Even though I’ve been blogging for over twelve years, I didn’t get my first domain, SpunkySprite.com, until March of 2001. Only months later did I get OneStarryNight.com and I’ve been here ever since!

I’ve recently redesigned my entire site from ground up:

And overall I couldn’t have been more blessed over the past eleven years with all of you. The friends, the readers, the lurkers. Everyone counts and everyone matters. You keep me going and have been with me through the worst of the worst times and the best of the best times. YOU ARE AWESOME!

So no matter if this is your 10,000 visit or very first time here, leave a comment! Even better? Those folks that have been around awhile? Share an OSN memory in the comments!

I know I already said it, but I LOVE the redesign. LOVE IT! I feel so lucky to have “met” you and be a part of your blogging/internet life!

Happy 11th birthday to OneStarryNight.com!

Happy Birthday, OSN!

I dig the front page of OSN like crazy. Especially with all of the autumn-esque post thumbnails. <3

Happy 11th birthday! hmmm, an OSN memory… I remember when you started doing pod-casts! I can’t recall why you stopped, but it was the first time I’d ever heard of one (being not very web savvy when you did them) and I thought it was so neat! :)

AHHH StarryCast LOL!!!! I, surprisingly, don’t have ANY of them saved and I’ve looked through all of my external drives. I have the “opening” music but that’s it.

Happy Birthday One Starry Night! Anywhere-is is going to be 12 this month! WHAT! :D

Isn’t it crazy? Seems like yesterday almost when I first started… I feel like such an old timer!

I know. We’ve been around. I still marvel at how much the blogosphere has changed since we started more than a decade ago. Eeeek!

I also notice that “old school” bloggers blog LESS per week/month than the “newer” bloggers. I wonder why that is?

posted on November 13th 2012 at 7:59PM CDT

I’m guessing it’s because we’re not trying to build a brand or a following–we just are. I’m not trying to monetize my blog. I took the PR link down which is ironic that I started getting tons of PR inquiries as soon as I did that. So… while I’d LOVE thousands of readers, I probably won’t get them because my blog isn’t a niche or something like that, it’s just my LIFE, you know? And not everyone finds that interesting. :) Now ironically my Luv link is going to be a super PR link, but you know. I got cool free stuff so yay.

Happy happy blog birthday! 11 years is no small feat!

posted on November 7th 2012 at 3:02AM CDT

Thank you! Things sure have changed over the past 11 years in the blogsophere that’s for sure! When I started just having a domain name meant you were a BIG DEAL lol.

posted on November 11th 2012 at 12:37AM CDT

HA HA HA! Yes!!! People with domains had to have the best designs and be in the best cliques (I never did get into woogoo) and run a UBB. Good times!

posted on November 6th 2012 at 6:45PM CDT

Yay! Congratulations. :) And what, you used to do podcasts and those podcasts had opening music?! Dang. I love the redesign too!

posted on November 7th 2012 at 3:03AM CDT

HAHAHA yes! Omg I’ve had sooooo many projects here over the years, upwards of 30 if not more. Every two years or so I end up making a forum too lol.

I’m late, as usual, but happy birthday, OSN! I remember a LOT of projects. Pagan@. Forums. A webring? I vaguely remember a webring… but I don’t know what it was!

That’s the one! That was aaages ago!

I tried to count once from memory, and I’ve had at LEAST 30 projects around here over the past 11 years. If not more! Pagan@OSN in itself had it’s own various projects and then all my hostees and I went through a project phase for awhile there… ahhh the good ol days!

Ah, hostees… I met some pretty awesome people that way.

posted on November 8th 2012 at 6:42AM CDT

Same here!! I love coming across some of them and seeing how when I hosted them they were teens but now they are adults with families of their own… I am SO OLD NOW!
