Happy Birthday to TotAM!!

I completely forgot that today is the 6th anniversary of my blog!!

I've been doing this 6 years...This is post 1533!  There are very few things in my life I've continued for this long... Honestly, if you'd asked me 6 years ago if I'd still be writing here, I'd have said "not bloody likely!" Yet here I am...

Of course a lot has changed in the last 6 years. Many, if not most of the blogs that I followed 6 years ago and inspired me to start doing my own thing, have gone silent. Some sit quiet, mothballed, waiting to be reactivated. Others remain only as dead links, sites nuked by their owners. A few have become infested by bots and squatters. (Sounds like a post-apocalyptic setting, doesn't it?) New ones have been built, and many of those have suffered the same fates. Yet the community of bloggers and gamers still seems to be going strong, and thank Gygax for that!

Will I still be here in another 6 years? At this point? Who knows? I don't seem to have run out of things to say, even when I avoid talking about the latest tempest in a teacup! If anything, it's more a lack of time to read and write all the things I want to. I'm still working on the second half of my thoughts on Blue Rose for example, and that's just one of over 20 blog posts sitting in draft format. So I will continue to write, game, and share it all here!

  1. Congratulations! Keep on rolling (the dice). You just reminded me that I made my first blog post 4 years ago yesterday.
