It's Our Anniversary!

On this day in 2008, in the wee hours of the morning, I got a crazy notion; start a blog! And, Quirky NY Chick was born! I had no clue what I was doing. I still don't! Would anyone other than me ever see it? Would I get bored after a few months and quit? Well, here it is 2016 and I'm still in my tiny corner of the internet. I never thought this little thing of mine would still be around eight years later. 

In my time here, I've been to some great shows, heard some great music and seen some great performances. I've photographed some great artists. I've met some great people. I've learned that blogging is incredibly time consuming. There have been times when I've considered not doing it any longer...not posting as often as I probably should. But then, I tell myself, 'you can't put a lot of time into this' so I keep on chugging along. 

Thank you to those that have visited my quirky little world. Thank you to the artists and their reps for providing me with loads of great stuff to post about. Here's to another year...cheers!
