5th Blogoversary

At 10:39PM tonight, "Views From the Back Row" will officially be 5 years old! I started out with that awkward introductory post that we all have. Dipping my toe into unknown waters. Knowing that there's no possible way that anyone will actually read it.

In these past five years I've met 45 people whom I wouldn't have met otherwise, traveled to more places than I have in the 48 years prior, have had over 870,000 visitors, and seen more "things" than I ever could have imagined. I have seen scores of people come and go, and I've seen people who have stuck it out through thick and thin (including my very first commenter--what a shock THAT was!). There's been marriages, divorces, births, deaths, successes and failures. There's been a lot of changes, good and bad, over the years. Not much gets past the blogosphere!

So Happy 5th Blogoversary, VFtBR! Hope you're still here in another year. Because if you are, that means I am, and I think that's a good thing!

Happy Blogoversary old friend. I was curious, so looked at my blogs first post, April 2005, so that makes mine five years old this year too.

No presents just doesn't seem right. Want me to send you a picture of my tits?

Hsppy 5th Blogoversary 'n junk. Is 'Blogoversary' a real word or is it made up 'cause you're so cool and have your own dictionary?

Some times I wonder if newer bloggers (like me) have any idea what a HUGE accomplishment this is. I mean, *I* do ... of course ... but you know those other newer bloggers *giggle*

Yayyyyy for 5 years strong! you really have brought together a large group of people Os...more than you expected at first i'm sure. while it's taken a life of it's own on the hnt side, you are also very interesting to read. You are kind and helpful, friendly and funny too. I'm so glad this blog was pointed out to me back when I started out. So glad to know you. It's so cool that you've gotten to meet so many bloggers as well. too cool.

xoxo
