While Shadowscope the blog doesn’t celebrate it’s blogiversary until June some time, Shadowscope the web site his nine years back on Christmas Day. I started out running the site mainly for BBSing and Skinning news back sometime in ’98 and installed my hit counter on Christmas Day, which is why I use that date as the official birthday.
I guess I was so busy working through the holidays and spending time with the family that I completely forgot about that.
There is another weird anniversary of sorts going on as well. I started getting paid to blog this time last year as well. Over all I think that it has improved my blogging as a whole. While there are some posts that I look at and say “?” and “why the heck did I write that?” I have been blogging more regularly, writing longer and more thoughtful posts (sometimes) and just had a good time doing it.
Up until this time last year most of what I did the first three years was post links and one-liners with an occasional rant thrown in to mix it up a bit. I really didn’t write much and the thought of writing a post of several hundred words just would not have crossed my mind at all.
Now it’s just not a big deal at all to whip out a post of several hundred words. Are they more entertaining? I guess that’s all in the eye of the beholder but I am certainly more entertained, which is why I started this dog and pony show to begin with…
BTW, I got the weirdest text message the other day..
“HELLO HOW HAVE YOU BEEN? WE HAD A FABULOUS MEETING TODAY! WE SURE MISS YOU BEING THERE”
What fucking meeting? I left the name off but I know at least four ladies with that name. I suppose I could call the number on the text message and see what it’s all about. I was afraid I had missed something that i was supposed to be at, so if you sent me this text message, send me a friggin’ email or something.
Jut finished boiling some eggs. I think it’s time for a nice little egg salad sandwich. Enjoy your lunch if you are eaiting.

Happy blog anniversary! It’s been a year for me too. Time flies. That’s funny about the text message, it sounds like you could be in trouble, if only you knew what exactly you were in trouble for, lol.
Take care, hope you have a great day:)
Thanks Christy. I figured it out last night. It was one of my employees from a store I used to run. Apparently they were having a meeting and she was giving me a hard time.
They hate that I left and anytime I am in the restaurant they give me a hard time.
