Happy Birthday To My Blog

by Venomous Kate

Electric Venom turns 6 years old today! Why, it seems like just the other day I was sitting at my laptop worried that I’d somehow break the internet if I pushed the wrong button and wondering if I’d get in trouble for typing “fuck” on the internet.

For the first time ever, I’m not going to celebrate this blogiversary by promising to stick around another 6 years. Frankly, when I look back at all the hours and days that have passed by unnoticed for having existed beyond the confines of my monitor, it makes me just a bit blog weary. Or maybe that’s constipation. Hard to say.

At any rate, thanks to all of my readers for making life online far more interesting over the past few years than the stuff that’s happened away from the computer. You keep doing what you do so well, and I’ll consider doing the same.

  1. How about five more years? Great having you around so don’t run off just yet!

  2. Happy Birthday, EV!

  3. VK,
    I found your blog quite a long time ago. I actually found it rather fun to read because it always seemed genuine and not the typical blog constructed persona screaming “look at me!”. You were normal and bitchy. And still are. I can remember showing your blog to a friend of mine when I was on the road visiting the Low Country and his only comment was “do NOT let my wife see that… she’ll claim that she’s just like everyone else…” Been reading ever since.

    Happy blogiversary.

  4. You were one of the first people to welcome me into blogblivion and I’ll never forget you for it. Happy anniversary, blog. And thanks for the time it takes to make it work, Kate.


  5. Happy Blogoversary! Six years… what is that in internet years??? LOL.

  6. Happy Birthday!! Congrats!!

  7. Happy Bday, Kate! Sure you may be six, but you’ve got the body of a four year old. Wait, did that come out wrong?

  8. thanks Kate. you were there when I started and have always been a pillar of strength when I was weak. and i’d like to think vice-versa. bestest wishes.

  9. You’re one of the main reasons I started blogging, and you’ve been an inspiration to me for years. 🙂 Happy Blog-day!

  10. w00t!

    Conga Rats!

    Not sure when I started reading you but it can’t possibly have been too long after that.

  11. Six years ago you scared the shit out of me.

    Now I like you lots, and only partly because you have great taste in shoes.

  12. Congratulations on a successful 6 years! Happy Birthday!

  13. Kate, you’ve made it worth every second. And you know I mean that.

    Happy Blogiversary!

    BTW…ya got another 6 in ya, dontcha? Yeah, I thought so.

  14. I’m thinking… no, probably not.

    Then again, I view blogging like drinking martinis and smoking: every morning I wake up with a nasty feeling and vow I’ll NEVER do it again. By that night, however, I just can’t seem to stay away.

    God, I wish I could quit you.
