Happy Second First Anniversary!

October 8th, 2012

It's been awhile since a post was up and I didn't even realize dat WWD! v2.0 was actually a year old.... again!

Wassup Wit Dat!

Well, actually, ovah a year and a month old now but still, how often do you have a second 1st?

I'll be da first to admit dat coming back to write WWD! was a difficult one. There were a lot of "circumstances" to consider and at da time I was going on 15 months of unemployment so coming back without actually being part of da newspaper was a tough one. Also being Mr.Mom was a handful in itself but with da encouragment of emails from WWD! readers, I decided to take a stab at it once again.

It's been a difficult journey so far as my real full-time job (no, witnessing/being part of WWD! moments is NOT my full-time job) really takes a lot out of me and while still juggling Da Baby, I'm still into coaching (off-season now) and I pick up side jobs here and there so you can say I have my hands constantly full.

For WWD! v2.0 I really wanted to add some things I thought would be pretty cool like "Wat Dat?" (only posted once and still working on it) yet keep up with da regulah stuff like "Pidgin Word of da Day" (which I haven't done since WWD! v1.0 :sad: ) but I've always had plans to change things up li'dat and now at da very least, there are more pictures to help illustrate da mo'olelo's.

We've lost a lot of readers from WWD! v1.0 since it's been in hiatus for over a year but we also have gained a bunch of new readers from da second go around. I appreciate all da Lurkahs who spend da time to read but I especially appreciate all those who take da leap and post a comment as without any of those, I'd probably give up da blog.

So Happy Second 1st Anniversary Wassup Wit Dat! and to all of you who made WWD! enjoyable and fun to do, take a deep breath and help blow da candle out cause without you, WWD! would be nothing but a short Korean on a kim chee overdose.

    :cool: Happy 2nd Year to Everyone!!! :cool:

    ... hey Braddah Lance ... thanks for starting up again ... I know all things come to an end ... and it's not very often that it starts up again ... but I'm glad you decided to do it ...

    ... and do what you can, but don't overdo it ... to fit in writing this blog is really appreciated ...

    ... yeah, life's just so busy ... it's like a series of waves coming at you ... you get in the water ... the first wave kinda puts you off balance ... you're ok, no big deal ... then the next wave is a big one and knocks you under the water ... but you get back up and the next wave smacks you in the face without warning ... undaunted, you rise up and plant your feet firmly in the sand and brace yourself for the next wave ... this time you're steady in the water ... and you're ready for any wave the ocean throws at you ...

    ... haha, sorry about that blabbering ... you can tell I went to the beach yesterday ... saw a kid getting knocked down over and over again by the shorebreak ... but kept at it until he got the hang of it ...

    ... Have a Good One Everyone!!! ...

  18. CoconutWilly:

    Congrats BL! A lot has changed since your first, first column. But you have remained a constant. Thanks for the great reading and insight.


  19. king katonk:

    Congrats BL on your second anniversary of WWD! v.2.0. As always you crack me up with your insights and observations. I think all the Kwonics/Lanceformers can personally relate to your stories and adventures in life. Thanks for keeping up the blog. One day when your daughter gets older she will read the cyber-chronicle of her dad's life and smile.

    "Remember BL, we're not laughing at you...we're laughing with you."

    Peace Braddah.


  20. Keoni Simpkins:

    SO LATE!! BUT...Happy 2nd First Anniversary! LoL!! I'm more lurker than poster compared to WWD v1.0, but only cuz the advertiser isn't one of my regulars anymore!! But I normally come thru and read all your posts over the course of a few weeks (or even months...I'm bad! I know!) in just a day!! I wanna post, but then think it's too late! LoL!!

    So...anyway...Happy Anniversary BL! And even though it's not New Years (or Christmas...but the stores don't know that! LoL!), I'm making a resolution to read and post more often!! ;)
