Fourth Blogiversary

Right after celebrating 100 posts written by Kaelah, we come to another milestone: the fourth blogiversary of Ludwig's Rohrstock-Palast. I launched this blog on the 25th of January 2008. "Oh my, time sure flies!" and "I can't believe it has been that long!" are terrible clichés to use, but for fear of sounding hackneyed, that is exactly how I feel once again on this day.

I suppose that "Ludwig's Rohrstock-Palast" is becoming a somewhat inappropriate name for the blog, though. For the past two and a half years, more than half the blog's lifetime, Kaelah has been my faithful co-author. And she has been much more active than me recently. However, "Ludwig and Kaelah's Rohrstock-Palast" is overlong and awkward, so that is not really an option. We could just use "Rohrstock-Palast", but that would probably be too cruel on our mostly English-speaking readership, even for my sadistic tastes. So, I guess we will just keep the current name. After all, I was here first, and I am the top.

We have some interesting stuff coming up for the next year of blogging. Some more behind-the-scenes reports, some videos that are long overdue for editing and publication, some philosophical ramblings which will hopefully lead to lively discussions. I plan on resuming my movie reviews and website reviews after a long hiatus. I also plan on doing some new and different things when I get back to regular writing again, perhaps a bit of a depature from the style I am known for. But let's not talk about unlaid eggs - you will see it when, and if, I get there.

In the meantime, I would just like to thank you all for your interest in my (now Kaelah's and my) blog, for your comments and emails, and for making it all worthwhile.

Thank you all for your kind words!

@ Ludwig:
I don't care whether my name is mentioned on the sign at the front door. Being the dachshund that I am, I have other ways of marking my territory. Ahem, just to clarify that, I'm talking about loud barking every time someone walks by or rings the doorbell! ;-)

@ Spankedhortic:
KaeWig sounds cool, like the name of an ancient warrior. I think LudLah isn't such a good idea, though. Because to me it sounds a bit like the name of a Teletubby – and I'm afraid that this might attract the wrong audience. ;-)
