Will there be cake?

Today is Chocolate and Vodka's 5th birthday!
My very first post, aptly named Post Number One, was posted on Sunday 16 June 2002 at 02:07 PM BST. I feel reluctant to link to it, because it took me quite a long time to get into my stride on CnV, to find my own voice and to stop trying to be David Weinberger or Kevin Marks (who still hasn't fixed his CSS), who were my bloggy idols back then. When I read the old posts, they do sort of make me cringe a bit, but it's there in the archives, if you're really that interested.
But it's hard to believe that I've been talking shit on the web for five whole years. Wow. And people still come and read it! *shakes head in surprise*
Anyway, happy birthday Chocolate and Vodka! Here's to another five years!

I didn't know blogs liked cake, but if yours does then we ought to have some–see you in Boston!

Happy 5th!
You don't know me, but I'm one of those millions that lurk in the shadows in awe of you. I just had to step out into the light to say congratulations, and hope to touch the hem of your garment as you passed by. Now, back to the dark side…

Suw, of 6.5 billion or so of us, you are one of the few who have both found and consistently used your blogging voice. Bravo on five years!
But … are you now tapering off? I hope not, and hope that your embrace of the rest of the world will find its way back to CNV in due course, as has been the case til now.
BTW, can you share how your stats have changed over the course of the past five?

Happy Fifth Blogthday, Suw.
Hmmm, what do you give for a fifth blog anniversary? Wood? A widget?

A widget would be lovely. One that mixes chocolate martinis, perhaps?

I'm not tapering off, no. I'm actually blogging more recently than I was – it's just a time issue.
And I can't really do a five year stat review, because over those five year's i've been on 3 different tools, and I don't have consistent stats for all that time.
