I’m so bad at Birthdays

I fall into the typical male stereotype of not being very good at remembering dates. It’s not that I really forget, I just loose track. Thankfully, my wife doesn’t mind all that much and I do manage to remember the big ones (her birthday, our wedding anniversary, etc.). Though I did miss the 10-year anniversary of when we first got together earlier this month. But I digress.

Of much more importance (OK, of much less importance) is that I in fact missed the birthday (or anniversary or blogday – I’m not sure the correct term) of this blog earlier this month. It was 4 years ago in early February that I first started throwing reviews that I’d written on a message board up on this blog for no other reason than to put them in one place and see what happened. There weren’t many SFF blogger/reviewers out there at this time and those that were around often hadn’t embraced the blog format or become as closely tied with message boards and the wider internet fandom as exists now. So, I was a pioneer of sorts – not the first wave and probably not even the second wave, but the wave just before it became the cool thing to do. And at 4 years old, this blog is relative ancient among the fan/reviewer blogs that we all know and love today.

There’s not really anything else to say – I’m not going to say anything profound and I’m not going to go all nostalgic. Heck, it’s only a 4th anniversary, which doesn’t any mean much. So, back to work for me and I hope you enjoy your February.

Many happy returns Neth, or should that be many happy reader returns? Either way congratulations!

Congratulations on four years. I'm only on two months. I think - I'm not good at remembering dates either!

TSS is only six weeks old and I already feel long in the tooth. A blog going on four years and still as strong and original as Neth Space is a lesson to all us bloggers. Congrats, mate!

Thanks all! It's been a great 4 years and I expect the next 4 for will be even better.

Congratulations Ken! Four years is a long time blogging.

Next four years even better? Now you're raising the bar sky high! :) I'm sure you can do it though!

Hey, happy anniversary! I hit 5 this past January. Hard to believe so much time has passed so quickly. Glad to have you in the community and here's hoping for many, many more blog anniversaries.

Never mind dude, I forgot my own birthday a few years ago and I'm a twin. A friend wishing me happy birthday reminded me. My sister was not impressed in the least.
