Happy Blogiversary to Me: Introducing the Hall of (Obscure) Fame

A year has passed since I began blogging. (Actually it’s a year and five days, but so what?) In order to celebrate a year of gnashing my teeth, procrastinating, feeling guilty when I didn’t post regularly, feeling guilty when I did post but neglected the rest of my so-called “life” to do so, and agonizing over fine points of punctuation, I’ve added a “Hall of (Obscure) Fame” section over on the right-hand column, just beneath “My Non-Blog Articles”.

To assemble a list of my personal favorite posts, I read through my whole year’s output. Some of the posts I picked are lame attempts at humor; others are lame attempts at seriousness; some are a bit odd, and one or two are out-and-out weird.

It’s been said that all writing is autobiography. If so, the pieces in the “Hall of (Obscure) Fame” – reflecting what was going through my head when I wrote them, as well as what I was thinking last night when I chose them and not others – presumably say something profoundly meaningful about me. Take a look at them; and if any of you figure me out, let me know. I’ve been trying to do it for years, and I still don’t have a clue.

Happy Blogiversary!!

I like your idea about the food pellet when we hit the block blog button. That would be sweet! Or maybe crunchy.
