A mosaic-portrait of me made from a selection of photos from past Odds&Ends entries.
There's no better month to indulge in self-congratulatory pats-on-the-back than International Odds&Ends month. Come May 14, Odds&Ends will turn 5; it's a milestone not only for mankind but for me too. You're right; this is going to be another narcissistic piece about how great I am.
For someone who has chronic commitment issues, I've stuck to doing this for 5 long years. Over that period of time, there had been a redesign, lame blog titles, like "New Kid on the Blog", are no longer in use and I've outgrown liberal usage of smilies, which are a great deal cooler back then than they are now.
Over the past 5 years, I have had 1440 comments telling me how amazing I am; they're pretty pointless really because I'm well aware of my greatness. That is why I have made a 30-second tribute (it takes about 1 minute to load) to the unsung heroes of Odds&Ends - the stalkers. Dear blog stalkers, you guys kept me going; without you, there's no motivation in making each post worthy of your taking the effort to leave a comment. For that, I sincerely thank you for your anonymous adoration.
