Tiny Hiney is Five Years Old

If I was still updating my first blog, today would be its fifth anniversary. This is how it began:

Start Me Up

5:59 p.m. - Thursday, Nov. 28, 2002

I am such a cheater...
This diary was originally started like 11 days
ago. But now that I've learned some basic html, (bold, anyone?), changed my template, paid extra to add images, and now have diary #2 going, I can officially begin this one. Except right now I have nothing to say and I probably never will have anything to say. I just like adding links.

Why call it Tiny Hiney? Well, why not? Actually, I once heard about this Chihuahua named Tiny whose last name was Hines so he was called Tiny Hiney. That just totally cracked me up and I knew one day I'd have to use it somewhere. And I have used it a few times in the past. I wanted to call this Blah Blah Blah but that was taken, so once again, Tiny Hiney comes in handy. (Hey, I never claimed to be creative or anything.)

By the way, the first blog I ever read was The Daily Dewayne. I forget how I found it. But after reading that one and a few others, I decided to do my own blog. Except it had one entry on each page so it wasn't very blog-like. I had tried Blogspot first and didn't like any of their templates so I figured out how to change a free template by learning some simple HTML from Webmonkey (check out their Special Characters page if you want to learn how to make ™ or ♥) and Lissa Explains It All. And, the code for the box around the text came from Mandarin Designs (thanks, Guava for sharing that site!).

Congratulations! I hope you keep on blogging. I have this theory that after a while it becomes it's own reward, in a weird zen sort of way.

Thank you! I know your blog (blogs) have always inspired me to keep doing it. :)
