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 MCâ€™s success. Now donâ€™t go getting a big headâ€¦Iâ€™d still be doing it to retain some semblance of sanity, but itâ€™s damn nice knowing someone else besides me, the Wife, and the â€˜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 blogosphereâ€¦Thanks, kids.
I truly appreciate all the emails (which are on the riseâ€¦I get to them when I can, I swear!), tweets, comments, and general good karma Iâ€™ve gotten from the lot of you. Thereâ€™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. Thereâ€™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 educateâ€¦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.
