Happy birthday, blog!

Today my blog is 15 years old!

I *think* this is one of the first headers.


This time last year I was ready to quit it but thanks to the generosity of a friend, I found a better place to move it to. I also gave it a more grown-up domain name AND a secure connection.

I may not be the best blogger or the most consistent blogger and I am definitely NOT the most business-savvy blogger but I am definitely one of the longest-lasting bloggers.

Let’s go for another 15 years, shall we?

Kimberussell.com reader questions

Sometimes your thoughtful blog comments get flagged as spam. I feel badly about that, so from time to time I take a few out and answer them personally. Here are three comments that really stood out.

The first is from “Lessydog” from somewhere in Germany. They write:

One of the 18 indicators of women empowerment, sex ratio stands out as the 1st and most significant indicator for social.

Thanks for the advice. Sex ratio? I have no idea what that is so here’s a picture of some boobs. This particular pair of boobs always gets a lot of Instagram likes, so I think I’m on track.

One droops more than the other, but they’re real and fabulous!


The next one is from “AdrianaX” all the way from Indonesia.

I see your page needs some fresh articles. Writing manually takes a lot of time, but there is tool for this boring task, search for: (redacted)

Thanks, AdrianaX, but I think 2 or 3 times a week is a good amount for me to post. Not trying to set the world on fire here. I redacted your link, because that blog hasn’t been updated since August, and it needs some fresh articles. I know writing manually takes a lot of time but …

Finally, we have “MichaelDak” from Montreal. Bonjour! I hope you don’t mind that I edited your comment, because it was weird and had to do with buying essays, which isn’t a cool thing to do. But you finished your question with…

In addition, whereas I was hunting for this short article, I discovered that most people obtain residence functions, compositions, papers and essays. I don’t understand how secure it is actually and what excellent could be obtained in the end. Who faced this difficulty, create, you create or invest in? Were you caught by a sensei for this?

I am SO flattered, but I wasn’t taught by a sensei. Just the desperation that comes from looking for material in a week that contains not much material. When in doubt, always go for cheap humor! Or your spam folder.

Happy creating!

Anniversary gifts

Today is our fifth wedding anniversary! Who knows where the time goes…

To celebrate our 10 years living together and 5(!!) years married, we bought some gifts.

The the modern gift for the fifth anniversary is silverware. It just so happened that WM bought me a silver locket!

The picture on the left is from our Disney trip last November, the one on the right is the day we got married.


It’s a lovely piece and when I wear it, it’s difficult not to open it and say “SEE HOW CUTE WE ARE?!?!?” to everyone around me. I resist, though. I’ll leave the weird, gloaty stuff to another embarrassing blogger in her 40s.

The traditional gift for the fifth anniversary is wood. Of course, paper is a derivative of wood, so without even knowing it, I nailed the theme. I had a star map made of what the the night sky looked like on the day we were married!

I figure we’ll hang it somewhere in the upstairs part of the house, where we hang our classy stuff. Downstairs is where we put our Funko Pop figures and WM’s growing collection of Indiana Jones posters.

Disclosure: None of this is sponsored because I suck at blogging. It must be because I don’t have “a corona of golden curls surrounding” my head. (hork)
