My Weekend Blogiversary

Kittens, holy crap. Sunday is the fifth blogiversary of Dorothy Surrenders. Five. Freaking. Years. My baby’s old enough to go to kindergarten. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, it still boggles my mind that this thing I started on a whim five years is still here, and that you’re all here. Together we’ve made a happy little corner of the internet where we can talk about TV like a beloved family member and drool (respectfully) over talented women in tank tops. And, during those hive years, my have we grown. I’ve gone from having a wee blog to blogging for AfterEllen to becoming a Twittering fool and now even being a Tumblesbian. None of this has been good for my sleep patterns. But I also wouldn’t change it for anything.

In years past I’ve celebrated with milestone with a around-the-world roll call, unsolicited FAQ, The StraHOTski and ruminations on anonymity. But this year, I think I’ll give back. Yes, I’m giving you a gift on my blog birthday. See, I can’t do anything right.

We haven’t done a giveaway in a while, so let’s just see how it goes. But everyone loves free stuff, right? So, I have one copy of “Black Swan” on Blu-ray to give away. This is your chance to relive all the batshit ballerina breakdowns and hallucinatory girl-on-girl make-out sessions in beautiful hi-def in the comfort of your own home. It is a two-disc set with tons of special features and a digital copy included. And, again, this is the Blu-ray, so you’ll need a Bly-ray player or computer that plays Blu-ray of PS3 that plays Blu-ray – you get what I’m saying here. But I will happily send it to wherever in the world.

If you want to enter, leave a comment with 1) your email (feel free to spell it out if you’re worried about spam), 2) your state/country (what, I’m curious) and 3) if you really want to indulge my curiosity, how long you’ve been reading (any old timers in the five-year club?).

I’ll pick a winner at random next Friday, so feel free to enter until midnight Thursday night. I know it’s not much, and I wish I could send you all one. But this is just my little way of saying thanks for being interested in the random things that rattle through my head on a daily basis. I read all of your comments and tweets and emails and while I can’t get back to all of you as I’d like to, I appreciate them more than you’ll ever truly know. Happy weekend, all.

p.s. Even if you don’t want to enter the contest, please feel free to still tell me where you’re from and how long you’ve been reading. I’d love to know.

UPDATE: The contest is now closed. Thanks for participating and the very, very kind blogiversary wishes. Y’all are the best.

Happy Blogiversary Ms. D!

I've been following you for the past 4 years...so yeah I came for the tank tops and the general amount of hotness but then I stayed for the insighful writing, the humor and of course the tank tops and the general hotness factor ;) Don't know how many of your followers can say that but you were one of the reasons (the other AfterEllen community) that brought together me and my gf (3 yrs and counting.. so Thank you!

My email ad is kc_red07@yahoo.com (it's zero seven)and I'm from the Philippines. I will not lie, I just discovered your blog last year. (I feel sorry for myself about that)But I'm back tracking. I spend my breaks at work either reading your blog or Glee fanfics. lol. Anyway, happy 5th birthday to your blog! :]

I hail from New Mexico which is kind of its own country in a lot of ways.

I've been following you on and off since spring of 2007 when I took a Queer Blogging (this is an actual class at my school) but I started following you daily in the summer of 2008.

TaylorBoi said...

I already wished you a Happy Blogiversary on twitter but I will say it again (albeit late and in a separate comment)!!

Happy Blogivesary Ms. Snarker!! Your wonderful wit makes the world a little awesome-r every day.

Love you, and here's to another 5 years :)

I've been reading, oh for about 3 years? i'm bad at remembering things. (I'm in the US btw)
I even read the blogs about actresses or things that I'm not particurlaly interested in because I think you're a thoughtful person and I generally agree with you. On a few occasions I've even become abit misty-eyed.Happy Blogiversary!

I've been writing whatever comes to mind since I was a kid but I wish I could sound off as elonquently as you. You're my morning coffee :)

Almost 5 years Dorothy. I've been reading almost the whole time. I have to read your blog. Have to since I live in Portland, ME and while we are a pretty happy crew of lesbians out here, there just isn't any better way to get the skinny on beautiful tank topped women. So, Happy Blogiversary. And Hell yeah I would love the Blu-Ray.

