I know Mala wrote a blog this morning about our 10 year anniversary. The blog has opined on many events through the years, including the 2008, 2012, 2016 Election cycles, Sandy Hook, Trayvon Martin, Occupy Wall Street, Government Shutdown.
Kenny Pick over at Turn Up The Night
turned his entire show this evening into a celebration of our blog. That was awesome of him to do that, and lots of fun. In preparation for the show, I went through a LOT of my past blogs and took notes of the ones I thought were really special. Naturally, with all the fun chaos, we never got to them.
So - with that in mind, here is a 10 year retrospective of my favorite blogs (the ones that I wrote)...Whither Now?
: There's no looking backReDeclaration of Independence
: Modifications from one King George to another...We Are the Change
: A song that I have yet to recordAnd the Wall(st) Came Tumbling Down
: The crash of 2008It Takes a Planet
: Going from it takes a village in steps up to the whole earthWhite Like Me
: pretty much what you think it isIn Defense of Big Government
: Socialism works for some thingsPAC Man - A Story For Our Times
: Investigative journalism!Romancing the Gun
: Post Sandy Hook
I had forgotten that I had "regular" blog posts like the Friday Fun stacks and Good News Friday (happier news bits during the Bush administration - not unlike Fluffy Friday nowadays). I did the Science Stacks blogs, and "Under the Radar" (news stories not covered in the MSM).
I laughed at some of my more humorous or literary blog titles, like "Floaters in the Punch Bowl", "A Flower Blooms in the Desert", "What's the Matter with Arizona?","DOMA Arigato", "RBIs, not Home Runs", "Groping Grandma", "The Peanut Gallery is Nuts", "Deja Voodoo Economics", and "Beating a Dead Gift Horse in the Mouth"
