Another "Blogversary," Come And Gone.

I wouldn't have remembered, but [Venomous] Kate said something about reaching the five-year mark, and linked her first post. Here's mine, also from March of 2003 [March 5th, to be exact]. Hard times, those: this country had just invaded Iraq, and it was difficult-but-necessary to face up to the suffering that went along with having supported the war.

Long essays, lots of thought. And Kate and I, both blogging naked while drinking martinis late at night, back when I was making do with a dialup connection—and she lived farther West than I did.

Looking through my archives, it occurs to me that my writing was really, really freakin' dull back in those days. Like, boring boring.

("What makes you think things have changed?" I hear you ask. Well, nothing does, and maybe they haven't. But now I run shorter entries and more pix—also, I have video! That was a relative novelty just a few years ago.)

It's all good; thanks for your support. Send more money.

You haven't given up naked drunk blogging, have you? Say it ain't so!

Happy (belated) Blogiversary to you, too, my friend. Here's to many more years of mutual, inebriated nudity... and to you being the only person to whom I can say that without worrying that you'll laugh about how blogging has ruined my figure.

That's what's meant by "I'd hit that!" right? The Paypal button?

Well, you know--that's how I always take it. ;)

If only Eliot Spitzer would have known!

What a bargain.

Posted by: Attila Girl at March 10, 2008 09:08 PM

Eliot, we'll testify in your behalf if you hit that LMA Paypal button a half-dozen times or so. Hey, so you just hit the one at the Emperor's Club website just to feel good about yourself(Michelle Obama can back you up on that) when to your SURPRISE, some woman named Kristin shows up at your hotel room a few hours later. Who knew that privacy was so weak on the internet? It can happen to anyone! Pledge to get to work on that right away, and fight the forces that make such things possible. Namely, George Bush!

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