Congrats! And well done!

I've been trying to remember when and how I discovered you, but I'm not sure. A year ago maybe? Knowing myself, I'm guessing it was during my exams either spring last year, or Christmas the year before. Anyway; I'm glad I did, and I don't think anyone has influenced my schedule more than you have. You made me watch 30 rock, Glee, a whole bunch of movies, Academy Awards... And thank you for that! I may not have a social life anymore, but at least I have you, and that's all I need to get me through the cold Norwegian winter. Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.

Oh, and my e-mail; wobbyen(at)hotmail(dot)com

My email is chakramchaser @ hotmail . com. I live in Canada- a really lame, medium-sized mostly straight city in Canada. So your blog is like a little gay refuge. :P I've been reading for a little over two years, since I stumbled over it in some of my tentative I'm-only-just-coming-out Internet searches.
Congratulations on an amazing 5 years! You probably know this, but your blog isn't just about respectful drooling. You do a lot of good, thank you for being honest and out and hilarious :)

Hi there! I've been reading for about two years now. I'm from the upstate NY area. I think I stumbled upon your blog through other queer blogs. I've also spread your recaps of Rizzoli & Isles as they are something I look forward to returning as much as the shows return.

Happy Blog Birthday!

I'm currently living in Mass, but I found your blog 5 years ago when I was living in southern Utah and have read you now from Maryland, South Korea, a second stint in Utah and a mountaintop in Pennsylvania. Checking in on your blog has been one of the few constants during these crazy years, cause you never fail to help the crazy be more bearable. Thank you : )

I'm a 22 year old college senior from North Carolina and I've been reading you faithfully nearly every day for the last 3 years. You have made my college experience so much more delightful I can't even tell you. You and your fellow ladies at Afterellen held my hand as I tiptoed out the closet and have been living it up and hugging me with your legs in friendship ever since! ;-) Words cannot express my gratitude, but here they are anyway:

Thank you.

Tom said...

Happy Blogiversary, Dorothy. I'm Tom and I'm from Detroit (well, it's suburbs). I've only been following for a few months. The reason a straight male like myself found your blog is because I was Googling "Rizzoli & Isles" recaps and it led me to your recaps on AfterEllen, and it made me say to myself, "Jane and Maura act they're into each other, so let's see if the lesbian populace agrees." Sure enough, you did. I found your recaps to be hysterical and it led me to your your other articles and then your amazing blog. It's scary how I feel the same way about so many things as you (in a good way). Your tweets don't disappoint either.

I would love to enter your contest, but I already have a copy of "Black Swan" (it was worth every penny, in theaters and on DVD). I just wanted to say congratulations on five years of blogging and all the success it has brought you.

Happy anniversary Ms. Snarker!

I am not interested in batshit ballerinas, but just wanted to say congrats!

I have been reading your blog religiously for about 4yrs or more! Yes, religiously. What isn't religious about hot women in tank tops, your TV wife and smart discussions on our shared pop culture experiences?

I don't even remember how I initially found your blog...it was before AE, but so glad I did. Can't and frankly don't want to imagine my online time without you. :) I find that we pretty much share the same opinion on things 99% of the time. And although, it can be exciting and mind-opening to be challenged by other views, sometimes it's just nice to know that you aren't alone out in this big ol' world of ours.

So, congrats again! Sending a virtual bottle of some swanky champagne your way and lifting a glass in toast to another 5 years! Huzzah!

Thanks so much for being who you are and continuing to put your wit and wisdom out there. It's a precious thing.

Warmest virtual hugs coming atcha,

Dear Dorothy Snarker,

Happy Anniversary! My life and Tina Fey knowledge would not be as rich with out you.!

tbone2727@yahoo.com (for the trombone not the steak)

I live in the USA. I have been reading your blog since about September 2007. During that time I have lived in Faribanks, AK for graduate school, Hudson, OH with my parents between grad school and the Peace Corps, the Republic of Macedonia for the Peace Corps for Sept 2008- Nov 2010, Hudson, OH with my parents for the holidays and I have now been in Chicago, IL since Jan 2011.

