Three years of this and I'm still alive!

It's pretty hard to believe, but today is the third anniversary of The World's Most Depressing Blog.

I remember that I started this thing after the death of The Worst Blog in History founded by our good friend Natmac, who is certainly a blog pioneer and the man who started me on the righteous path. I was one of 17 or 18 contributors to that blog and when it folded, I decided to start up a blog of my own. This little thing is the result and I'm amazed that it's lasted as long as it has. At first it really was just a very depressing blog about my very depressing life, but then I branched out into the realms of popular culture, crazed right wing politics and mind-boggling randomness. Thankfully my life still sucks and I'm able to continue to update all my kind readers on the sorry state of my existence.

There really is no way I'd have the desire to continue this thing without knowing that I have at least a handful of really great folks who take time out of their day to check up on it. To all of you who continue to read, whether you're relative newcomers or have been with me since the beginning, I sincerely thank you. Yeah there have been patches where the updates have been quite sporadic and many times I've threatened to shut the thing down because I don't feel like anyone cares. But God willing, I'll try and keep the old blog going for as long as I can. There may be times when I feel like giving up and times when I feel like it's not worth it but I know in my heart of hearts that I do have some really great readers who give me the strength to keep on keeping on.

Sorry if this is maudlin or rambling or just plain poorly written. These sort of things aren't easy to write but your support is really appreciated and thanks for making depression just a little bit easier!
