Two years ago (on another site) I started something which would eventually become this blog. At the time, it was nameless, and came with a disclaimer:

"DANGER: Reading of this journal may cause drowsiness. Do not operate heavy machinery."

The journal started as a way for me to give a glimpse into the everyday life of me (narcissistic much?) -- weather reports of my walk to work, what Old Time Radio show I listened to on my cheapie mp3 player (I still yearned for the iPod I would get nearly a year later and never, never shut up about), and other such daily drivel. I gradually expanded my subject base as I realized it was a tool for improving my writing, something entirely debatable at this stage. I still don't blog about work, much as I might like to. I'm saving that for my book, to be published two days after I retire.

Anyway... I moved that journal to livejournal (because I'm 12, and myspace hadn't been invented yet) for a few months before the final move to this location, where I reposted some earlier entries.

Today, not much has changed, if you don't count the birth of my second child as blog-fodder. (What some people won't do!) Except, I hope, I'm slightly more entertaining than I used to be. And if I'm not? Don't tell me. Please.

Happy Blogiversary to me!

PS Happy Robbie Burns Day! To honour this, expect a new edition of Scotch Watch to surface very shortly.

UPDATE: The Scotch Blog has a veritable plethora of Burns links here.

Happy 2nd blogaversary! Take yourself out to a nice place and have a good meal. Most people don't make it past 1.

Perhaps you'll get a blogiversary present in the next week or so.

You know somewhere, someone's head just exploded at the use of the word "blogiversary". (And I say, "POO ON THEM!")

Awesome, dude. Keep it up.

Happy Blogiversary - keep the scotch flowing and no one gets hurt. (Well, apart from the hangovers the next morning, but that's something to worry about later.)

Happy Blogiversary!! We too shall be raising a glass in the honour of Mr. Burns. However we'll be passing on the Haggis.

(I totally posted this earlier today and it's not here, weird.)

Happy Blogiversary to you! Or, if you prefer, Happy Blogthday!

You're fantastic, and I hope there are many more Blogthdays in your future.

And may someone else's head assplode at "blogthday." Whee!

happy two years, and sween: i think i'm the one whose head exploded that the term "blogiversary".

i still want the shirt that reads, "no one is interested in your blog". it rocks.

as an aside, that's the only thing i wish i hadn't deleted my original blog for: i am coming up now on four years.

Happy blogiversary, as someone who read your original blog as well as this one I can say it's been fun.

I don't think my head exploded over the word blogiversary but I just might have thrown up a bit in my mouth...

my god you are popular. I'm proud to say I was here from the beginning and will soon start a blog discussing the intricacies of this blog.

-- doing my part to bring the internet full circle

Yeah! Happy Blogiversary!

My own head my splode from all the comments today. Thanks, everyone.

And don't listen to brianna or the expat -- what they remember is probably somebody else.

Sween and chrstine: I knew I couldn't have made that word up. Sad, but true. Blogthday? That's pure Stacy, and totally copyrightable.

Hey Mike, Happy Blogiversary! I'll tip my bottle of Kahlua Mudslide in your honor tonight.