Your blog has been and will continue to be one of the best things I read almost daily. I particularly enjoyed your thoughts on Hilary Clinton in June 2008 and for alerting me to the Hilary Sexism Watch and for introducing all of us to Sarah Haskins. Alaska and Macedonia were not super gay friendly places for a newly out person and it was amazing to be able to go home and at least be part of a safe internet community of which you are a prominent member. Thanks for all you do.

I may not always be the loudest ally on the planet, but I speak up whenever the opportunity arises--and reading an awesome blog such as yours is probably the easiest way ever to offer my support. :-D

Keep being awesome!

May naked ladies dance before your eyes this sunday.

5 years?! By my calculation I've been reading your blog for between 4 and 5 years - time has indeed flown. I did not realise back then that you were just a babe (and still are Ms Snarker...no doubt about that).
You've made me laugh, cry, see red, and then go red on nsfw occasions. In fact, the only thorn in my muffin-moulded side every friday is that i have two snarker- free days coming. On the flip side, something to look forward to on a Monday.
I'm about the same age as you (judging by the fact that I remember everything tv and pop related from your childhood), live in England, and am straight, gay, bisexual...confused. I feel more together than the world around me though, and find solace and sanity (or madness on my level?) in your blogosphere.
Sack sleep and keep going!

Happy Blogiversary! (although I feel like it should be blogaversary. just sayin'). I can't remember when I started following you, but I know I've been here for a couple blog-birthdays, so maybe 2? 3? I started reading when I still lived in Italy, but I have since moved to the US, and I have to say...yours, along with many more sites I visit regularly, eased my transition when I first moved here. The internet, strangely enough, was the one thing that remained unchanged in my life when everything else did a 180...so thank you for being a constant in my internet life!

Holy crapola! I went back to your birthday posts and I remember the first one! So...does that mean...I've been following you for 5 years?! WAAAAAH?!

....

Wow. I've never thought of myself as an old-timer.

Happy Blogiversary.

I've been reading from the Chicago area for about a year. Not sure what led me to your site..maybe a link from afterellen.

I thoroughly enjoy your wit, humor and writing. And the pictures aren't bad either..now I remember what led me here (Rizzoli and Isles, HELL-O!) Yes, I hope with a new season starting you'll get us through the season with some laughs, since it's going to be tough to watch them hook up with anyone but each other!

Ms. Snarker, your writings often make my day. Your blog is the only one that both my wife and I read daily (Note: we really only read two blogs each EVERY day, the others are news and my community blog!). I love it when we can look over at one another on our iPhones and know she is reading your post by the giggles and/or smiles, etc. My favorite is Tuesdays, hers is Thursdays...

Thank you for providing my feminist, lesbian, queer, thoughtful, witty, snarky, honest, inclusive daily fixes. You're a star, DS.

I found your blog a couple of years ago while I was looking for awesome people to follow at Twitter. I really enjoy your blog because it's very well written, funny and, of course, filled with hot girls in tank tops. Yay! Happy 5th birthday!

WOW. sharing the same birthday month with this blog, is that fantastic or what? We April babies are awesome :)

It's been 3 or 4 years since I've started following you? Ahhh, time flies when one is having a good time. Now I feel the need to reread your old posts from day one!

Congrats!

I had to look up how long I've been reading your blog, because I realize I'm terrible at estimating time... and hey, what do you know? I've been reading you for five years! Now, I'll admit: Sometimes other stuff gets in the way and I don't check in for a while. But I always come back and I catch up on almost everything. :) Thank you for sharing your thoughts (and pictures of women in tank tops) with us!

