A decade and a half

Our reader — and our friend — Fillyjonk has completed 15 years of this crazy avocation:

Back when I started in the heady days of knitblogging, I thought, “You know, maybe I’ll have legions of fans. Maybe I’ll even get a book deal. Maybe I’ll be FAMOUS!”

Well, I suppose God gives you what you actually need, sometimes: I’d hate fame, because with fame would come scrutiny and critics and trolls and all of that attendant ugliness.

“Fame is a vapor,” said Horace Greeley; “popularity an accident, and riches take wings. Only one thing endures and that is character.”

And FJ proves this almost every single day.

    True, all of it.
    Congrats, FJ!
