Happy Anniversary, Blog!

As has become a hallowed tradition here, I am posting this notice late. On May 27th, this blog celebrated two years of taking up space on the web!

Ah, it seems like just yesterday that my dear pal, the multi-talented John, suggested I start a blog as a way to establish my presence in cyberspace. I was a bit leery at first. I was a non-entity professionaly, and I was pretty computer illiterate. He told me not to worry: it was easy to get started, and plenty of other non-entities had blogs. He was right! It was easy to get started, and, professionally, at least, I was even a bigger unknown than I thought I was! In no time though, I smoothed out the more noticeable bugs, and soon this blog became the Cavalcade of Wimsey you all know and love. Or at least check out now and again. I remain cartooning's best-kept secret, though.

When I first began, I had grand notions of posting something new and exciting every day. What I failed to realize was that A) I don't experience things new  and exciting that are worth writing about every day, and, B) I'm lazy, and working on this blog takes valuable time that I could be spending goofing off and reading blogs by people who post every day.

I have scaled down my thinking since, and I now try to post at least once a week, although now and again I manage to squeeze out a few more. Quality over Quantity. That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

To celebrate the anniversary of this blog, I have a special treat: Over the next few days, I will  re-run some of my "classic" posts from the past. For those of you new to this site, it  will give you a taste of what this blog is like. For you regular readers, it will  give you an excuse to not bother checking out this site for a spell. (PLEASE NOTE: In the grand tradition of this blog, I may not actually follow through on my promise, so don't be too surprised if you don't see any "Blog Classics".)

Seriously, though, doing this blog has been a blast, and I really appreciate all the kind, and sometimes not-so-kind, comments from all of you. As long as you keep reading, I'll keep writing and drawing.

For at least two more  years.

Congratulations Bill! I read somewhere that most bloggers loose interest and quit their blog after 6months.

I really enjoy reading your posts and drooling over your drawing ability, so keep them coming.

Happy Anniversary, Bill White Cartoons! I am so glad you were born and I have enjoyed you very much! When I found you, I thought you were created just to entertain me & me alone....but it's wonderful to see the posts from other people who also enjoy you! I hope Bill White Cartoons blog continues for many years to come and I, for one, would LOVE to see some classic posts!

David, Chris and John-

Thanks for the kind words and ego-boo. If I weren't so manly, I'd blush!