Happy anniversary to the Divine Ms Snarker. Oh but what a glorious day it was when I stumbled (in a mist of sobriety) upon your blog - wish I had stumbled earlier! Thank you for 1 year (nearly a virgin) of insightful and intelligent blogging - btw spell check insists I change it to 'bogging' (as bad a iPhone). May there be many years ahead.

All the best and have a wonderful celebration.

Awesome!!!! Congratulations!!!! Reading for 2.5 years! Shortly after I came out a friend said to me, "oh my god you should totally check out this blog...it's Tuesday. You'll like it...trust me!"
So, I really don't want to write my email down for fear that some bot will grab it from the internet even spelled out!!!! BUT, this is so totally worth it fmataatgmaildotcom. I read your blog everyday after I get home from "class." I laugh out loud...and yes that deserves to be spelled out. You rock my world a little every day. Thanks and happy writing.

I've been an avid reader of your blog for most of the five years. In fact, though I've given up blogging and, by extension, blog reading, yours is the only one to which I’m still committed. No small feat given my limited attention span and my reticence to commit to anything for than a hot minute.

Thanks for entertaining (and sometimes educating)!

I have been reading your blog for about 3 years, it makes me feel better about my life when I can't talk to people about things. You know, all your friends watch Glee because Blaine is so hot, and I'm waiting for the Brittana moments.

Looking forward to reading more of the wonderful things that come out of your mind!

Up top for 5 years. Highfive*..I'm not really a highfiver...bu you're worth it. Let's see...I got my old laptop in 2006 and found your blog shortly after, so I'd say four to five years.

I started following you about a year ago when I was a Freshman at college. I am from Santa Ana, CA in the U.S. and my email is ssanchez609@gmail.com. I know a year may not seem like a lengthy ammount of time but it has been, nevertheless, the wildest and most fantastic ride of my life. I love ALL your posts and I use you as an example in my Women's Studies class to get points across. Keep up the amazing posts and thank you for sticking around! :D

Sue F said...

I've been following you since Kate Clinton gave you a shout-out on her site. You and T-Lo are my main relief from unrelenting activism/politics and keep me from losing my mind. I love pretty much everything you love, but I especially swoon over, in no particular order: Brittana; anything from the Whedonverse; Top Chef; and Rachel Maddow.

Happy Anniversary and THANK YOU!!

So this is Saturday and I'm comment #148. Either people LOVE you or the idea of getting something for free is a mighty force and the power of Snarker compels them. (Is it okay to make a Jesus-type joke on Easter weekend? I'm willing to risk it.)

Anyroad, I like free stuff too. 1) my email is anna.winterkorn at gmail.com
2)Boston, MA, USA. I live in the area of Boston where you can't swing a dead cat without hitting a lesbian 3) I did a search through my email account because I know I emailed your blog to a friend when I found it. I have been reading your blog since October 2006.

So, mazel tov! And Happy Blogiversary.

skrailly said...

Dear Dorothy,

I've been reading you somewhere between 4 and 5 years, considering I'm now 20 and I found your blog, amoung others when I was admitting to myself that I was gay at 16. At the time, I remember thinking it was absolutely magical that not only were there queer women out there writing, but they were attracted to the same things in women that I was; androgyny, emotiveness, intelligence, without mentioning specifics like the curve of their back and nicely shaped shoulders. All of which takes a departure from the traditional celebrated playboy-esque physical characteristics. I think Dorothy Surrenders was definitely a big part of my development into the queer woman I am today. Most of the other sites I don't find myself frequenting as much anymore, but I visit Dorothy Surrenders almost religiously, even on the weekends (just in case.) And on the rare occasion, that I have missed a day, I'm overjoyed by the fact that I get to read two of your posts that day. Thus, happy blogiversary!

- Bianca from FL, by way of Seattle.

p.s. I miss the Pre-L’s.

certification something.

nice weekend!

Becky said...

Hello Ms D!
I haven't missed a post since 2007, and you even replied to an email I sent once correcting your grammar. Which was a little forward of me, but I knew you would understand.

