What are Your Three Favorite White Dade Posts?
Well, next Thursday marks a monumental day in the history of this blog. It is, of course, my one year anniversary of when I began this all-consuming fire that is White Dade. If you'd have told me a year ago that all the things that have happened as a result of my bitching and moaning on the internet every day would happen, I would never have believed you. I have met a lot of people I never thought I'd meet, done a lot of things I never thought I'd do, and made new friends all over the country. And soon I'll be eating ribs at Leo Sterger's house. I think that may be the most surreal.
But being the only child that I am, I cannot limit this birthday cleebration to only one day. Heavens no, that would never keep in the traditon I have of making a much bigger deal out of a birthday than any normal person deserves to. So the next week will be filled all sorts of special things. There will be the requisite timeline, of course. Blogger ends your account if you do not do one within a week of the anniversary of your first post. It will all culminate in a repost of my first ever essay on this blog. Few of you have read it, but I think it sums up the point of this adventure pretty well in just over a thousand words. And maybe it will let some of you new readers in on why I started doing this in the first place. Then, to celebrate, I am going to Washington DC on Friday and attending my first ever Haters Happy Hour, a gathering of various DC bloggers. I am not going for this event, mind you, more the Miami-Marlyand game, but it happened to fall on the same weekend.
So, I've been giving you all something to do at work for the last year (okay, really, more like 7 months for most of you) and have asked nothing in return except that you keep coming back for more. Pretty advantageous for you, isn't it? So for my birthday all I am going to ask is that as many of you as possible, even those of you who NEVER comment, tell me what your three favorite posts were from the previous year. Hell, maybe you only liked one, but anything you can offer is greatly appreciated. You can comment anonymously or leave your name. You can tell me why or just give me the titles or descriptions. But this will actually be more helpful to me than most of you will ever know. Consdier it a birthday present to your old buddy White Dade. Or enemy. Whatever. Thanks again for a wonderful year (in advance) and enjoy the next week.
