July 19 is the Second Anniversary of CatSynth!
And by coincidence, we are hosting Weekend Cat Blogging (really, it is a coincidence). So we invite all our friends to participate and celebrate with us. As always, please leave a comment with your link, and we’ll post it during the roundup later this weekend.
Of course, we must post the photo of Luna that started it all on July 19, 2006:
and some fun stats for the occasion. Over two years at CatSynth, we have:
298 “catsynth pics.”
The latter is using some custom analysis tools I created for the occasion, which also provide the top 33 tags/categories here at CatSynth:
|weekend cat blogging||97|
|carnival of the cats||32|
|cats on tuesday||20|
Some tags, such as “photography”, should really be much higher.
Many readers may recall that last year, on our first anniversary, the site went down due to a rather annoying problem with our service provider, and we were sent into exile at the CatSynth FEMA Trailer. So we are leaving an anniversary post at the trailer as well.
A year ago, we at CatSynth had no idea what was going to be in store for us over the next year. A new job, a new home, a new life.
We traded the sun and greenery of our old home:
for our new home:
and life in the big city:
But some things remain the same. Luna, of course, is always here. And our friends and family. And CatSynth!
And we’ll still be here, continuing to do what we always do…
Some other significant milestones this weekend:
The 200th Friday Ark boards this weekend at the modulator.
Our friend Dragonheart is two years old today.
This is week also includes several birthdays for friends, whom we won’t embarrass by announcing their ages on our rather public forum…
It’s only one weekend after the Bad Kitty Cats Festival of Chaos first anniversary, so let us include it as well. This weekend’s edition will be at Life from a Cat’s Perspective with Samantha and Tigger.
