It's a day to celebrate! It was two years ago, November 6, 2006, that Kurious Kitty's first post appeared! It wasn't more than a line or two, but I had just managed to set up the site and was still getting used to the idea of blogging regularly. Now, I seem to be able to do a post in my sleep!
I've posted at least twice on Spam--not the unwanted emails, but the meat-in-a-can. Several times on haiku. And more times than I care to think about on baseball, including one about Red Sox coffins!
If you have some topic you'd like me to explore in a post, please use the comments function. I rarely receive comments! It makes me feel unread!
I'll tie up this part of today's post with the mention of a new book on blogging. I'll include it as a kind of threat--comment on my blog or I'll read this book! Problogger: Secrets for Blogging Your Way to a Six-Figure Income by Darren Rowse [006.7 ROW]. I like blogging for the library, but when someone waves a 6-figure income in front of me, I have to weigh my options carefully!
You may have heard about a national holiday being celebrated today in Kenya. If not, here's an NPR piece on Barack Obama's father's ancestral home and the way the Kenyans are rejoicing in the news of our new president.
To learn more about Barack Obama and his father, look for Dreams from My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance [B OBA also available in AB/CD B OBA].
Have a great day! Eat a piece of cake for me, and, President Obama!
