Belated Blogaversary

I'm late to my own anniversary. I lost track of the time, snorting hot sauce on the weekends has impaired my ability to tell time. On Tuesday August 9th was 'Just the Cheese' two year anniversary. I thought at some point I would lose interest in this hobby but it hasn't happened yet. I just read my one year anniversary post and 90% of the bloggers that commented on that post still follow and comment on this blog. I think that is so awesome that people have stuck by all this randomness. I wish that the one blogger that really started following and commenting on my blog was still around blogging. Asblackasobama come back to us, we miss you. I'm sure some of you remember him and others have no idea who he is, that is all right.

I would love to put all my time and energy into this blog so I can have thousands of followers and hundreds of comments but there isn't any money in it for me. I wish I could do this as a career, that would be awesome. I know there are professional bloggers out there but how many of them write random humor? What stinks is I have about double the followers I did last year but still get the same number of comments. Where did everybody go? Why don't they love me anymore? Okay PTM, stop crying, you're embarrassing yourself in front of your loyal fans. Deep breath, goooooosefraba.

I am turning this into some sort of rant and that wasn't my plan at the start of this post. I can't even remember what I was going to write about. Sausages? No. Hamsters? No. Macho Man Randy Savage? No. I guess I will never know. Thank you all for reading my nonsense and I hope that you will keep reading until either you spontaneously combust or you get kidnapped by a gang of dwarf ninjas. What's that? You want to offer me an award? How thoughtful, just put it with the others.

Sausages, hamsters and Macho man Randy Savage? sounds like the basis for an awesome movie, or a weird porno.

Happy Anniversary! :) So glad I stumbled upon your blog. Be sure to check out mine and my "Big Pimpin" tab...your powdered toast man makes an appearance.

Welcome to 2. Honestly, I would love to get paid to do this, but I also don't want to be those assholes who post 7 times a week and 6 of them are "reviews" and giveaways and shit. You keep doing what you're doing.

Getting paid to write this stuff would be awesome. There's probably a way to do it, but I'm having too much fun writing for the great folks at Blogger, the sweetest smelling people in the world (who could bestow upon me a Blogger of Note anytime they wish).
Happy Anniversary! I'm glad I stumbled upon your blog and hope I'll be commenting when you reach your 3rd year (provided the Mayan calendar isn't off by a few months and I'm not buried in some random act of volcano violence).

Yeah, that's one of the sucky things about blogging. A lot of followers are basically just numbers in your count. I remember Asblackasobama, he was awesome. Well, I said it on FB, but I'll say it hear too, happy anniversary. And I'm sure if Macho Man Randy Savage were still with us today he would wish you another year of awesome blogging.

Baby Sister said...

Happy Anniversary. :) 2 years is a big feat. It drives me crazy to only get a handful of comments when I have more followers. Oh well. :) Congrats!!

Happy two year anniversary! Remember, it's the ones who comment who count. Now, where's the drinks?

Ms. A said...

"Happy Anniversary!"

Random blogs are the best blogs, congrats on your anniversary. You don't have to devote your whole life to the blog, but always check in to say hi from time to time!

Jeffrey Beesler said...

Alex is absolutely right about that. The ones who comment really are the ones who matter most.

Bouncin' Barb said...

Two Years? Wow, congratulations! That is remarkable. You should be proud of that and I am glad Mynx brought you to her blog otherwise I would have missed you!

Arlee Bird said...

I guess you and I started about the same time. My 2nd year blog anniversary will be coming up in September. We gotta find a way to get paid for doing this.

Congratulations!

I join you on many levels, not the least of which is finding a way to get paid for this so I could do it more intently and frequently.

Congats on the two years and I have been wondering what did happen to Blackasobama? I have heard nary a word.

Okay this comment rhyming must stop.

You were about to write a post on snausages...that's it!

LoneIslander said...

I feel the same way bro, a lot of my followers just dropped out out of the blue, I miss a lot of them. Gratz on lasting two years bro.

Bart said...

Happy belated second blogaversary! (And I guess an extremely belated first blogaversary.) I'm looking forward to the posts about sausage and hamsters!

Happy anniversary.

Also, I feel your pain. I don't know HOW people with thousands of followers do it. I have to hunt down every one of my followers myself - usually bribing them with sexual favors or coercing them with death threats.

Lemons Don't Make Lemonade said...

So, um. Follow me or I'll send yellow ninjas to your HOME.

Happy Anny!

Congrats Toast on your anniversary. You are one of the good guys in blog world, so just keep writing whatever makes you happy and no more going on random hiatus, kapeesh?

Congrats!
People come and people go (sometimes sadly so). A lot of things folks do to add followers, doesn't always add readers (or commentors).
