It was exactly 10 years ago to this day that Phillyblog came into existence (I am totally making that up) and this is a nice time to reflect on who we were back then and what we have become. So on this anniversary of the rise and fall of Phillyblog (I am totally making that up) - maybe it is time to reflect on some of the fun times and good people that we met there.
Ok, so we know what went down with Phillyblog and it is too bad that it became so complicated. However, we must admit - (many of us) that we had a few laughs on that site.
I have always said that the Ikea thread was my favorite time on that site. In fact, I refer to it as the halcyon days of blog. All that Fluffles nonsense makes me misty and the photoshops of the dogs of Fairmount. I loved the thread where we all posted pictures of our impressions of the various characters on here. And the Macy's thread was by far the most useless waste of time that has ever graced this here interwebnets. I will admit now that I was Ethel Finkleberg and I was the one that attempted to find Sandy a nice Jewish girl.
So, on this amazing day when we reflect on the we who we once were (I'm totally making this up) - I wonder if I'm the only one that wishes this site could try to get a bit of the fun back. I realize that any site such as this will tend to get its nerd on, but I miss a bit of the funk - Abner Levy would agree with me on this.
By the way, Phillyblog happy hours were different, better attended, and slightly edgier....(Ok, I'm totally making that up).
