That’s right. It’s my blog’s 2nd birthday today. Woo hoo!
A birthday is a good time to take stock and count blessings, and one of the best things about blogging is the people I’ve met. “Met” is the best word I can find for what we did, although in many cases, I‘ve never seen your face. We’re inventing a new kind of relationship here on the blogosphere, one where we chat and joke and share stuff and become involved with people we only recognize by their little gravatars. After two years, I think I get it. My entire perspective of the acts of reading and writing has shifted as a result. Thanks to you, this blog has changed my view of the internet, the noosphere, and the world.
If I could, I’d have you all over today to celebrate. We’d fire up the hot tub. There would be trays heaped with finger-food and fancy drinks. Games! A disco ball! We could dance!
So you are cordially invited to my party. It’s a new kind of party: a blog party. (We need a better word for it.) Please attend in the comments section below. At this party, how would I recognize you? Would you be dancing, arm-wrestling, cracking jokes (know any good ones?), or hiding under a table? What song would you select on the jukebox? Are you one of those tell-the-whole-world-it’s-my-birthday people or do you like to keep it on the down low? Do you believe in astrology? What is your best cocktail-party story?
Even if you don’t chime in, I thank you for reading.
(Coincidentally, the blog and I have the same birthday; however, I’m much older than Hat Girl.)
