I know I've recounted the origin story before, how back in the early '00s I enjoyed reading nihilistic_kid's LJ but rarely commented because I didn't have an account. He suggested I get one just for commenting, I did, and the rest, as they say, is history. I became known as the TV Nerd, and that guy who always talks about Doctor Who; some of my more serious blog entries were picked up and linked to by news services and feeds, and my book reviews apparently became so well known that not only did they land me reviewing and columnist gigs around the Web, but publishers actually started mailing me books for the purpose of being reviewed on this blog. What a strange and wonderful six years it's been!
I've made a lot of friends on LJ in those six years, even managed to meet some of you in person, and I just want to say thanks to all of you not just for making blogging worth the time and effort, but also for taking the time to get to know me. You guys are great. Here's to the next six years!
