This here blog turns three today. With an average of two to three posts a week since its inception, I feel like celebrating!
I was going to do a retrospective, but I usually do those at year’s end, so I won’t, but please wander back though the archives and see how she has grown. Tonight I’m going to attempt to bake a cake, and try not to burn the computer when we sit around it to sing Happy Blogiversary.
Thank you for all the comments and messages via Twitter and Facebook already. If you feel like it, let me know what your favourite post is. I’m rather curious. And thank you so much to the readers who have been with me this whole time; and to the readers who interact, comment, and also buy my print work when I mention it – short stories, articles etc. You are so appreciated. It’s been great getting to know you and I hope you stick around.
I was just thinking, too, how much I LOVE blogging.
So now, to celebrate in typical LiteraryMinded style:
+ John Turturro on Beckett (there’s a lot of good Beckett-related stuff on YouTube, if you’re interested):
And this post wouldn’t be complete without a ‘partying’ Bill Murray:
Coming soon: Elif Batuman ‘responsive’ interview; review of Joel Magarey’s Exposure; and a link to a guest post I’m doing for The Gum Wall on Kafka’s ‘In the Penal Colony’.
If you catch this today and want to follow the cake-making, I’ll tweet the results, as I’ve only ever, um, made about two disastrous cakes in my life.
