It's your birthday!

XKCD has an incredibly timely and cute comic about woodpeckers and birthdays.
Today is my Blog's Birthday. It was an experiment in whether I could keep a blog focused on things other than what I was doing that day. It was also an experiment in whether I could write about science for the public. My blog peaked at about 100 unique readers, and is now somewhere around 30-40, depending on whether some IP addresses are different people. Not a lot of you post comments! That's sad. ; )

A lot of the things I meant to use this blog for, I haven't. I was going to practise Yugcetun writing in here more, but I've slowly figured it out, mostly, and I get plenty of practise in other ways. I meant to rope in a co-blogger, to pick up some of the slack, but I haven't found another person at the University who I could ask. I meant to write more about politics, but Troopergate and Palin's VP run removed any urge to talk about these things, since we're bombarded with it daily now.

Will I still blog a year from now? Aipaagni! Maybe I will, maybe I won't. I don't know the future. But I do know I'm going to have another beer tonight.

Happy birthday, Blog!

Happy B-Day Two Yaks, I enjoy the whole wildlife sciencey theme. (Obviously science is not my background, hence the use of the term 'sciencey.')

But I'd love to see more political commentary on AK politics OTHER than Her.

XKCD is a great comic strip, love it. Happy birthday to your blog, and please don't stop blogging- yours is one of the few that I enjoy reading on a regular basis!

PS: CabinDweller, I love your word "sciencey"!

I like the sciencey stuff, too and I appreciate when you remind me of an excuse to have a beer.
