3 Year Blogiversary

March 3, 2009 at 1:00 am 4 comments

Three years ago, I wanted to make a comment on my sister’s blog, but her site was locked down so only WordPress users could comment. So I signed up for an account and suddenly I found myself staring at a blaring blank page labeled, “This is your new blog.”

Well I could just let it remain empty, now could I? So I did a post. It was riveting. Brace yourself– ORA-01722 with ODP and Command Parameters.

And the comment that started it all? It was equally riveting:

The Comment That Started It All

Even though it turns out my technical posts by far draw the most views (All five of my most popular five posts have to do with programming) and even though those posts have saved my rump more than once (two weeks ago I referred to three of my own JavaScript posts), they aren’t my favorites. I tend to fancy the ones with connections between two different objects or concepts, ones that compare and contrast or reveal a pattern. I also seem to fondly remember the posts that have to do with poo.

So, after 3 years, 823 posts and a little over 380,000 views, here are a few of my personal favorites:

Snubbed McAfee’s Knob Pose! Fern, Fiddle Head, Crozier Fern Fronds and Fiddles
Instant Justice Crap to Iraq Tree Farm Silo Trees of the U.S.
Sinking Creek Mountain - Rock Beats Scissors, Moss Beats Rock Malcolm X, Prison…and Moss Top of Falls in Winter Something the Thru Hikers Miss
Poop in the Woods Club Poop in the Woods Club Douthat State Park - Kooshball Fungus Koosh Balls in Nature!
Hitchcock and Stem Cell Research John's Creek Mountain Trail: Tree Devours Blaze Hungry Trees

I do have to say, I rather enjoy blogging. It appears I owe my sister a pretty hefty thank you.

Thank you, Carolyn!

    I’m woefully late to comment on this, but: HAPPY BLOGAVERSARY! *grin*

    And I’m kinda like you: my top posts are all hiking posts. And my about page. Go figure.

    I’m happy I found your blog (or did you find me first), happy to have gotten to know you these past two years, and happy to consider you a friend. 🙂

    My 2 top posts are regarding Silent Sinus Syndrome. The third top post is about having a blacklight in my kitchen. Heheh.
