The Big Honkin' First Blog-O-Versary Post

It has been one year since I started the blog one evening on a whim. I believe there was some alcohol involved. Shocking, no? All of you who not only stop in here on a regular basis, but who take the time to comment, are the reason I am still writing posts a year later. It wouldn't be fun and interesting without you. I mean, come ON! Someone's got to come up with good content, and it usually isn't me. It started with a few people that I knew from the old 'Frell Me Dead' Farscape message board, and through the magic of links and getting to know your commenters, it eventually grew to a damn good set of regulars. So today I am giving a shout out to everyone who has ever contributed a comment here. THANKS!

The cast, in order of appearance:

Madre Farbot
Chelle Belle
dr sardonicus
Jim Donahue
Eartha Kitsch
Brooklyn Frank
mr. schprock
Paul Champagne

Congratulations to a successful year in business. It's your fine writing, intelligence, good humor, and excellent taste in music that make this a daily stop for me. Before I go to bed I'll have a Moosehead and raise a toast in the direction of Atlanta to many more years of blogging for you.

Jim Donahue said...

And many more!

I love your blog and am proud to be among your list. You keep writing, I'll keep showing up! =)

Happy anniversary!

Lot of incest going on here, but the good kind.

Though I'm a bit late to the party, it's a hell of a party.

Meh... it's not like I've got anything better to do. ;)

I look forward to the Big Honkin' 10th too!

Isn't it nice to be loved?

When I read through the list of regulars, I was skimming. I just realized it included pdm. I'm off, posthaste to see what he has to say.

Dave said...

That was a bust.

Due to the honor of the occasion, I think a guest appearance is called for.

Thanks everyone. Y'all rock!

Dave - PDM doesn't have a link because he doesn't blog. I could link to his course website (he teaches college Physics), but then we wouldn't be happily anonymous anymore. So that's out. I have offered him the chance to write a 'guest rant' sometime. So far, he hasn't taken me up on it and prefers just to comment once in a great while. Like here, here, or even this long-assed comment on MW's blog.

I love coming here. :D

Kathleen said...

Fine job. But you know, if you weren't interesting I wouldn't have come back. Of course, you post cat pictures... ;-)

Kathleen said...

Laughing at MW's long-assed post in response to something you said and then PDM's long-assed comment to that post and the MW's additional long comment to PDM's. Computer geek stuff at its best!!!

And for full disclosure purposes, MW convinced me last year to buy a Mac and I haven't regretted it for even a single second.

Madre Farbot said...

Just thought I'd say thanks to you there Cosmic Cat for putting up my link in your list.

And even though I've given up blogging on that site, at least you found my homepage; not like some others' that I could mention that's got their duffle bag stuffed with more than several things.

fermicat said...

bc - :-)

kat - how can I not?

madre - Those duffel bag guys are scary. Maybe they should update their blogs once in a while.

MW said...

"Somehow" I missed this. Well, better late than never (in this case at least ;-).


You're hitting the old bubbly again today, I hear. Ha. I wish I had some of that stuff myself. I love champagne.

P.S. By the way, I found this entry when I did a search for my own name using the Bloglines search engine for the first time ever (since you just told me about it).
