here we are again

I'm certainly not one to break tradition, if I can help it. So for the SEVENTH(!) YEAR IN A ROW, I will be participating in the NaBloPoMo, posting every day of November.

Currently, I spend double-digit hours a day staring into a screen and looking for answers--even on the weekend--so I've decided that this month I will be doing 30 *flashback* posts. They will be new, of course, but I hope to reference, expand on, update or otherwise re-run what I like to look back on at do they read obituaries in hell? with fondness.

So it's only fitting that I go all the way back to the very first post on this blog, March 7, 2005:

pumped up 
In which I pontificate about filling air in my tires and how I'm glad I know how to do it.

I didn't really know what blogging was about. Heck, like 1% of all people had even heard of a web log in the spring of 2005. But I randomly found a blog called Tequila Mockingbird and just loved what she was doing. So I thought I'd give it a whirl.

If I had any idea it would bring me closer to a friend in NY than I was with any of my local friends at the time, introduce me to a bunch of wonderful people--including my husband--and provide a great way to win bets about when things happened over the last few years, I probably would have done a LOT more editing.

Let me know if you're participating and I'll try to comment as much as I can. C'mon, we both know it: Comments are the coal in the old blogging locomotive.

I got pumped up about NaBloPoMo a few days before Nov 1, and then quickly deflated. My heart's just not in it this year. But I'm glad you're carrying the torch! Look forward to some coal, er...I mean comments, from me!

yay! thanks for reading, ladies!

I'm catching up on your blog in reverse, so now I know that you're doing NaBloPoMo, not NaNoWriMo. Which I probably would have remembered from last year if my brain were still functional, but I've been at a computer all day today, and I'm beat.

I love that it was Tequila Mockingbird who brought you into the joys of blogging - because that's what did it for me, too! I wonder if she knows how many people she inspired.

I can't believe it's been since 2005... I've been neglecting my blog kind of a lot. I'll try to catch up.

velocibadgergirl said...

cadiz12 said...
