So a bunch of us NARN guys got invited to meet with the Governor on Tuesday - all the members of the Northern Alliance of Blogs, plus John, Doug and Gary from Kennedy Versus The Machine, and the guys from Patriot Blog.
Nobody, naturally, was more surprised than I was. I've been blogging for (counts in head) 39 months now; I started back when people thought "blog" was something that Nick Coleman had after a bag of chalupas and a couple of double Gilbeys on the rocks. It amazes me, frankly, that this little hobby has developed to this point. Which is not to say that I haven't put in some time; I've written well over a million words in this blog.
So when a bunch of newbies - however much I like their blogs - start grousing about not getting invited to soirees like this, I gotta say; keep your perspective, kids. I can remember when blogging was a lonely hobby, back in the days before we were on the hotline from Karl Rove; back before the money flowed like Garrison Keillor's bile after another Republican win; back before bloggers went everywhere surrounded by hot chicks.
But hang in there, guys, for I say your day will come; sometime when we toast Nick Coleman's next exit from radio.
Which can't be that far away.Posted by Mitch at May 20, 2005 04:30 AM | TrackBack
