I started this blog exactly one year ago today.
I started it because Blogger has this jacked up setting where you have to actually be a Blogspot blogger to leave a comment, and Bridgette had this setting turned on. (It’s not her fault, she didn’t know. She’d only been blogging for a few days herself.) Of course, I needed to leave a comment because I had something terribly witty to say, so I picked the name “Sarah and the Goon Squad” for my non-blog. The next day my non-blog went live.
This June, I live in Virginia and my kids are running and climbing stairs and telling me things like “I do it myself”. (and Gabe and I are off playing drinking games with fans.
Last June, I was averaging 11 hits a day. Two days ago my site meter hit 30,000.
This year I am also a finalist in page’s Shitty Mix Tape Challenge, so if you haven’t already – go check out the top five playlists. They’re all pretty bad. But only one has Jordy. (Shut up, Big Dubya).
Anyway, thank you everyone for stopping by and reading and commenting. It sounds stupid, but I really feel like blogging keeps me sane. It is a very cathartic outlet for me in a world where I don’t get much other grown up interaction. Thanks for hanging around.
