Is it just me, or does the idea of a Ten Year Plan for a Blog seem odd?
For every UID, of course, there's one of these orange anniversaries every year, so my individual one isn't such a striking thing. But the fact that it has a zero at its end does remind me that this place, this community certainly has some staying power. Not bad for a collection of absolutely Not Serious People.
Who wudda thunk it?
As for me, I just want to say publicly: thanks for the anonymity kos, it has brought so much to my life and in such atypical ways than could have ever been imagined when you were putting together your however many year plan back on Day 1. Without a gilas girl or any other moniker I might have chosen, I wouldn't have posted that first comment. I had actually posted prior to 5 April, but using the "x" that the old system allowed. It took me a while to get up enough nerve to actually register and connect directly to other folks on the internet, and the use of a moniker was crucial. Had I been required to use my meat space identity, I never would have done it. And the things that anonymity has made possible for me, via participation at the site, are multiple. Sanity and more stable mental health are not the least of them. So, anything I can do to somehow pay that back...I'm here.
Sheesh, enough meta already, don't you people have anything better to talk about? It's Friday night for cryin' out loud!!
