We Are One!
Yes, we’re one!
No, I’m not making a political or spiritual pronouncement by proclaiming our oneness. It’s just that yesterday marked the first anniversary of the existence of Out Walking the Dog, and I feel like celebrating. On October 29th, 2009, we published our first blog post. Time to party!
The blogiversary made me wonder how we’re doing in terms of our development, so I did a little research. According to the CDC’s Department for Health and Human Services, Out Walking the Dog is smack on target for key developmental milestones. Like most healthy one-year-olds, we’ve been babbling for months already, and have now progressed to “babbling with inflection.” That means we sound remarkably like we’re making sense. (Click on the arrow to listen up.) Sounds about right to me.
Esau and I are each a year older (wiser, not so much), still madly in love with our strange and magical city, and happy to go out walking every day. Over the course of the year, we’ve received some nice out-of-the-blue publicity, including profiles in the New York Times and Modern Dog magazine (yes, it’s a real magazine – Esau is nothing if not up-to-date).
Mostly, we’re grateful to you, dear reader, for your interest, and hope you’ll stick around for our second year. If we continue to meet age-appropriate developmental milestones, we should be speaking in actual sentences any day now. Yes, there’s always something to look forward to at Out Walking the Dog.2010, In the City, October comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
