Six Years
Posted on: 4th of April 2009 | Under: Geek Talk, Life & Love

This blog and domain turns six years today. Wow, I didn’t know that I’ve been blabbing that long! LOL! Prior to my purchasing this domain, I was hosted at another domain for over a year (if I remember correctly). Before that, I was blogging at several different places on the web (blogger, tabulas, diary-x, blurty, livejournal, and even my manually uploaded blogs on homestead and geocities!) for almost three years. Do the math and it calculates to ten years of jumping around the internet!

Throughout those years, I’ve probably talked about everything that there is to talk about oneself; From teenage angst and school, to family matters and matters of the heart, to even trivial things like the weather, random memes, cockroach kissing (I can point a few people who would probably remember this! haha!), to auto insurance. I’ve also met a lot of wonderful people online that I can say have become really good friends of mine too. And for those who don’t know, I even met my boyfriend of almost six years, through blogging. It’s really wonderful what the internet can do to a person. :)

So, in light of the six years of this blog, I’d like to ask everyone reading to drop a line or two in the comment box. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been a long-time / regular reader or are just new or merely passing by, I’d still love to hear from you. :) Thanks!

    The only domain that I ever had that had some reputable anniversary was not a domain I could keep so you’re lucky. Happy sixth, and may there be more blogversarries to come! Haha! =)

    OMG! COCKROACH KISSING! *raises hand like crazy* I remember that! Do you also remember certain unfortunately named caterpillars? =P

    Maria G: Hahaha! It’s so hard letting go of this domain. Too many memories. =D Hahahaha! We used to think of the weirdest things, didn’t we?!? LOL! And how could I forget the caterpillar. That caterpillar is probably the only reason why I actually remember “that guy’s” name!!! Hahahah!
