Happy Birthday to Me

Old Ain’t Dead is now a little over a year old. The accompanying twitter account @OldAintDead is also a year old. It doesn’t feel like a year has passed, but you know how time seems to fly when you get older.

In that year, I’ve published 260+ posts. If you’ve read any of them, if you’ve commented on any of them, if you’ve talked with me on Twitter, I want to thank you. Thank you for your time and attention and for encouraging me along this pop culture journey.

So happy birthday to Old Ain’t Dead. Here’s hoping for a successful year number 2.
