It’s a Blogiversary!
It was 21 years ago (this past Saturday) that I posted my first ever, QueerJoe blog entry. Therefore, it’s a blogiversary.
When It’s a Blogiversary
Blogs are relatively new. Not many of them are over 25 years old. Because they simply didn’t exist that long ago. Short for weblog (I think), I only heard about them about 21 years ago when I knew I wanted to start one.
So traditions for a blogiversary are kind of unclear. Does it require cake?
I will say, that over the decades, I have truly loved the communities that have sprung up around QueerJoe. I have met some extraordinary people. And the things I’ve learned are innumerable. And the creativity and productivity I’ve documented over the years has been amazing. Having a whole cache of history and photos of the last 21 years of my life is a precious thing for me.
Just minutes ago, I was searching for a photo of Thaddeus and me that I need to post on Wednesday. That’s a very different kind of “versary”. And a very special one.
Hint: It calls for gifting rubies (traditionally).
I’m quite pleased to say that I’ve finished the latest NEMFKR Shawl and it came out quite well. At least it did in my less-than-humble opinion.
It ended up being about 60″ wide and 32″ tall and I’m quite pleased with it. I also started a new project.
This will eventually be the Anica Shawl in a fantastic yarn by The Verdant Gryphon called Bugga in colorway The Firefly Hunt. I’m not sure, but it appears their yarn is now only available in places like eBay.
