Bloviating Zeppelin: June 19, 2004: FOUR YEARS

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

June 19, 2004: FOUR YEARS


I have been on Blogger for 4 years now. I began this blog on June 19, 2004.

I have managed to survive longer than 98% of the blogs extant.

In 2004 some major Life-Changing events occurred to me: a longstanding relationship ended, and I embarked upon a political road that I currently traverse today; this new current also managed to enable me to acquire my now-wife.

Life required that I let loose a mental, physical and fiscal drain because, after all, Life is quite short; my current wife is nothing but a mental and physical BLESSING to my Life. Imagine that.

At a time when I sought something solid onto which to cling, I not only created but enabled and proffered to the Blogosphere my Bloviating Zeppelin blogsite.

I threw my unexpurgated thoughts and emotions into the Blogosphere. I had no idea what would return. I literally bared my soul. And continue to do so today.

I kept writing for myself, not knowing if there was a readership developing or not.

A techno-idiot, I have somehow managed to claw myself over more technologically-advanced blogs.

And I have naught but you, my dear reader, to thank -- though my readership clearly challenges itself and some will recede and subsume but some will prevail.

Certainly, I'll try in my own clumsy and thick way to build a greater readership because, after all, I'm an admitted HTML idiot. My thanks to RB and TF for their techno-help. On the other hand I'm finding that many of my prognostications, due to my historical perspective, have come to fruition.

No matter where we go, no matter what we forecast, I hope you will all continue to read my blog.

And, of course, Great Thanks to my The Usual Suspects contingent!

AND BZ, the blog world is much better off having YOU in it.

Keep on keeping on my friend and remember; some of us use your blog as a thesaurus. You always find a way to work in some words I have never heard and it keeps me busy. LOL

You'll be around a lot longer on the web when you bail on the losers you call "friends."

Congratulations, BZ!

It certainly would be interesting to know who "Anonymous" is. I join you in the "heavy sigh." If someone is going to leave a comment like that then that someone should have the courage to stand behind his convictions by showing his name.

I echo Mark's sentiment. :)

Mine will be three in October. It's fun and we probably don't make a difference, but one day . . . perhaps.

ANON-Y-MOUSE is probably one of the "Really brave" morality policeman of the net. Either way BZ sorry bud I must have left the door open and a cockroach came in.

You are above the fray and I respect that a great deal. Enjoy.

Congratulations on running a successful, and consistent blog. You've been at it longer than I, as I only first started paying attention to blogs during the '04 elections (Hugh Hewitt), and only started thinking I could do this too, in mid 2005.
