So, it turns out that my Blogiversary, my one year anniversary of Blogland, has passed without me knowing it
I thought it was in mid January, but it was on the sixth of January.
Just thought you should all know.
So, I'm just going to think about my stay at Blogland
I joined as Who, Me? I'm Nobody. Sparky and Izz greeted me, and if they hadn't responded to my comment which was planned to be a one off, I wouldn't be here. So, within a week (I think it was a week) I ran into NegativeSanity, who everyone knows by a different name now. He was talking to Sparky. He mentioned he liked RPing, which I of course had no idea of at that sheltered stage. I asked, and he told me what it was. Sparky, I think, started the little RP after that which I will always remember as long as I'm the same person. We fought zombies and vampires, and I came up with my magic, Bonebreaking.
As things went on, I met more and more people. Eve, Gab, Thrust, Flame, Lynxia, Val, Robin. NegativeSanity also changed his name to Miles. I don't remember all the names, how could I? I was overwhelmed. From a loner, a bookworn and nothing else to a part of something that was too great for me to fully understand.
That was the beauty of Blogland. It was something, I don't think any of us really understood what though. It was a place for friends, for family. It was more then a fandom.
Somewhere along the way, Miles and Thrust helped me pick the name Nixion Strange. And, if course, Miles changed his name to Zathract Mist, who I'm happy to say is my best friend. We started writing Nix and Mist, which is still going.
Blogland started me writing again, and better than I'd ever been before. I met the best friends I'll ever had here. It's where I first feel in love, where I first started to actually grow as a person.
I've got more friends then I can mention at Blogland now. Excuse me if I don't mention you. This isn't really about my friends, as much as me. Let me be selfish in this one post.
It's had it's ups and downs. I had falling outs with people. I managed to make everyone hate me for a few minutes when something I still don't understand happened to me. But, of course, I managed to make everyone liked me a few times as well.
This one year, I think, has been the best of my life simply because of this. I don't think it's possible to have next year like it. It won't be as good, I'm sure of it, but there's still plenty of potential for great things to happen.
So, I guess now's as good a time as any to tell you all that I'm leaving and not coming back. I'm sorry, but I need to go for personal-
Oh god, sorry, I can't do it seriously. Nah, you're never going to get rid of me. Not yet, at least.
You've all made this year special, and without you I wouldn't be who I am today. Thank you all.
Peace Out!


  1. *grins*

    I'll never forget that first RP fight.

    Happy Blogversary Nix!

  2. Oh god. I remember all that. I was IzzFizz. I was still pretty new too. I don't remember the first comment I ever made. It was a one off and I had no idea about any of this. So I just celebrate my blogiversary around xmas because that's when I became a proper bloglandian.
    We're all so nuts.

    Happy Blogiversary Nobody!

  3. Aside from all this lovely reminiscence, I am proud to say that I am Blog-older than you. XD it just me, or in those days when we literally LIVED in Blogland, when it was like a second home to us... it felt like we'd known each other for a month for each day that went by in Blogland. Looking back, it hadn't even been a month and it seemed like I'd known all you guys for half a year!

    Why yes, I believe this is relevant to the post!

    Happy Blogversary, Nix! Jesus, that DID give me a shock...


  4. Sounds like good times, man. Have another great year and I hope you never leave.

    Yes the old days will never compare to the new ones, but every time someone posts a bloggerversary post, I feel like it's the start of a sequel, with a more familiar crowd, and new faces and sadly missing ones.
    It's been amazing knowing you, Nix. We can relate in a lot of ways. I am truly honored to have you on my list of people I know. One of my few friends.. (It's a mental list, don't worry about it...)
    I almost exploded when I read that second to last paragraph, but I knew something didn't add up, so I didn't.

    Have a good second year!

  6. Can you change Editor's Article on your blogroll to TheBookGazer? (my new blog)
    (its Eddie)

  7. My heart just stopped Nix. You were leaving... God I hate you sometimes...
