Our Blogiversary

It's today! Our first post here at the cafe was one year ago, with C.S. doing the honors. We were inspired by Gauss over at Gauss Pontificates, who remains our patron canine and mentor.

We had no idea how addictive blogging would be.

We never dreamed how often we would say to each other, "You should blog that."

We thought we were the only people who were pretty darn obsessive about books, bookstores and reading the prizewinners.

We weren't aware that challenge reading even existed.

We never expected that most of our real life friends--those we dared to tell about our little venture--would be so incredibly uninterested in knowing what we've been up to. (Kudos to those of you who relate to us in both worlds!)

We didn't know that there were so many smart, creative, funny, and just plain nice people out there in the blogging world, or that having bloggy friends could be so rewarding.

It's been a 365-day blast. Thanks for making us so welcome!


  1. Congratulations!! Isn't it funny how you can connect with so many folks you've never met and underwhelm your friends and neighbors all at the same time? LOL.

  2. Hula, you put it in a nutshell, it is weird weird weird the demographic of who doesn't read.

  3. What can I say? We are so much worse in person.

  4. I missed it - happy blogiversary!


Talk to me! I love external validation.
