Happy Blogiversary to Me!
What does manicdote mean to me?
Well, I like to think of it as many things, actually. It’s a form of diary where I can reflect upon thoughts. But it’s also interactive because I have friends and family all over the country who can view my thoughts and make comments.
Don’t you love comments..? I love comments! I’m totally a comment whore. I love making comments on other peoples blogs and I love reading comments on my own blog. (hint, hint. nudge, nudge)
Mostly, manicdote is a way to keep in touch with family/friends. I know, I know, emails are easy – right? Just jot off a quick note to people. But when you’ve got a bunch of different people to remember…sometimes it’s actually easier to make one post here and then whenever they’ve got time they can keep up with what I’ve been doing.
Also the blog allows me the ability to post pictures (or even the occasional video) of what’s going on in my life. How cool is that? I can even blog directly from my cell phone, and have it update here. Very 21st century. No, Terry, we can’t upgrade to iPhones. They’re so overpriced!
A lot of people give away things or have contests for their Blogiversary. But I’m not going to because I don’t want to cheapen this special occasion with the materialisitic trappings of society. And I’m cheap. But thank-you to everyone who reads me, puts up with all the many pictures of the puggadoos, and who listens to me complain about the lack of any edible mexican food in Alabama.
In closing, here’s a list of our most popular posts; call it the “Greatest Hits” at manicdote.
- Richards vs. Doom: The Interview (2,503 hits!)
- Mission Kick Ass (818 hits)
- Michael Phelps Pants (795 hits)
- Biography (437 hits)
- Forrest Hump (406 hits)
What does this data tell me? Well, obviously I need to talk more about comic books, kicking ass, Michael Phelps pants, humping and myself.
And I say…Bring it on!
You’re in for another fun year, guys.
