In a few weeks I will be commemorating a special day in my life and I don’t have a word to describe it. It’s a situation that our parents and grandparents and never dealt with: Blog related anniversaries.
You probably don’t know this but it’s been almost two years since I first discovered the blog of the girl I married. Before that day we had never met, in fact we had never heard of one another until I clicked the link that took me to her blog. This is an important date and yet I have no word to describe it because meeting your significant other via blog is a relatively new phenomenon. “The day I discovered the blog of the person I later married” is too long to put on a greeting card and “blogversary” is just unimaginative.
I’m calling on you for help. What we need is a word that we can all use describe the first time stumbled we upon the online presence of someone who became an important part of your life. Consider it the electronic version of the day you met. You can use the comments to suggest a term.
For the record, this person is responsible for setting the Be the Boy Slackmistress chain of events in motion. I’ll tell the full story once I have an appropriate word for it.
