My Third Blogaversary

In modern America, anyone who attempts to write satirically about the events of the day finds it difficult to concoct a situation so bizarre that it may not actually come to pass while the article is still a draft. ~ Calvin Trillin

I suppose today—or was it yesterday?—is my 3rd Blogaversary. I was thinking of listing the stats and accomplishment of Nick’s Bytes. If you’re really interested, you can find most of them on the sidebar. Just keep scrolling down and down and…

Three years seems to be a long time. I’ve met many, many fine folks while blogging, vicariously accompanied some on their treks and vacations, and probably learned as much as is in half the books of my library.

I’ve had the joy of introducing you to Alex and Muffin. In turn, I’ve been introduced to other kitties and doggies and fishes and even an ape and a bird.

I’ve had fun with the Too Bad It’s Monday jokes and humor. And I now received more and more emails containing humor to include in T.B.I.M. posts which gives me more and more laughs.

I’ve shared with you stories from my life about fun, joyful, good, bad, difficult and absurd times.

I’ve posted photos and videos of my family, friends, and especially the Furball who owns me.

I’ve allowed(?) Alex to write his own blog, Alexicon: A Feline’s Life with his Human.

I’ve had a forum for my thoughts about peace, justice, compassion, satire, hunger, homelessness, fundamentalism, prejudice, abuse, etc.

I’ve received love from folks in many forms: cards, letters, gifts, blogging awards.

I’ve heard and felt your concern when my computers have died (or been sabotaged by human or Furball).

I’ve gathered thoughtful words and good advice from comments left on my blog.

In summary, a lot can happen in three years of blogging—and I wouldn’t trade those blogging years for anything!