So, I have not actually seen Black Swan yet, as my gay manfriend wants to see it with me and has been far too popular to make time over the last few months. Surely, out of pity, as well as to celebrate your blogthday, I think you should send the movie to me. If you put your address on there I'll even return some Australian tim tams with coffee dunking instructions as a thank you.

Been reading for probably 4 years, and enjoying it!

I'm happy to say that I am from Portland Oregon!

I've been reading your blog for over a year now, and it's because of you that I watch half of the things that I do on TV! So thank you for sharing your uber gay knowledge with the world ...don't know where I'd be without you :p

Here's to another 5 years :)

Hello Ms. Snarker! I've been reading your blog religiously since 2007. Your site needs a warning for the danger of soda coming out of your nose due to laughing. When everyone in my life was telling me being gay was fixable or a sin, I would go to this site as a refuge. I live in St. Louis, MO. My email is mlrodgers07[at]hotmail.com. Happy blogiversary and heres to many more!

Good Job!
I've been reading for.. somewhere between the 4 and 5 years as well, my 'momma dyke' was all HEY LOOK AT THIS BLOG! and then I had wonderful things to look at on the interwebs all the time, with entertaining, skilled writing included. This might be the only blog I consistently check up on.

Currently Florida, but I'm actually from the Dominican Republic.

Hi Snarker-

I've been reading your blog since my girlfriend showed it to me, 4 years ago or so.

I lived for 3 of those years in Texas and Georgia, so your blog was a saving grace in a world of homophobes.

I used to check you and AfterEllen regularly, but you're the only blog I read on the regular now.

Keep the pretty pictures, oh and great writing coming!

Congrats, Ms. Snarker! I came (again and again) to your blog and to Afterellen for the Rizzles last year but I stayed because you are a great writer--interesting, insightful, humorous, brave--and horny like the rest of us. Many thanks for sharing! I raise my glass to much future success in all you do! Looking forward to your subtexty S2 R&I recaps in spite of the sausage parade.

God, I have no clear idea how long I've been following you, but it's gotta be at least 2 o 3 years. Not only do I love your super high quality (both in pixels and esthetically) photos, I also find you very witty, and funny.
Oh, and I'm from Baja, México.

All the best for you and your blog on the 5th anniversary of its conception! May you both live long and gay ;-)

I've been following you for a year or so, I think, but reading previous posts is one of my favourite procrastination techniques... ;-)

Anyway: it is great! Which is further proved by the number of your followers from all over the world! I am a second girl from Poland on the list, who would have thought :)

Happy Anniversary!
I hail from Vancouver, BC and have been a fan for four years or so. Even tried to help you hook up your TV from afar hahaha.

Keep up the great work!

oh, my... FIVE years, FIIIIIVE... Ok: kudos, my friend. You make me feel old, but I love U anyway. I've been following your awesomely good taste in women (brains AND talent included, thaaanks) for, at least, 3 years (my longest relationship... should I worry?... Of course, I should!) and, to be honest... Your devotion to Ana de las Tejas Verdes and Es mi Vida (yeees: I'm Spanish, from the beautiful and exotic Canary Islands, to be precise) make me believe that we are, somehow, related... Twins, maybe?

Hey Dot. Can I call you Dot? Okay, Dorothy, I've been checking in here for probably about 2 years, from Calgary, Canada. Happy blogiversary!

I've been reading your blog for about 6 months. I found it after I started following you on twitter, which I started because of the amazingly hilarious tweets sent to Jane and Maura. Also because I enjoyed AE recaps you did of Rizzoli & Isles. The wit and sarcasm in your posts was a refreshing change and so I keep coming back for more.

I live in Ohio. email is al3386 at yahoo dot com.

I found you through AfterEllen, and I've been following you for probably two years now! Tank top Tuesdays are still one of the highlights of my week.

Hi Ms. Snarker. I've been reading your blog every day for the past 3 years now. Is one of the first things I do when I wake up (I usually need something to cheer me up for the rest of the day). Well, I live in Lima, Perú (awesome place, awesome food):)
My email es: damepapa23@gmail.com

Thanks for all the laughs you keep giving me.
