Airhead that I am, it took DD Degg to remind me that I have been doing this blog for a year now. My inaugural post was on October 5 2005, so I’ve already overshot the mark by a bit.
The blog has been a lot of work, but it has been more than repaid by your comments, criticisms and information submissions. Your participation is the main reason I do the blog – I love to hear what you folks have to say – both fellow researchers and fans, and the occasional ‘outsider’ who chances across the site (like the relative of Clare Briggs who just contacted me with a lovely note yesterday).
It has also been a wonderful little daily break from what has been a long, hard year for me personally and professionally. Sometimes the hour a day I spend scanning and writing up blog entries may have been the only thing keeping me from going bonkers.
So here’s to another year of miscellaneous ramblings through the dusty corridors of comic strip history. I hope you’ll come along for the ride, and be sure to tell a friend or two. The more the merrier! And to celebrate the anniversary I hereby grant myself a day off. See you on Thursday!
