Four years ago today, I was sitting in my office working the most boring job of my life.Â I don’t know why, but I decided right then and there to start a blog.Â I didn’t really know what it was going to be about or if anyone was even going to read it.Â It was orginally called Mike’s Bloggity Blog Blob and was a play on words from Sex and The City’s Carrie Bradshaw when she said she was “Drunkity, Drunk, drunk.”Â It was four years ago today and I can hardly believe it!
2804 blog posts later, today is Mike’s Bloggity Blog’s blogaversary! Wow!Â Four years!Â That is a degree in blogging!Â Do they even have those yet?Â They should, I would be an awesome Dean…okay fine, assistant professor. Assistant to the professor.Â I would at least be something.
Either way, I just wanted to take moment to say thank you to anyone that has ever read the blog.Â Even if you’ve only read it once.Â Even if you read it because you hate it.Â Even if you are related to me and you are terrified that I’m going to write something about you. Either way, thank you.Â Thanks for coming by, thanks for leaving comments and thanks for telling your friends.
I’m so proud that this blog has become a place that supports Canadian entertainment.Â Sometimes I get confused because we are such a patriotic country, yet we find it so easy to dump on our own entertainment industry.Â I don’t always love our shows, movies or music, but I always respect them.Â I hope this blog is an indication of that. I hope you find this blog a place to learn about great new music or a hilarious TV show.
Being a writer is one of the coolest things in the world.Â I honestly never thought it was possible and now I get to do it each and every single day.Â For a guy that has been bald since high school, I feel so lucky.
So celebrate the blogaversary as you wish!Â My suggestion would be to eat a McLobster while watching Being Erica with a nice cool Molson 67.Â I’m still in Chicago, so to you a raise a slice of Deep Dish Pizza and say thanks again!
