A Momentous Article Anniversary: Please Help

Hi, Folks, I need your help with something. A momentous anniversary silently slipped by on 31 December 2011, unnoticed by all but me. You see, that date marked…

The 10th Anniversary of my First-Ever Article

Yes, that’s right! On 31 December 2001 I posted my first-ever article here at This is Chris dot com. It was a rather tepid recap of the the logistics of that Christmas, which was the first one after Carrie & I moved in together, but which we didn’t actually end up spending together at all. So old is this article that all of its images are broken and I have no idea where to find them anymore!

In the ten years since then I’ve written 83 more articles. Some years were more productive than others. There was the shameful 2010 where I only managed to scrape out 2 articles, one of which was my ubiquitous, yearly Oscar article.

Now here’s what I need your help with, my dear & loyal readers. I want to write a 10-year anniversary article about my best articles. And since you are my dear & loyal readers, I know that you’ve obviously read ALL of my articles.

So I’d like for you to please leave a comment on this post with what your favorite articles of mine are. On the off chance that you haven’t read all of my articles (laughable, I know), here are some of my personal favorites:

And of course you should browse my full Articles Archive.

    1. Chris says:

      That would be “Samus Aran is a Hottie” — the article that gets the most internet traffic!

    Congrats on ten years of internetting.

    Oh no! How do I choose? I should go back and read them all again, but off the top of my head here are my favorites:

    Pumpkin Carving with The Ocean Shores Pirate!
    My Gift-Giving Philosophy
    Proper Garage Sale Etiquette
    Time Travel: This Time, It’s Personal

    These are the ones I still think about and sometimes even talk to people about long after having read them for the first time.
