It’s another Funny Blog Friday with my fellow bloggers and it just so happens to be my 1st Blogiversary!
What better way to spend it than to be purposely funny on a glorious Friday?
Well first off, this blog has been through a lot. Her first year of life was a rough one and she should probably seek therapy multiple times a week for all the shit I put her through. It’s had like, a gazillion names! It’s like when you adopt a four year old cat named Sphinx and you’re like, “That’s a horrible name. You should be named Arthur instead.” So you start naming him Arthur and he gets all confused when you yell at him for kicking his kitty litter in the hallway because he’s like, “Who the hell is Arthur?” I can barely get my life together, let alone know what I want in a blog. I’m sure it’s kind of like what speed dating is like.
This blog was originally called The Corner Spot Blog because I couldn’t think of anything else clever enough that stuck. I blogged about my travels cross country and writing and stuff, and I was actually falling asleep writing my posts. I needed a change. I decided to just change it to my name because it’s easier that way, and then I moved to Blogger because it’s free and everyone loves free stuff. I started making various blogger friends but I got ZERO traffic on blogger. Mindy Kaling stole my title, “Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me?”
I felt left out because everyone was on WordPress. It’s like when you show up to a party and everyone is already best friends with each other. And not in drunken way, but in a way that seemed like they had known each other for years and that’s just plain awkward. I casually crept into conversations, laughed hysterically as if I knew the inside joke the whole time, and then everyone walked away.
I’m being slightly dramatic, but long story short, Blogger wasn’t as fun. It wasn’t until February that I took a good long look in the mirror and said, “You’re fabulous! But only if you switch to WordPress.” So that’s what I did. The blog was still my name but just recently I said, “Hey, good things are happening now. I’m getting a couple of publications rolling in. I’d like to finish my book by the end of the year. Do I really want my only way of contact to be through my super cool blog where I swear a lot and talk about magical hair products, my inability to do math, and my fast-aging body? No.” So I changed the title of this blog to You’re Fine, which is a bit ironic since I’m suggesting that my blog have a few therapy sessions.
I can just picture her now, wearing that Reptar t-shirt and jeans, tapping her chipped fingernails together and nervously saying, “I just don’t know anymore. I feel like Jessie wants me to be someone that I’m not, and I just can’t live up to her standards. She makes it impossible! You should hear the horrible things she says to me sometimes when she’s angry. It’s borderline abuse.” I then made a more professional page for me so that I can separate my multiple personalities.
That’s the history of my blog and the first full year of it’s many existences.
