Countdown to Catblogging

| Thu Mar. 7, 2013 6:00 AM EST

Anniversary-wise, the big news right now is the upcoming 10th anniversary of the invasion of Iraq. I'll have a bit more to say about that later. But there's another milestone that's right around the corner too: the 10th anniversary of Friday Catblogging.

The actual anniversary is still a few days away, but I figure you want the whole catblogging story, don't you? So this is where it started: with the post on the right ten years ago today. The world seemed awash in troubles that day, but when I looked outside, Inkblot seemed to have the whole thing all figured out. Just snooze your troubles away! So I took a picture and put it on the blog. Four days later that led me to the next fateful step on the road to Friday Catblogging. I'll have that for you on Monday.

NOTE: Many thanks to my old friends at the Washington Monthly, for helping recreate these historic blog posts, which had sadly fallen into disrepair over time. The internet, as we all know, is not an archival-quality medium.
