One Year of Attempts

It was a year ago today that I began this blog; in blogospeak, it's my one-year blogoversery. To celebrate, I'll do what I did six months ago, and collect links to what I consider my best posts so far.

I think my single favorite post -- the one that really captures what, ideally, I want to do on this blog -- is On Being a Cracked Pot. I wish I had time for more posts like that (other writing projects take up the majority of my time.)

Apart from that, I'll go by categories.

As a nice little blogoversery present from fate, earlier today, for the first time, I randomly came across a link to one of my posts on a blog (i.e. not in a case where I solicited the link, know the blogger, or anything like that); it was here. A nice grace note for the day.

And oh, yes: it is also Bloomsday. A fine day to pick for my blogoversery, says I.

You were going to do wonders, what? Missionary to Europe after fiery Columbanus.... Rich booty you brought back...
