Happy Blogiversary!

Today marks the 2nd Anniversary of this little project of mine. What started as a catharsis has turned into something quite a little bit more. Go ahead and take a minute to pat yourselves on the back because you all are a large part of MC’s success. Now don’t go getting a big head…I’d still be doing it to retain some semblance of sanity, but it’s damn nice knowing someone else besides me, the Wife, and the ‘Rents give a shit about what I have to say here. So, with sincerity I hope can properly be measured in such an emotionless realm as the blogosphere…Thanks, kids.

I truly appreciate all the emails (which are on the rise…I get to them when I can, I swear!), tweets, comments, and general good karma I’ve gotten from the lot of you. There’s a couple of you I can do without, but I mostly ignore you or let the faithful tear you up (easier that way, you know).

As I close my 75 hour week and I can barely stand to keep the eyes open, I want to reaffirm my commitment to continuing writing. There’s more in the future and in different forms, but the core of what makes MC, well MC, will remain as long as my fingers work and your eyes have the desire to read profanity-laced drivel. I promise to continue my efforts to entertain and educate…not necessarily all at the same time, but you knew that already.

Two years ago, before I had any blogging experience and was pretty convinced it was something only Tweeners cared about; before I knew of that upstart medic, HM, and met virtual brothers/sisters in blue and all those that support them; before I knew of the power that blogs like ours can have, I never in a million years would have that we all would grow and change in such vast ways and come to the place we stand in today.

For the last two years, the blog has been a positive influence in my life. It has functioned to keep me productive in different ways and has made me feel like others have come to count on me, in whatever minuscule way, for a chuckle. And I’m only too happy to provide.

So, thanks again for the support, all. Couldn’t do it with quite as big a smile on my face without you.

  1. Happy Blogiversary…

    I went to Hallimark to buy you a card… but they don't carry Blogiversary cards… go figure! Someone needs to corner that market they'd made a mint…

    But in all seriousness thank you for sharing your stories with us, they are always good for a laugh (and the occasional cry!)I hope you have many more years of success!

    Ever faithful reader


  2. Congratulations on reaching this milestone! I look forward to reading many more of your interesting and educational blog posts for years to come. Best wishes!

  3. Two years, well done MC. You thank us for reading, for our comments and our support well as far as I can see that’s a two way street.
    Thank you for opening a door and sharing part of your life with us, that’s a big ask. And from a civilian point of view thank you for letting us see life from the other side of the citation pad. Police blogs certainly break down the barriers. It’s a privilege. May you never get tied of typing for I’m an avid reader.
    Thanks very much for the ride. Definitely looking forward to more.

  4. Congratulations on your Blogiversary! Thanks for the often needed mid-workday chuckle! Here's wishing you many safe years to come of amusing stops and stories to share with us!!

  5. Happy Blogiversary, MC! I found your blog just a little more than a week ago, and have become a fan. I've caught up with all your posts. Not only have I been educated, but I have been thoroughly entertained by your wit and great story-telling. Your blog has added to my deep appreciation for LEOs. Thanks! Keep up the great work and stay safe!

  6. Happy 2nd! Thank you for making this blog and keeping it going so faithfully. I remember the time when you were considering taking it down, and I'm incredibly glad that you didn't. I recommend your blog to all of the PD applicants that I meet and those who want to become motors themselves.

    Stay safe and happy scribbling! (And how funny is the word verification today? It's 'pocar'.)

  7. Happy 2nd and many more to come. So proud of you and you know why. Be safe out there!! Big hug for you, "the wife" and the junior MCs.

  8. Happy Anniversary! I'm one of the so-called "lurkers," but I've been happy to be reading you for almost as long as you've been around (at least when my own schedules permits, anyway).

    Congrats on the milestone, thank you for helping keep our streets safe, thank you for the smiles and humor, and keep up the GREAT work, all-around!

    Here's to another few years of MC!

  9. Congratulations on your 2nd blogiversary….
