It's been a YEAR!

Wow wowie. Its feels like just yesterday when i struggled up to start a blog. I had no idea the impact it would have on my geeky asocial life...but look at it now! Or, rather look at me now. What started out as a thing I did during my free time from a cyber cafe has evolved into an addiction and a part of my life. Blogging as we all know is not just about yourself, its an interactive process with other bloggers out there...and this has been an experience worth the while. Nothing beats the whole bloggin phenomenal. (toasting a fanta glass!)

I keep repeating, that it's a secret life out there, that many are not privy to. Many don't know its existence or our participation in it. Very sad. Cause in a job interview, and someone asked "what are one of your accomplishments in the past year?" "Blogging!!!" should be an answer.

So, in celebrating this milestone...I'd like to thank each and everyone of YOU that have become part of this blogging life with me. For the comments, the emails, sms's and calls...through the cheap humor and definitely the Blogwars! The annoying tags! The jokes at my expense. The babes and dudes and the adopted families.

I have no idea what am supposed to do at a 1yr anniversary...maybe like in the movies I should re-release some of my favorite posts:director's cut version un-edited? Re-edited in THX?

If you all have ideas let me know? If you have ideas for posts that you would like written-let me know. And NO, I'm not asking you to ask personal questions like "when did u stop wetting the bed?" I'm asking for post suggestions. If you would like a previous old posts re-edited with more spice, shout out!

So once again its been a BLAST being a member of KBW and meeting all of you.

HAPPYBIRTHDAY-year old blog of mine!

And i'd like to introduce you to my second new blog nichgich.blogspot.com solely dedicated to my movie/tv addiction.

OOPS - I deleted the prior one becoz of a type. Here's a better one ...

"I keep repeating, that it's a secret life out there, that many are not privy to. Many don't know its existence or our participation in it. Very sad. Cause in a job interview, and someone asked "what are one of your accomplishments in the past year?" "Blogging!!!" should be an answer."

Nick, I say the same thing. It's funny how for so many of us - we're mild mannered x, z, and z by day - and internet celebrities by night. So many of us can't even mention our little habit for fear of - who knows - just a fear. Some employers have shown people the door just for having blogs - livelihoods lost for nothing when really they ought to be thinking how they can use someone with these skills - all this high caliber writing, web design (well for some of us), PR, and analysis going unrecognized. Anyway this medium is still in its infancy and no doubt we'll get our due and recognition in some stream someday.

And with that said ... YOU ARE PHENOMENAL AND HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY!!! :D

PS: I agree with you on blogging being an activity & accomplishment worth mentioning at job interview. Daaaarn, I know in my profession I can/should hire a blogger to get some creative work done.

Ways to celebrate...very simple & am with Poi on this:

Gichu, congrats for boring the crap out of us for the past year!

Seriously, it takes guts and a sprinkling of absolute boredom / sad social life to keep all of us entertained - which you have done pretty well :-)

Cheers
