Two Thousand Posts and an Anniversary

I noticed as I was logging in this morning, that this will be my 2,000th post on the mu.nu server. It seems hard to believe even after all these years that I've had that much to babble about.

And speaking of all these years, today is the anniversary of the very beginnings of Curmudgeonry. Back in 2002, my husband starting blathering on about wanting to start a blog. I didn't have a clue what he was talking about, but agreed to go along. He started this lovely and interesting mostly foreign policy blog named after the backpage column he wrote for our college news journal, with me and a few other friends along to write about other stuff. Slowly the friends started dropping off and then my husband moved on from his government job to one that required results and billable hours. And then I was the only one left.

Curmudgeonry moved from blogspot, to another server that disappeared suddenly and I lost about two years of posts, and then on to mu.nu. In seven years, I've had four more children, moved twice, changed religions and done about a million other things (as you can read in the archives of this blog).

I am thankful and grateful for those of you who drop by and leave a comment now and then. I enjoy your company more than I could ever express. Although both quantity and quality have dropped off of late in the blathering process, I hope some day to be able to once again string coherent sentences together and when I do, you all will be the first to know.


Happy blogiversary! I, for one, have greatly enjoyed your blathering, whether it happens often or occasionally. It is always worth reading!

And to think, none of it would have been possible without Al Gore.

Congratulations!! 2002 was a long time ago for both of us. I was a very different person in 2002. In some ways. (I wasn't any less sloppy or disorganized!)

BTW, you only changed denominations (unless I'm missing something!). Let's not add any fuel to the "Catholics aren't Christians" fire!

Thanks everyone.

And thank you, Lenise, I'd actually been thinking about that all weekend. Really, it was a change of churches and worship, but not of religion. It just felt like it.

Congrats on your blogoversary! You're now 2000 posts YOUNG! (And, if I may say so, every one of them I've read has been well worth it!)

As we say over at the Llamas, "Yip! Yip! Yip!"

I can still remember when your blog first came out, and it made some list of "hot - interesting" blogs. I felt a little jealous at first, but soon learned that if you are in blogging for popularity then you may as well hang it up, as it's a thankless job. The fact that you are still cranking out as many posts as you do considering all the household "tasks" you juggle in the air simultaneously is amazing.

[And if you want to think you changed religions that's "awright". Jesus is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.]
