Splash du Jour: Monday

Well friends, today is the 2nd Blogiversary of Bookpuddle!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!
Two years of bloggitry.
Has it really been that long?
Wow! It seems like just yesterday I looked over at my roomate [we were living in an old fridge-box under the overpass] and said, “A blog? What’s a BLOG?”
And now look! I’m totally off crack! I have my own apartment, and a cat with severe gastro-intestinal problems [He pukes in my shoes on a daily basis!]
And, perhaps best of all, I’m famous.
I’ve been asked to star in a movie opposite Nicole Kidman! ← Actually that’s not true.
I’ve appeared on Oprah! ← Umm…. not really true.
I’ve been cited by Harold Bloom in his most recent book on….. ← So way not true that the sentence is not worthy of completion.

In all seriousness though, I have posted 965 blogs in this past two years.
I have had 32,300 hits at my site.
These 32,300 hits are all coming from about 15 devoted Puddlers, one of which is me. And my cat!
So to my devotees, The Wonderful Baker’s Dozen©, I thank you all for clicking on Bookpuddle from time to time.
All 13 of you!
If you are here right now, for instance, reading this, I have two final things to say:

1) I like you! 2) Have a great Monday!

You just had to mention Monday.

Congratulations on two years.

Congratulations, Cip!

I have every confidence that the year ahead will bring forth such spectacular blogging from you that Harold Bloom will not dare deny your existence.

May said...

Keep on enjoying writing, reading and living as you have done in the past forty-something years.

Two years of bloggitry!! (Actually, that sounds somewhat obscene...)
Congratulations and Happy Birthday - from one of your devotees.
I like you, too!
(Wonder what you were like on crack? Guess I'll never know.)

Here's one of the two for you, Cold Mo...of course, how do we know that you are not writing this and signing off as anonymous, cipriano?

Clever thing that you are.

I join the throng in saying, (Belated) Happy Blogiversary to you! And many more.

Happy Blogiversary to you! I think Starbucks should give you a free coffee of your choice since they get such good mentions here! And your cat--that's just a way of showing you his love. You must talk to him about not being so demonstrative in the future! :)

I discovered your terrific blog a few months ago and visit every day! Congrats on your 2nd year of bloggitry!

patricia said...

Oh dear! I came to the party late! That's because I've been busy painting my garden shed. Mea culpa!

Happy Blog Birthday, Cip! Many happy returns (and many happy hits!)

And I'm sure Mr. Bloom is just late in sending his card to you in the mail...

cipriano said...

To one and all, thank you for your well-wishes.
I look forward to many more years of insane blogging!
Thank you for reading!
