I just noticed that my third blogiversary is coming up; middle of this month.
Jan 15, 2004, as a lark, I posted my first blog entry. My friend Jen had offered me hosting space for a domain I owned; I just wanted a place to park the name, and maybe a few pages of storage.
Want a blog, while we’re at it? she asked me. And I figured, hell why not, though I’ve nothing to say and no one’s gonna read it.
So, on a sunny california mid-january day in ’04, I sat down and asked that question that almost every new blogger asks – why am i doing this?
Three years later, and I still don’t know the answer to that. But I do know that I was wrong, and people are, for some unknown reason, reading.
The phrase Long, Strange Trip comes to mind.
Thus, on Jan 15th, I’ll celebrate three years. And I expect you all to celebrate with me, taking a sip or a hit or a snort or a swallow of your favorite poison, and touching yourself or someone else (or, you know, me, if you can reach that far) in the most indecent way possible. Show me some dirty love, people.
