Today mark my 9th Blogiversary. I registered the domain Kitta.net nine years ago today and have been blogging sporadically ever since.
Here are some Lego themed cyber cupcakes to celebrate the event.
Eight years ago I registered the domain Kitta.net and created a blog that I assumed would only be read by a few friends and a random person from Sweden who was bored late one night and submitted 'Australian girl' in Google. My assumption was wrong.
Over the years I've amassed a decent amount of visitors and forged friendships with some amazing people. I've blogged about those who've helped and inspired me in previous entries, but I've never really thanked them. This is for you...
I hope you all enjoy these cyber heart cupcakes I prepared earlier.
Today marks my 7th Blogiversary. Seven years ago, on July 18th 2002, I registered Kitta.net and started blogging about random events in my life. I celebrated this significant occasion by drinking bubbles with my beloved Tahlia and taking silly photos using my sexy new Macbook Pro.
Today marks my 6th Blogiversary. Six years ago, on July 18th 2002 BSC, I registered my domain Kitta.net and started blogging. It's hard to believe I've been blogging for so long and received nearly four million unique hits.
But this isn't my first time I've blogged. Oh no.
Prior this blog I had a Teen Open Diary from 2000 to 2002. For those of you who know what that is, you'll be cringing or laughing. For those of you that don't know what it is, you'll be trying to Google it and are probably better off not knowing. TOD closed down years ago and the domain is now home to spam links. I decided to track it down my TOD via the internet time machine.
At the time I was teenager, working as a model and studying design. The majority of my posts were about my experiences in the fashion industry, which would have be interesting if I applied proper spelling and didn't complete every quiz I found. It featured poems from my boyfriend, pointless rants and forwarded email jokes. I posted riveting entries entitled "I wasn't gonna write but...", "I have so much to write...", "...and make you moan the ABC's in spanish", "Some things have happened", "My day was pretty good", "10 cookies, a piece of pizza & some M&M's", "Boredness, hornyness & kittas gentlemans club", "Always a bride, never actually married", "Long time, no me typing crap into this diary...", "Doggie style & Things that piss me off", "Does this taste funny to you?" "Freedom of X-rated stuff" and "Gutter sluts and Lush." I also provided some code advice for fellow TOD users, "Kitta's guide to linking in TOD" was quite popular, while "Kitta's guide to Html Basics in TOD" and "More of Kitta's guide to html" provided great insight into HTML. Everyone was so amazed by "Kitta's guide to posting a picture in TOD" and "Why your pictures wont show in your TOD" that I probably should have won a Nobel prize for my work.
Thankfully, none of those entries were indexed, neither was my terrible first attempt at a website on a free hosting site - we're talking black and magenta with comic sans. Sexy.
I went through my Kitta.net archives today and picked a few of my favourite blog posts to mark the occasion...
- Paused - The one about my Grandmother
- Leet Wow Hacker - The one where I own a kid
- Stop Trolley Thief - The one where my trolley was stolen
- SuperShadow or SuperStupid? - The one where I owned SuperShadow
- Two Cops & Me In A Towel - The one with two cops and me in a towel
- My McDonalds Milkshake - The one with two girls and their milkshake theory
- One Boring Sunday - The one where we blew up the garage
- No Cookie For Me - The one with the Subway guy
- On Behalf Of Firefox - The one where I tried to sell Firefox to a telemarketer
- Emailing England - The one where my Mother tried to email England
- 2008, 2007 and 2005 prediction series - The ones where I predict the sarcastic future
Here's to another year of blog posts about random moments of my life.
Today is my Blogiversary, I have been blogging at kitta.net for five years. Some would say it's a milestone to have been around since BS (before spam) and 0.71, but in the days leading up to this milestone WordPress started randomly switching back to it's default layout. I think I have fixed it, I say 'think' because every other time I thought it was fixed the switching soon returned. For now, it seems to have stopped being a theme switching zombie.
I wonder if five blog years is the equivalent to fifteen human years, and the theme switching is the emerge of an emo blogeenager of doom. Unbeknownst to me, my blog is planning to have a party on my server when I'm away - It will invite all the cool dotcom's, trash the root directory and some drunk site will throw up on the backups after drinking the beer that digg.com brought. Then my blog will ping drunk around the net with it's friends until 4am, knocking over inboxes left and right, and DOSing the crazy cat ladies blog. To cap off the night, it'll hear from dasbecca.com that gtmcknight.com totally doesn't want to take it to the bloggies, and start blogging about the black abyss that is its blog soul.
Alas, I am the admin, and once I login my blog will totally be grounded from trackbacking and be made to dump the cache every morning until it shows some respect.
