I’m totally that girl.

Posted in Uncategorized at 8:58 am by Dagny Taggart

The one who tracks the dates, yo. Some of them are easy, some of them are hard. This one? Easy enough, as all I had to do was sniff through the archives to confirm my suspicions. And to visit an online dictionary to ease my fears – Blogiversary is still not a real word. Phew!

I’ve been using this space and this alias for about a year – and I swear, it is not now, nor has it ever been, my intent to bore anyone. Especially not to tears – stop crying, K!

So what I’d like to do today, is thank those I read for inspiring me along the way. Without further ado, Dagny’s Allstars:

January:
Ms. Jordan Baker makes me laugh. Frequently.

February:
When my sister shared her very, very new and wonderful news, I passed along some of Dooce’s wisdom.

March:
I learned the LMNts of finding a date in the blogger community!

April:
I’ve been following She Walks for some time now – this is just one of many reasons why.

May:
Beach Bum joined the community and provided some invaluable methods for pest unwanted suitor control…

June:
If anyone could pull of an orange mustache, I’m sure Lemon Gloria could. Have I also mentioned I kind of wish we’d met ages ago?

July:
The invariable well-dressed Virgle Kent provided the guy’s perspective on honest communication, and inspires me to even more respect for guys who are honest, even when they say things I don’t want to hear.

August:
Back to the inimitable Lemon Gloria for words of wisdom – it should surprise no one that I could have chosen a post of hers for every month of the past year!

September: It’s no wonder that the Cheerful Cynic has such a devoted circle of friends. Not only is she fiercely loyal and protective of her inner circle, but would you want to get on her bad side? Didn’t think so…

October: He who Throws Hammers made me a little more comfortable about having conversations with my alter ego.

November: The incredibly talented Nato began his NaNoWriMo effort – I’m completely addicted. Can I have more, please sir?

December: Dooce’s husband tells his tale at Blurbomat. I cried.

There are at least twenty others I wanted to include, people whose words have had an impact on my life, people I know, people whose sites I’ve just discovered and look forward to reading. For those of you that made me laugh just when I needed it most, or moved me to tears, who informed me, who shared themselves – thank you so much.

    Thanks for the birthday wish yesterday! Meeting you through the blogger community has been a true pleasure–and I read your stuff regularly still, even if I don’t often have time to comment.

    Hell, it amazes me that you can post as often as you do, given your insane schedule of late.

  2. Lisa said,

    I absolutely adore you. And you could never, ever be boring. Happy about a year! Big hug to you.

    Hey now… don’t knock ‘Blogiversary’. It’s in the Urban Dictionary, and the Wall Street Journal has used it. It must be a real word.

    Anyways, happy Blogiversary.

    Happy Blogiversary, Miss T.!

    The key of course is to get your alter-ego in the habit of bringing beer. That way, it’s not introspection – it’s happy hour.

    Good luck to your boys this Sunday!

    Man, it only gets harder, but you do it with class…. and a little bit of ass which is always a good thing…ass that is
