10th Blogiversary!


10 years ago today, I posted my first blog post under the Weblog Wannabe moniker. We at Casa Troy and Firda are celebrating this 10th blogiversary by, uh, not doing much.

I'm also feeling a little depressed because yesterday during an eye exam with an optometrist I was diagnosed with glaucoma. I don't have tunnel vision yet so hopefully it's still in its early stage. We'll find out for sure once I undergo the field of vision test, scheduled for April, on the day after my birthday. Excellent timing, eh? Going blind is one of my biggest fears. Glaucoma's nickname is "the silent thief of vision." See why I'm freaking out? I pretty much live to share what I see. That's why I blog. That's why I take pictures.

Anyway, not really in a celebratory mood today but I'd like to call today the Weblog Wannabe Reader Unlurking Day! According to Feedburner, I have over 500 readers but my comment count seems to disagree with it. So if you feel like cheering me up a bit, leave a comment. Let me know how long you you've been reading. It'll make my day!

    I’ll post first. I’m not real­ly a lurk­er — though I’ve been read­ing your blog since around 2001 or so. So I’ve been with it for a while :)

    Hap­py Blo­giver­sary!

    Hap­py Blo­giver­sary! I’ve been fol­low­ing your blog for about five years now — almost as long as I have known about blogs. I can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring :)
