A Blogging Year in Review

I started this blog in July of 2005 but this year is when I've actually gotten very interested in it and posted regularly. The blog has a total of 210 entries and this year I wrote 128 of them and received 132 comments. The comments are the best part of writing a blog. Another good thing about writing a blog is that you can go back and know what you were thinking or doing at any point in time. So now that we are starting a new year and every TV show and news channel is doing a recap of 2007, I decided to do the same. And just like those recap shows where they rehash old material, follow the links to my old posts if you care enough. I am always hard on myself for not getting anything done with my life or not making enough art, but after re-reading all my blog posts this year I feel better. So what did I do in 2007?

Here is a list of my most popular posts according to the comments I received:

6. Yesterday Methadventures

5. The case of the Stolen Hearse

4. Kandinsky Sunday - Reporting on Mystery Man

3. Adventures in Online Dating

2. Do I get a thumbs up after this?

1. The End

In my first post of 2007 I posted a new year's wish someone had sent me. It said:

May your 2007 be filled with magic and dreams and good madness. I hope you read some fine books and kiss someone who thinks you're wonderful, and don't forget to make some art -- write or draw or build or sing or live as only you can. And I hope, somewhere in 2007, you surprise yourself.
Thanks to whomever sent me that wish. I did all that except for the book part. The year isn't over yet...

What do you mean you you haven't found a fine book!? And you failed to mention that you learned to eat PASTA!

Oh well, I still love you.

Best wishes to you in the coming year. I know that your list of accomplishments for the coming year will be even longer than the one for this one, simply because you are who you are.
