SEB has officially been around for 11 years now.

bird-hawk-looking-at-clock-timeIt just occurred to me that I missed SEB’s 11th anniversary. On December 2nd, 2001 I launched what would become SEB thinking I’d give it a shot for a few weeks and then it would slowly fade away as I lost interest. Over the years I’ve come close to shutting it down a couple of times after frustrations with maintaining it or periods of inactivity and yet here we are still spouting out the occasional missive on the Interwebs.

I’m not as prolific as I once was (and I’ve never been particularly prolific at the best of times) and some of the projects (SEB Podcast) have progressed in spurts, but considering how it’s not made me rich and famous yet I think it’s not too shabby an effort. I can’t promise you it’ll last another 11 years, but there’s still some bits and bobs left for me to pontificate upon before I call it quits for good. My beard — though oddly enough not my hair — is a little grayer than it used to be and I’ve added a few wrinkles from when I started. I don’t know if I’m any wiser, but I’m certainly more experienced. It’s weird to dig back into the archives and read some of the stuff I wrote years ago. There’s only a handful of articles that I can remember off top of my head which makes reading some of the stuff that captured my attention fascinating.

So I’m a little late in announcing it, but here it is. Happy 11th Blogiversary to Stupid Evil Bastard!

  1. Congratulations! (Said the slacker whose blog is on hiatus…)

    I started blogging just after 9/11, have had a couple blogs in that time. You’ve been an inspiration to me. Really and truly.

  2. Congrats on 11 years! I know you’ve grown tired of the infighting in the atheist community and pulled back a bit, but I suspect many of us are still reading you. Yours was one of the first blogs I found shortly before I began blogging, and I still enjoy reading you. Here’s to the next 11 years!

  3. Here’s to another 11! I’ve only started dipping my toes into blogging, after several years of sitting on the sidelines. As I’ve said before, it was pretty much you, DOF, and the guys at UTI who inspired me to give it a shot, and who showed me that regular ol’ people can be pretty interesting when they say what’s really on their minds.

  4. One question though…..after 11 years, have you in fact figured out what the fuck is wrong with those people? I have some theories, but nothing solid….

  5. 11 years is a good steady run for anyone. But you have made it a challenge, a bit of humor, and a heck of a lot to think about. Keep her coming because even though I don’t comment a lot I read you almost every day!
