One year ago today...

I read Corndog's blog for the first time. It was the post on bad cover songs, taking nominations on the Worst Cover Song Ever. Joel Achenbach led me there.

After I nominated Adam Ant's cover of "Hello, I Love You", I read Corndog's archives. Then I read through his blog roll.

Eventually (in April), I stumbled on a blog that wouldn't let me comment if I didn't have a blogger account. I believe it may actually have been someone I found through Falling Down is Also a Gift, because I was thinking of Annika when I came up with my password.

So, Corndog, thank you for that post. Thank you for being smart and funny. Thank you for being there and leading me to Angry Pregnant Lawyer and Phantom Scribbler and by extension, everyone else on my blog roll.

I love you guys. I love this community. Big hugs and kisses to you all.

It's funny how many us of started blogs just so we could be allowed to comment on other blogs and then just got sucked right in ....

Hey Liz!

If it wasn't for Corndog and in turn Phantom Scribbler, I wouldn't have caught you writing haikus in our Wednesday staff meeting and I wouldn't have gotten sucked into blogging myself! :)

We do miss you here at Large Consulting Firm. Your replacement isn't nearly as funny , or as cute ... he's a bit hairy for my tastes. :)

That is so cool. I'm glad I found you. I have no idea how i found you, but I'm glad I did. :)

Angry Pregnant Lawyer said...

As you know already, I'm so glad I met you. It was fortuitous that you and I both wound up at Corndog's page, and became friends. (Thanks be to Corndog, too!)

Isn't it funny how we find blogs through other blogs, and many of the bloggers we read also read each other? Nice little community we have here in these internets.

Happy blogiversary.

Tis the season, eh? Seems like everyone starts a blog in the bleak midwinter.
