Three-fifths of a score of years ago, one writer brought forth on this Internet, a new blog, conceived in Boredom, and dedicated to the proposition that New-Wage/selfish-help/McSpirituality/alt-health scams and scammers were eminently snarkworthy, but mostly harmless, and largely irrelevant to the larger world.
A dozen years later, the writer is long disabused of the notion that all of the above are either mostly harmless or largely irrelevant. For she has seen that people have had their lives ruined and have even died at the hands of scammers (and yet the scammers scam on); and that Scamworld and politics are entwined in an unholy union...
Well, enough of that. Suffice to say that I have been on this fool's errand for twelve long years now: just another little dog barking at the caravan as it moves steadily on its way. (If you need a recap, last year's anniversary post offers a condensed version of Whirled history.)
And while I am deeply honored that there will be a Blood Moon held tonight in honor of Whirled Musings' 12th Blogaversary -- and not just any Blood Moon, but the Longest Lunar Eclipse Of This Century! -- what would really make my heart swell with gratitude would be a monetary tribute. Because there is still a Snark here, and it still must be fed.
Regardless of your willingness or ability to donate, thank you for stopping by, and thank you for your support over the years. I think I'm going to keep writing, because I think it is more important now than ever.
