PFP Blogoversary!

Today is the one-year anniversary for Pretty, Fizzy Paradise!

So um...wish I had an interesting story behind this blog really. I remember being pointed toward Ragnell's blog by a friend of mine, but being too shy to really say anything. Then Diamondrock was all "Let's make blogs!" and I was all "Okay!"

And here we are.

Yeah. I never claimed to be terribly deep. :-)

So what's changed for me since the founding of this blog?

I've switched favorite Green Lanterns. Much as I love Kyle, I apparently love red-headed jackasses more. Oh well. :-)

I've somehow lost my hatred for both Jade and Dick Grayson. This irritates me more than you can possibly understand.

I've written pseudo-literary analysis! And not for school!

I've discovered feminism. Well, I've always been a feminist, I guess. But only in the past year have I really been vocal about it, and where I stand with different issues.

I've gotten involved in a few side projects.

I've actually got an online presence! I've surfed and lurked for almost a decade, here and there and everywhere, but I'd never really managed to get enough courage to pop out and say hi!

I've written a fanfic! And a parody script!

I've been on fandom_wank! With my real name attached! o_O

I've been crusading to increase appreciation of Sanderson Hawkins. (As well as Johnny Sorrow)

And abused poor old Wes Dodds.

I've graduated college! And got myself a job! (Now on to LSATs in February!)

I kept to a goal of at least one post a day! And held it! (I never said they'd be GOOD posts mind you!)

And most importantly, I've had a lot of fun and got the chance to talk to all you guys! It's been a blast!

Here's to next year!

    I think you should change farourite Green Lanterns every six months. I mean they do have a Corps again so there's a lot to choose from.

    Congrats on the year.

    Awwww! Happy Birthday, kiddo! Here's to another great year of blog postings that make me think, make me laugh, and makes me understand the obsession with Green Lantern just a little bit more.

    Wow, this is a lot of anniversaries in a short period of time. Must be something about winter.

    Happy anniversary! Buy yourself some paper!

    Didn't realize your blog was so recent. You've become entrenched in the blogosphere rather quickly.

    And no love for G'Nort? Shame on you...

    Long time lurker deciding to take this opportunity to say "Happy Blogiversary!" to one of the blogs most likely to make me smile.

    Many thanks for the last year's worth of posts.

    (And one day I'm sure you'll come to realise that the One True Lantern is now and always was Ch'p. Rings For Rodents!)

    I blame Beau Smith.
