Personal Fifth

Kit·blog enters fifth year today

Good five or bad five, Cristian -Kit- Paul, Bucharest, 2007

Will the 5th be a good year? A bad one? Light, dark? Long, short? Thick, thin?

Past

For almost one year at the current address (kitblog.com), previously (since 2003) located on my .Mac account (homepage.mac.com/cpaul/iblog), this blog approaches 1000 posts—one freaking thousand?!?—and counts over 600 self-made photos. Thousands of comments (that—unfortunately—disappeared from the old location). Four years of blogging, some pretty good, one not so great and a platform change that felt more like starting over.

Thanks

Thanks for dropping by, folks.

While every visit makes me feel good, still, I'm doing my best to keep this blog a little pensive and away from being a middlebrow affair. Thank you for stopping by and reading it.

Thank you for subscribing to my feed. For me, this means that more than a couple of hundreds of you care about what I'll concoct next. Thanks.

Years don't mean much when a blog is dead. And with no comments, nor e-mails, it would be—I do appreciate each and every comment and e-mail (yes, even when I'm too busy to reply). Thank you for sparing the time to share a thought.

Thank you for linking here and for spreading the word—this turns a blog from personal entertainment into something else, something much bigger. The perfect example would be the anti-SDPR's design law protest, when blogs and massive linking turned into a formidable power and triggered mainstream media responses in the country and abroad. Also, I'm grateful for being listed in your blogrolls. Thank you.

Future

Que Sera, Sera / Whatever will be, will be / The future's not ours, to see / Que Sera, Sera / What will be, will be.

Congratulations!

My blog just turned 5 too, though I forgot to celebrate. So I'd rather celebrate yours!

Kit:

Thank you all.

Graft, I'll try. But—you know—Que Sera, Sera...

Alexandre, I have no clue how internet will look like in 2057. I hope it won't be run by evil robots.

Maktaaq, this blog only turns 4 (entering the fifth blogging season :) so I can only bow in front of you.

Kit:

Wow, when it rains, it pours. Thank you, people!

Thanks Felipov, but let's put things is perspective here: I'll never be as popular as a cute, hugging Cephalopoda with a crazy name.

Cristi, I channeled my Flickr photo-stream feed into the main blog feed—I hope that'll help a bit. Thank you.

Bogdana, thanks—I hope you don't mean a pro blogger; at the present level of blogging haughtiness I'd starve in a week.

Thank you, Gulbin. The mechanics of a blogging year is simple: blog while Earth goes around the Sun once. That's it.

Thank you, Dan. Just a quick question: um, do those two leverage or cancel each other? Are those sentiments additive or subtractive? :)

I've just pointed out your blog to a friend of mine who is a psychologist. She was very interested in a professional meeting with a 5 years old blogger!

Dan, is it that bad, doc?

Gupi, two is just enough. Thank you, old pall.

Thank you Paul—although that's a lot of work. Even bloggers retire, don't they?

Actually, she is fascinated by the prospect of understanding the psychological needs and motivations of a “senior” blogger :)

gulbin:

dan petre, what's the point of identifying the "psychological needs and motivations"? the more he's natural the merrier the readers are!
dar cu calul ce-ai avut? (ref. prizzi cat). just kidding
