Blogiversary: Now we are 6

Happy Blog Anniversary to me! It’s been six years now. Every time this date comes around, I have to stop and think how much life has changed. How much blogging has changed. One thing remains the same, I still use Movable Type. [yes, that was for you, Raul. :)]
It was my original plan to have a new design ready for the 27th, but my inability to settle on a particular design has made that difficult. I stress about it late at night when I am trying to sleep, how much I suck. And then I remember, no one is the boss of me. I can do what I want. And I laugh the laugh of the lazy and the procrastinators. Quietly, tho, as to not wake up Wil.
Tell the truth, I think one of the biggest impediments blogging, for me, is Twitter. It’s made me lazy. The mundane events that I used to expound upon for blog posts, now, more often than not, end up in tiny little tweets. I mean, the other day a baby bird pooped on my head, while I was out shopping with Evildeb. In the past, I could have milked that for a good three paragraphs. Now I send out a tweet. I have mixed feelings about that. I enjoy Twitter, and I’ve actually made friends through it, which is awesome. However, I don’t like what it’s done to me as a writer. I’ve been stepping away from it the last few days, trying to let go of my need to compulsively read every single tweet that came since I last checked.
So… anyway.. yeah, a bird pooped on my head. A baby bird. I think that’s lucky. And gross.
Thank you for six years of blogging fun!

  1. SIX YEARS! Congrats a go-go! Six years is a long time – c’mon, what’s the biggest change in blogging from your point of view? As someone who has only been at it for a few months I love to hear what’s changed.
    I mean, six years ago what was I doing? Hmm, actually, that’s a time best left in the past 🙂

  2. Congratulations! I admit that Twitter has kind of grabbed my attention too. Some of the things I’d usually blog about have been tweeted by the time it’s time to write. Oh well. The struggle makes it sweeter… I guess. 🙂

  3. CONGRATULATIONS! That is such a long time. Here…let me get you a cocktail.
    Also, I am with you and Dave about the Twitter thing. Ebbs and flows.

  4. Happy Anniversary!!
    I dunno, maybe I’m an old fart and those pesky kids should get off my lawn but I’m confused.
    How do I know what belongs on IRC, what belongs on my Facebook status, what belongs on a blog post, what belongs on Twitter?

  5. Happy Anniversary.
    Were you and EvilDeb sining “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun” when the bird pooped on you? There’s something about Cindy Lauper songs that draws bird poo to people (at least Cindy).

    Happy Anquishversity! Tweets are tempting, yeah, but I’d’ve preferred three paragraphs about bird shit on your head, and how much Evildeb was laughing.

  7. Boo to tweets. Twittering is making you not write! The horror!
    Here is where I half-heartedly wag my finger at you and look all mean and stuff, sort of. As I have not been tweeting, blogging OR writing anything at all, who am I to point and wag fingers?
