Excuse me while I grab a mo to give props to my co-editor of 5ish years Gottalaff. Gotta has been more than generous in giving me credit on Twitter when someone compliments the blog or a post, and I don't have that opportunity, so here it is.
None of you care to hear me whine (I'm sure) about how hard doing this blog pretty much just the two of us is, but it's just a little whine. I'm on the computer approx 7a est going thru my RSS of easily fifteen hundred articles, checking hot blogs for news etc. Gotta usually checks in to check her email (filled to the brim every morning) of ideas, links and vids etc about 8a pst. We switch over between noon and 1 my time. Then the fun starts.
Since she is much more active on the Twitter thingie than me, she spends the next
7 10 (Edited by Laffy) hours or so juggling between her home life, a demanding Twitter world, working on various videos and posting the quality stuff she does. I come back later in the evening to tidy stuff up for the next day and toss up an Overnight. Repeat.
Fivish years of this non stop. Two short breaks for vacations. Minimal help from guest bloggers.
And yet she's rarely difficult (hey, no one's perfect) and much more inclined to work things out, be fair and treat me well and as a friend. I'm very lucky to have her as co-editor. I hope I do the same for her.
Thank you Gotta, you're a helluva gal.
ADDED by Laffy: This was a hugely unexpected and happy surprise!! Thank you Padlock, and of course, our wonderful readers for all the kind comments! I'm gobsmacked and experiencing full on blushitude!
I can say, without reservation, that Paddy is the best co-editor ever, and a wonderful friend. The feelings are mutual!
