Fandango’s Friday Flashback — December 27

Wouldn’t you like to expose your newer readers to some of you earlier posts that they might never have seen? Or remind your long term followers of posts that they might not remember?

Each Friday I will publish a post I wrote on this exact date in a previous year.

How about you? Why don’t you reach back into your own archives and highlight a post that you wrote on this very date in a previous year? You can repost your Friday Flashback post on your blog and pingback to this post. Or you can just write a comment below with a link to the post you selected.

If you’ve been blogging for less than a year, go ahead and choose a post that you previously published on this day (the 27th) of any month within the past year and link to that post in a comment.


This was originally posted on December 27, 2009 — exactly one decade ago on my old blog. I honestly don’t remember why 2009 was such a bad year for me, but I do remember that 2010 was, indeed, a much better one.

It’s About Friggin’ Time!

Happy New Year 2010I am so glad that this year has finally come to an end. What a lousy, awful, miserable year it was. I can’t think of very many really good things that happened in 2009. Yes, I managed to stay alive for another full year, but beyond that there just aren’t many remembrances of 2009 that I can reflect back on fondly. In fact, when it comes to 2009, most memories make me wince.

And so it is with open arms and some high expectations that I welcome 2010 as I say a not-so-fond farewell to 2009. I am bound and determined that 2010 will be a much better year than 2009 was, and that just over 365 days from now, I will be able to look back on the year and say, “Thank you, 2010. I’m sorry to see you go.”
