Happy Blogoversary!

Today is my seventh blogoversary.  Hooray!  We celebrated by having a system crash this morning, which is kind of appropriate in a way.  After seven years, I have yet to work on a truly reliable blogging platform.

But an even more appropriate way to celebrate is by putting up some bonus catblogging.  So here it is: a picture of Inkblot snapped three minutes ago.  If I had a cat-cam set up in my living room, this is what you’d see in real time.  In fact, it’s what you’d see most of the time in real time.  And if I had a people-cam set up in my study, you’d see me staring at a glowing screen and typing some words into a box.  Which is also what you’d see most of the time.  In other words, if you substitute “blogging” for “snoozing,” I’m an awful lot like a housecat.  Funny how that works.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
