That indelible stain: Blogiversary!
Honestly, it's hard for me to know how to feel on an occasion like this. I started blogging because... um... yeah, why did I start blogging? I haven't the foggiest notion, really, which more or less sums up my sense of why I keep blogging now. Well, more accurately, I keep blogging now because that's what I do. I blog. Otherwise I wouldn't a blogger. Duh! Yet, despite my very real uncertainty about why I started doing this, and why I have continued to do this, I do derive a degree of enjoyment from it. I've met some neat, and funny, people thanks to blogging. I get to hang out with some pretty fun folks at the ASAs thanks to blogging. Hell, some folks have even sent me real books in the actual mail because they know me via blogging. And on some level I suppose it keeps me slightly sane by making sure I think about something other than sociology at least once a day.
So does this mean the blog will continue for a seventh year? Eh. Probably. I'll admit that I've considered closing it down of late, given how busy I am, but somehow I just haven't been able to bring myself to do it. So, for better or worse, it will probably stagger drunkenly onward, giving me a vehicle with which to make an ass of myself. As though I needed help in that department! And hey, there will even be a surprise or two in store for y'all this year, so get ready. For those of you who have been traveling with me for a while, thank you. For those who are new, welcome to the bizarre and tacky journey I call a blog. And for those people who don't read the blog... whatever. You can't hear me anyway.
Aren't you special?
