Let's Start From The Very Beginning.....

A Very Good Place To Start!

On this date, one year ago, way back in 2006, a lonely Infidel started a blog with nothing more than a few fart jokes and a dream. True to a lifelong rebellious nature, she refused to start her very first blog entry with the typical,"Well, here I am entering the blogosphere," or the trite, "Welcome to my first blog. I don't know what to write about." No, she remained utterly unpredictable in her writings until one year later, on the very same day, in 2007, when she blogs about her own ONE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!
Yeah, it's predictable and common but I couldn't let January 1st pass without a moment to commemorate the day that shall live in infamy- the birth of The Smiling Infidel. I only got two comments on my first blog entry, and one of the two was my own. Not exactly a rousing success but then I got a dig in at Hilary Clinton in a completely unoffensive way so that made it well worth my while. Do you wanna check it out? Sure you do! Here it is.........REAL MEN REALLY DO WEAR PINK!

Happy Anniversary! You were my first "unknown" visitor. Ahh, memories. They light the corners of my mind. It's uplighting. Very attractive up there.

Happy blogaversary! Your first post that I remember was about hair removal in April.

I just read some of the posts I missed, and I can't explain how upset I am about missing Poop Week. Hopefully, that will be revisited this week.

omar said...

And by "this week," I meant "this year."

I was so excited, I wanted Poop Week to arrive early.

Mimo said...

Happy Anniversary! I'm so glad I found you :D You've been in my favorites ever since I found out what blogger was. Thanks for all the wonderful entries that have been so entertaining and elightening!

Happy Anniversary! I am glad to have come across your blog and I will be visiting again.

One year later and we are all the better for it. I have to have my daily Elastic, if I didn't, my underwear would fall down. Congratulations on Year One and many more to come.
Your friend,
a payne

No Cool Story said...

Congratulations on your first anniversary! May you have many many more.
Blogtopia is a much better place because of you and your Infideliness, your elasticfullines and ladylike ways.
I have seen the light EWBL, I’ve seen it, it's blue and it says "attention Kmart shoppers"

Kumbaya!

Your amiga,
NCS

Thanks for making my work day between the hours of 10pm to 6am a lot more enjoyable. You're awesomely funny. In the words of INXS "don't change for you and don't change a thing for me."

Thoroughly Mormon Millie said...

Wow, we started blogging ALMOST the same time. I was behind you. As usual. But thankfully, not downwind. ;)

Congrats!

Lianne said...

And what an auspicious occassion it is! If we can't have a little snap of the elastic, well, it just isn't a good day.

Glad you're in my life!

Happy Blogiversary!

Real me DO wear pink and they DO dig Hilary! It's okay to express yourselves, men....;)

Awww, you guys have touched the very top of my heart with your kind words. I say the top
because if it came from the bottom it would be a fart.

carrotjello- Misty watercolored memories of the way we were....Back then I was known as unknown, and now I'm known as, well, you know. Know what I mean?

OMAR- You light up my life, and give me hope to carry on! Poop Week is scheduled to plop sometime in February. Would you like to be a contributing author?

mimo-"Enlightening", huh? I am a mystical fart guru, after all.

randi- Bonjour! Hola! Aloha! Wilkommen!

A Payne- Without elastic my pants would fall down. Oh, what a horror that would be!

NCS- I hear Tom Jones crooning, "Lastic's a laaaady. Whoa whoa whoa, she's a lady!"

carronin- Yeah, but INXS also said, "Your moves are so raw, I've got to let you know......you're one of my kind" Should we really rest our laurels upon a pedestal made of quotes from men in tight leather pants?

millie- Taking the old, "Do as I'm doing, follow, follow me" a bit too far, eh? :)

lianne- Oh, SNAP!

glo- Real men wear pink and I've seen Hilary in many a pink outfit. Think about it.......

Sketchy said...

Happy new year of blogging-infidelity...oops that doesn't sound right now does it...

Can't say I was even a lurker at your first post, but I'm here for you now (or at least your feed) and isn't that what really matters?

Happy Bloggiversary! Your blog always makes me smile! How do you feel now, knowing your fart jokes have made a difference in the world! :)

I normally strive to avoid Texans, but in your case I'll continue to make an exception. Happy Anniversary, EWBL!

jams o donnell said...

Happy blogoversary ewbl. may there be many, many dart jokes to come.. Dart jokes? well if you can wring a laugh out of a nine dart checkput then go for it! in the mean time keep them fart jokes a coming!

Demosthenes said...

Yes, but when men wear shirts that say "Real Men Wear Shirts" you know it's just gone a bit overboard.

Anyway, Happy Blogaversary, which sounds a little like some kind of supervillain in hindsight, but all the same!

Elizabeth-W said...

Happy Anniversary! What did I do with my time before you?? Laughed at potty humor a lot less, for one... :) Here's to another superb year!

Miss Biotech said...

Happy 1-st, dear Infidel.
I guess I was the first commentator on your blog. Makes me feel good about life.
But what a ride it has been! Such diverse topics, a plethora of exciting and enlightened discussions!
I am proud of you, Infidel. Keep up the good work.

Radioactive Jam said...

I shall sing you the bloggiversary song. Simply imagine my scratchy, off-key falsetto singing voice as I belt out this familiar favorite:
Happy bloggiversary to you
You like fart jokes 'tis true
But then we all do too--
Happy bloggiversary to yoooooou!

compulsive writer said...

Happy Happy Day! Congrats! Keep up the great work! (You can take on Shrillery any day in my book, subtly or not.)

elasticwaistbandlady said...

THE LONG AWAITED RETURN OF MISS BIOTECH!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did you bring me a Blogiversary present? According to traditional guidelines, a diamond encrusted tiara is the appropriate gift for a one year blogiversary.

To everyone else.....I'm feeling the love and basking in it its radiant glow! I promise to visit each and every one of you as soon as my grueling work schedule lets up on Thrusday afternoon.

I have been away (both mentally and physically) and sad to see I missed this very important event. HAPPY (belated) Bloggerversary, Elastic! Youuuu light up my life.... :)
