Happy 5th Birthday, Blog!!!
The blog is 5 years old today. I have this amazing setup (pictured above) and just think it would be really grand if you all could be here with me to celebrate, eat Star Wars cake and lick a Han Solo lollipop with me, but alas, I'll have to lick Han Solo all by myself...
Birthdays and Anniversaries always seem to make you want to look back and remember and I was no different when I started writing this post. First thing I tried to do is remember and declare what my favorite post of all time would be. Sadly, I have a really bad memory and also, I'm totally averse to saying anything is my 'absolute favorite'. I always have runners-up and caveats.
To address the first issue (bad memory), I went back and perused through all the old posts. We have approximately 400, by the way. And that was fun all by itself. I noticed that in the beginning of the blog we did alot of posts where we actually talked about writing and gave pointers and inspired discussion (sometimes). I have to say I miss that kind of interaction and I wonder if I'm all alone in that.
As for the second issue (inability to commit to a favorite), I decided I could name a few of my favorites and not tie myself down to any one and only all-time favorite. This made that task a whole lot easier (at first) and then a whole lot harder when I then had to put limits to my list lest this post become as long as one of my stories...
So here they are, in no particular order, a few of my favorite posts from over the years. Please feel free to chime in with a list (or all-time favorite) of your own:
Universal Han and Leia Fanfic Truths
Ten Inappropriate Times for Han and Leia to Consummate their Relationship
Best Han and Leia Moments in the EU
Two Fanfic Writers Collide
The Entire "Ask Us Anything" Series
Special Guest Posts by Han Solo and by Leia Organa Solo
And, all of our: Misc. Challenges, Quickie Challenges and Missing Moments.
I told you I was no good at picking just one thing! Either way, though, it's been great fun and I look forward to more and more fun to come!
Thanks for the memories!
