10? Yes 10!  Not that my blog looks anything like Bo Derek - well, except for today. And Bo Derek graces my blog in her iconic role because nonamedufus turns 10 today. That's right. It was 10 years ago this month when I first waded into the blogosphere. I started out using the blog to update family and close friends on my battle with cancer. I'm happy to say that 10 years later not only is my blog still here but so am I.

Some of my friends weren't so lucky. And I can think of three blogging buddies in particular who passed on. Donnie Kingery of Beyond Left Field from Hattiesburg, Mississippi. Sandie Bigler, otherwise known as Quirkyloon I miss you guys a lot. Gone too soon as they say.

But I keep on keeping on. Over 3,000 posts. Over 1,150,000 page views - that's a lot of visitors.

But blogging just isn't the same as it used to be. At the height of my popularity as a humour blogger I'd generate 20-30 comments per post. Now I can count my commenters on one hand. Some days on one finger.

But hey, I still enjoy it. Although my blog is a little frayed around the edges with links that don't work and other weird things. And while most of my blogging buddies have shuttered their blogs in favour of Facebook, I'm still plugging away. And who knows for how much longer. We'll see.

Meanwhile I've got a movie to watch.

Forgot to mention I've outlive membership in several blogging collectives. HumorBloggerDot Com, Tribal Bloggers Studio30+ Alas they've all gone the way of the dodo bird.

Studio 30 too? Wow! You just keep chugging along while the rest of us fade away.

I miss the old Modblog group, great fun there.
And keep on blogging. I am not stopping until the real truth of the JFK assassination comes to light. (which means forever!!!)

LOTGK: Wow, you're a blast from the past. Good to hear you're still at it.

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.

Times Are So Tough...
