Happy 5th Anniversary to the Blog!
Hello everyone! As you can see, I've put away the blog's Halloween decorations for another year. I really hope you enjoyed the Countdown to Halloween here. Whether you did or didn't, please let me know in the comments. I'm always looking for ways to make the blog better.
Speaking of the blog itself, a momentous occasion has passed. Last Tuesday, October 30th, marked the fifth anniversary of the blog! It's hard to believe it's been that long. But I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. I love writing here!
The blog is my one creative outlet. It allows me to blow off steam, escape from the everyday toils that we all have, and just gives me a small bit of pleasure, seeing what I've posted and being able to say, "Hey, look what I did!" The blog has been a very positive experience for me, and for however long you've been reading, I hope it's been a positive experience for you.
I don't post as often as I used to, but I have no plans whatsoever of stopping. In fact, I'd like to do some different things with it in the future. I've really enjoyed the interviews I've done with comic creators such as Chris Sims and the Virtual Comic Con, and I plan on doing more interviews in the future. For years I've wanted to try podcasting, but my increasingly limited time plus total ineptitude with the necessary software has pretty much squashed those plans. Of course, if you have a pop culture podcast and ever need a guest, I'm available (wink wink).
After every anniversary, I go back through the past year's posts and label my favorites as Best of Me and You. They are the posts that I like the most or represent the kind of material I enjoy featuring here, so if you're new to the place and want a better sense of what the blog is about, those posts are a great place to go.
I've patted myself on the back enough for one day, so I'll wrap up by asking you to take part in the survey along the right of the blog. Please be brutally honest with what you think, and I will take all advice and criticism seriously. I can't make the blog better if I don't know what you the reader like and don't like. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for supporting the blog, and stay tuned--the best is yet to come!
