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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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 :)

  4. Hap­py Blo­giver­sary! I’ve been com­ing here now and then for a few years now and I’ve always enjoyed read­ing your posts, espe­cial­ly when I lived in Water­loo and felt con­nect­ed to the places you wrote about.

  5. hap­py blo­giver­sary Fir­da! I’ve been read­ing for awhile now I guess — I real­ly enjoy your writ­ing and I adore your pho­tog­ra­phy. I’m so glad that both you and Troy blog so that we can keep up over here. Hap­py blog­ging!
