… I left my first comment on Pharyngula. A couple of days later, I repurposed my “Digital Cuttlefish” blog for reposting of comments on the various Science Blogs, so Saturday will be my 8th blog anniversary. Four years on blogspot, four years on FtB, I’ve seen my readership go from single digits to a thousand a day, and back down to maybe half that on the days I have written something.
I honestly have no idea how many original verses I have written over that time–certainly over a thousand (I have over 2,000 posts here, but some are repeats, and I tend not to count limericks). I invented a verse form, and there are over 2 dozen examples of the “sepielle” scattered here and there. I’ve got ballads, hymns, parodies, sonnets, villanelles, and basically more doggerel than you can shake a cuttlebone at. I have enjoyed the company here, both the other bloggers at FtB and (especially) my wonderful commenters.
So, thanks! Time to start another lap!
