Holy crap! I’ve been so busy with life that I totally forgot that I started this little experiment in egocentric rambling back on December 2nd, 2001. Not that I did a lot with it that month, but that’s when it officially started which means Stupid Evil Bastard is now, officially, 8 years old.
Had you told me at the time that almost a decade later I’d still be finding stuff to write about I probably would’ve laughed. I’m ADD. I have a hard time finishing all the video games I own. Yet here I am still plugging away. Sure, I tend to go in phases where I’m not as active as I am at other times and what I blog about tends to also go in phases, but I’m still banging on the keyboard when something catches my attention.
What’s even more amazing to me is the fact that there are so many people that drop by daily to see what nonsense I’m carrying on about at the time. I’ve heard from a lot of people I’d never have imagined would find my rantings worth following and even been lucky enough to meet a few of you.
I did come close to giving it up a couple of times and there are periods when I haven’t been able to come up with something to write about that I revisit the possibility. Right about then I’ll read something that pisses me off and I am off and running once more. I can’t promise you that I’ll make it to the full 10 year mark, but we’re starting on our ninth year so it’s looking like a good possibility.
Thanks for checking in on me over the last eight years. It wouldn’t have been as much fun without you.
