Life is a really hard game. The pieces keep falling out of those teeny little cars!

Happy Birthday to Me

It was sort of by accident that I came into the blogging world. A dear friend, linked as "Big Bro" on my sidebar, thought my Yahoo screen name (Stephalumpagus) was quite amusing. It was a name given to me by my dearest Naked Native, and Big Brother told me to create a blog just so I could put Stephalumpagus in the URL.

I told him I didn't think it was a great idea--I mean, what in the world would I say on a blog? And who would read it? He suggested I post on my favorite dinosaur or something of that nature. So, being bored, I created this blog. My first post is about my favorite dinosaur.

Of course, Big Brother was the only person who read it. I continued to post randomly on subjects such as macaroni and the smell of burnt vacuum. I told a few of my other friends to go read my blog, and a couple did, but it mostly became a venue for me to entertain myself.

Then the Native flew out to Utah for the EG Conference (which I'm going to this year!). He met a bunch of people like AtP, Samantha, Darrin, the Baker's Son, and he told me all about them. It was a few days later that he created his blog, with my link at the top. I started getting visits from more people, and I visited their blogs as well. I recognized AtP's and Samantha's blogs right away from the stories the Native had told me, so I began read theirs and many many others.

And that's how I made my way into the Queerosphere. Since then, I've met a lot of people from blogland. It's been absolutely delightful. So happy birthday to me!!! If you read my blog and haven't commented, please do! I'd love to hear from you.

Wow, let me be the first to comment with a "Happy Birthday!" Albeit, 'tis late -- I hope you will forgive me... even though we really don't know each other... none-the-less, a 'Happy Birthday!' should never be late!
