I can say that I am as surprised as you are for lasting this long. I January 10th, 2008 I penned We are the New Negroes and started to share my views (right and wrong) with the world. I came close to call it quits eight months later when I thought I lost all my initial work to a crappy WordPress update and had to start from zero. Luckily I managed to find copies of most of the posts and posted them again.
I guess the reason I have lasted this long is because I accepted and lived under the first principle of Blogging: You blog for yourself and nobody else. I write about what I want, when I want it and avoid being a crowd pleaser. OK, so sometimes I throw the obligatory post under the cannons of Rule 5, sue me.
So thank you for dropping by and reading my blog, hoist a cold one in my name today and have a piece of cake to celebrate.
