My Blogiversary


Oops. I missed my own blogiversary, which was on March 7 of this year. I have now had this blog for over two years now. I haven’t written as much as I’d like, but I’m doing my best here.

My first post was oh so creatively entitled “Hello” and in it, I confessed my love for Russian author Mikhail Bulgakov. (For the record, I love Bulgakov even more now than I did two years ago, since I’ve read a lot more of his work at this point in time.)

In honor of my belated blogiversary, I thought it would be fun to look at the different taglines I’ve had for this blog. Back in the day, I started this blog as an overworked study abroad student and my tagline was “Not your average study abroad blog ™”. (Yes, complete with the trademark symbol. I thought it was cute/fun.) Then I came home from my study abroad and that tagline didn’t work so well anymore. I went with “Languages, History, and other random tidbits” before quickly changing to “Languages, History, Russia,” which I stayed with for a long time. I only recently changed the tagline to its current incarnation, “Resistance is futile” (which any Star Trek fan worth his/her salt will immediately recognize). Basically, I discovered finance and economics and realized that languages, history, and Russia was not fully adequate to describe my diverse interests. The current tagline is supposed to convey how incredibly irresistible my blog is – once you find it and start reading, you can’t stop. 🙂

Thank you to all my readers out there, whether you’ve been reading since 2011 or just discovered me last week. I really appreciate all of you and I hope you enjoy reading the blog.
