happy blogiversary

to us, skippy the bush kangaroo!

long-time readers of this space may know that it has been our tradition to re-post our very first post on our blogiversary, for reasons known only to our faulty memory.

however, blogger has decided for some strange reason to cut all our archived months in half, so we are no longer able to access any july archive before about the 17th or so for each year.

thusly we are unable to re-create our first post, either out of memory or pixels. (blogger! you get what you pay for!)

either way, we've been at this blogging thing for about 8 years now, and have enjoyed every one of those years, save one.

a big thanks to our co-bloggers, a list of whom you can find in our left right-hand side bar. and a huge, huge thanks especially cookie jill.

a big thanks to all the folks to who link to us.

and a big thanks, as always, to you, our dear readers.

Try setting your archives to weekly.I was having the same problem and that fixed it. posted by cjg of eroticalee

Having recognized early on the potential for losing blog posts due to Blogger ass-hattery, I started creating all my blog posts in MS Word, where I can archive them in sequence. Cutting and pasting is not that big a deal, although I do have to strip out an awful lot of extraneous code. Even if Blogger removes (or blocks access to) Frieddogleg, the only thing I've lost is an Internet address.

Eight years is really impressive. Congratulations! And my appreciation to all of your co-bloggers. (If you're the big roo, are they under-roos?)

Wowee, a lot of us are coming up on 8! We should all get together in a couple years and have a big blowout once we reach double-digits. :) Happy belated blogiversary!
