Everything: The Great Big Blog Of

My son says he is too old to remember, but there is one gift he asked for, year after year, and never received. He wanted it so much, he even tried to make one a few times: the handy-dandy Great Big Book Of Everything.

Not the one inspired by the kid's television show, Stanley, but a real one with everything in it. Every year, I ask him if he still wants it.

"Do you remember?"

"Sure Dad, but I'm too old to watch Stanley anymore."

"Really?" When did that happen?

"It's okay Dad," he laughed. "Besides, I thought your blog was The Great Big Book Of Everything."

"Funny. I guess you are growing up."

"Yep, I'm pretty old," he smiled. "So, can we play Heroscape now?"

"You bet. Just give me a minute ... I want to see if you're right."

Whether we agreed or agreed to disagree, thank you all for making 2007 interesting. Likewise for everyone who read and commented.

Sure, there are a couple more posts to round out 2007. But mostly I'm looking forward to a rewarding 2008, wondering who might make next year's Great Big Blog Of Everything, and making sure the lethal Marro hive is stopped from making more venomous predators in some uncharted jungle!

You have to enjoy this stuff before you're "pretty old" for it.

Thanks for including me on your list -- I'm looking forward to checking out some of the others you mentioned.

Thanks Rich. Great list. I might manage to work my way through it by next Christmas!! Never too old.

Rich on 12/27/07, 8:24 AM said...

You're welcome Karen.

Thank you for linking to me earlier this year. I've visited several times since, but that is what social media is all about or so it seems.


Rich on 12/27/07, 8:25 AM said...


Very funny! I just hope I included everyone. :)

All my best,

Thank you for including us in your list. kids were just watching Stanley! ;)

Hope you're having a great holiday!

Rich on 12/27/07, 9:14 AM said...

Thank you Shannon.

And yes, that is funny! Honestly, it was not one of my favorites (I preferred Bear In The Big Blue House), but I do miss him raiding the paper to make his book. Alas, I'm sure I'll give it a second chance when my daughter is old enough! Ha!

We are enjoy the holidays; and I hope you are as well.

Thanks for having included me (double thanks because my blog is in Italian)

Rich on 12/27/07, 10:17 AM said...

Hey Catepol,

My pleasure and thank you. As for the double thanks, well, that's what translation programs are for! At least I think so.

All my best,

I am confident that this list took a while for you to compile, thank you for including SMM in it!

Rich on 12/27/07, 11:09 AM said...

@Debo Thanks. It's everyone who linked to us throughout 2007 though a few people might not remember. ;)

@SMM I have to admit, tracking links from earlier this year was a bit challenging, but worth it.

@DK Thank you. I guess this is my personal media snacker list. ha!

Hey, Rich!

Thanks so much for the end-of-the-year link love. Much appreciated.

Happy New Year!

JD at I Do Things

Rich on 12/27/07, 11:42 AM said...

@Opit I guess so. I didn't think of it that way, but I guess that is what it is. Ha.

@JD I guess this time, I did it ... so you didn't have to. ROLF.

It was fun though; a great way to remember some past conversations. Next year, I'll make sure I don't miss anyone.

Hope never is too late :) I've been off for a long time, globetrotting here and there. Today I decided to go back to business with my blog and check the dashboard. I had a big surprise finding Dadamedia on your list and for that I allow myself to be grateful to you. My blog is reshaping these days and finding myself on your list encouraged me a lot to restart my "job". Thanks again.
