This is sort of a unique post. I had a lot of traffic last month, but then I needed to take a four week break from the internet and blogging with the death of my mother-in-law Johnnie Gonzales. Although there were a few opportunities to log on and post things here or there, the circumstances really made it impossible for me. There were a lot of times where I struggled with whether or not to give up on this hobby once again, forever this time. *laughs* For fans of comic books, I akin this whole thing to Spiderman and how many time ol' Peter Parker has shrugged off the costume and called it quits.
However, there are a few people who keep me posting here. Even when traffic goes from hundreds or thousands of hits a day to 20 or 30 (which is very disheartening but understandable when there's nothing new to see on the site), the readership of just a few people keep my interest in doing this and this website alive. That all being said, I'd like to take a moment to thank my friend Andrea who often comments under the moniker 'Agunn'. Not only does she physically threaten me when I don't post at least on thing a day, but she actively comments and sends e-mails. It's largely thanks to her that I'm still doing this now, at this very moment. I have always had big hopes for my website, and as I am currently going to college and taking art and english classes, I expect that over time, the tone of the website will change from being what it is now (essentially just a linkdump of shit I find interesting) to a place where I post original content, art and music I've created, and count more on a community of dedicated readers to help keep the blog constantly updated and relivant. That all being said, I really want to take a moment to thank Andrea for the time she invests in my website and her faith in me that I'll find interesting shit she can hopefully spread like the swine flu to others. A good swine flu though.
So yes, this post is for you Andrea. You rule. Just like the day I metcha, I knew you were somebody special and even though we rarely get to see each other anymore, I love you for being one of the raddest girls I've ever, ever met. Using the very scientific, asteriks based rating system I occasionally use for movies, I'm giving you a wopping ******. That's 6 when I've only actually calibrated my system to go up to 5. You are that awesome. Thank you for always coming back, even when it's slow.
