Today, I've been blogging for five years.
Over the years I've been amazed at the friendships I've made through this blog, and the encouragement and support, and frankly patience, of my readers.
I started this blog because I needed something to occupy my mind during a difficult time. It's served that purpose more than once since then, but one thing I discovered as I went along... I really liked blogging.
It could be said that AD and LawDog are my two blog daddies, since it was their blogs that made me believe that I might have something to say that someone might want to read.
So a big thank you to both of them and to everyone else who has read, commented, conspired, or despaired over the years. And a major thank you to everyone who has inspired me, both on this blog and in my other writing, which has occasionally taken a very distant back seat.
If I started naming off everyone who has made an impact on my life through or because of this blog, this post would never end, so I'm just gonna leave it at that.
Oh, one more thing... I expect presents, guys. At least a cake.... something? Anything? Bueller?
