Happy Anniversary To Us

I Want A Little Fishie In My Bowl.gifOne year ago today, on January 18, 2005, a blog was born – namely, this one. Well, that’s mostly true – it was born in beta and launched on January 31st, along with 5 other tender young blogs – but the first full-fledged FishbowlNY item posted last year on this day, and that’s anniversary enough for us.

A switch from the Royal We: I’ve been writing and editing Fishbowl for almost ten months now, which kind of boggles my mind but in a very, very good way. I’m pleased to have been part of the team that has brought this blog to fruition – founding editor and former MB EIC Elizabeth Spiers, her trusty deputy Christian Moerk, the Fishterns, especially Jamie Frevele, Maureen Miller and Annie Karni; FBNY contributing editor Aileen Gallagher; the lunch-tastic Laurel Touby, whose largesse has fed many of us at Michael’s along the way; my fantabulous fellow bloggers with whom I have been proud to be linked; and all the FishFriends&#153 who have tipped, emailed, and otherwise made this thing go swimmingly along the way.

As the Rolling Stones* once said, it’s been a very good year. Thanks to all of you and here’s to many more!
