a book a few years ago, but as I mentioned in my very first post, “…I thought my insomnia would give me plenty of time to write a book, but it turns out I’d rather sit and watch infomercials on HGTV at 3:00 AM”.
Before I began, I only read the likes of Dad Gone Mad, Dooce, and Bossy. I was unaware there are trillions of blogs. I didn’t know there was such a thing as “blog-etiquette”. I had no idea what I was doing. For crying out loud, I didn’t even know how to enable comments until three months into this gig.
Some people were kind enough to point me in the right direction. Thanks Eden and Danny, for helping out a schmuck in need…and for doing it with kindness. For the record, that will be the last time you hear me say something nice about you. I have a sarcastic image to uphold, you know?
And, thanks to the readers who come here to witness my incoherent ramblings. You make this fun. Even if you’re only coming to read that my son licked my cousin’s knee at my Aunt M’s funeral (he did).
Your visits and comments make me smile. Some of you leave remarks more inappropriate than my son at church, but most are downright hysterical.
Speaking of comments, in honor of this blogoversary I’d like to pull a Carol Burnett (minus the yodeling) and take your questions.
