It was exactly five years ago today that I published this blog’s first post. (The blog was originally called Away With Words; I changed the name to Fritinancy in February 2008.) And you know what five years of blogging means: It means, my friends, that this is my Wood Bloggiversary.
For history buffs, here’s my very first “real” post (after some throat-clearing)—a challenge to name a 16-atom cluster of gold atoms.
And here’s a brief profile of Fritinancy readers, based on visitor statistics:
You want to know how the Volkswagen Tiguan got its name. You want to know how the Kindle got its name. You want to know how Superdry got its name. You want to know what Main Street means. You want to know what “urban” means. You want to know what “monumentous” means. You want to know what Givacolor means. You want to know what “bershon” means. You want to know how to name a golf course. You want examples of gross-out names. After the British royal wedding in April, the fashion-curious among you wanted to know what “gazar” and “fascinator” mean. Another group of the fashion-curious wants to know about Teenflo, the oddly named Canadian brand.
And year after year, people who read Fritinancy crave more information about desire paths.
