The Monscooch Blog Is One Year OldMay 27, 2008 at 10:30 pm | Posted in The Blog And I | 11 Comments
Today marks the one year anniversary of the day I started this blog. Today is also the day that Batman first appeared in Detective Comics Number 27 (which is, suprisingly enough, missing from my awesome comic collection). That means that Batman will from now on become synonymous with this blog. Some of things that have happened to me and the blog over the last 366 days include:
- Being spoken of on national radio a few times
- Mentioned by RTE 2 for some reason
- My movies were shown on ABC News
- A combined 600,000 views for my YouTube movies
- This blog has been linked to by some of my absolute favorite blogs.
- Long-listed for an Irish blog award
Thanks to all those who’ve supported this site by linking, commenting and visiting on a daily basis. I’ve got some cool stuff planned out and, copyright issues withstanding, I can’t wait to show them off. In the next year, I’ll hopefully have:
- My own radio program featuring my own version of Nob Nation except mine would be funny. Oh, that’s right, I went there.
- RTE 2 advertisements for my latest chocolate sprinkled banana cereal
- ABC News feature dedicated to this blog presented by Andy Griffith.
- 600,000 YouTube users creating music videos dedicated to my awesomeness includinga song about Monscooch to the tune of Footloose
- Linked to by every blog ever created (including Kanye West over time)
- Hopefully shortlisted and actually nominated for an Irish blog award.
Sure, I’m aiming high but that’s just how I roll. With Rapture Ponies recently retiring, I have to be twice as good. I may have made some crazy promises to deliver cool features before but I really mean it this time. I’m utilizing the amazing abilities of my new 24″ iMac, my crazy imagination (once compared to that of Leonardo Da Vinci had he fallen on his head many times) and an army of flying monkeys at my disposal for some reason. They may not have much purpose for someone in charge of a blog, but their waistcoasts and fedoras are so darn cute.
