Since it's already November 5th somewhere in the world, let the festivities commence!

(Some, if not all, individual tributes aren't set to publish until after midnight ET.)

Party on!

Robin said...

I feel funny getting all intimate, yet, because we kind of just met. But, well.......I think you're cute.

Ello said...

Celebrating Moonie and Obama! How much better can it get?!!!!

ChrisEldin said...

This is really fun!
Ditto Ello!! Now, everybody in the whole wide world will remember Moonie's blogiversary!
:-)

Froog said...

I am going to do a few posts on my blog later, honestly..... but first I have to go and get drunk to celebrate you guys electing your first non-embarrassing President in my lifetime. Well done!

Absolute Vanilla (and Atyllah) said...

Ha, when I nitwit. I completely forgot to join in the Moonie celebrations - however, it must have been fate, because my blogpost for the day is actually all about Moonie - and her haiku competition!

Yeah, go Moonie - and Obama - and thank you, Americans!

writtenwyrdd said...

I'm a fairly new reader of all things Moonie and I am very impressed with the inside publishing information and the sheer entertaining posts as well. Congrats, Moonie!

Precie said...

Yay, moonie!!! Yay, Obama!!!

Such a great day!

Kiersten said...

I'm mostly a lurker--I get all shy when I'm the new kid.

But really, you're wonderful. Thanks for doing what you do ; )

Travis Erwin said...

I didn't arrive until recently as I was trying to avoid any and all distractions from my writing, but the great lunar one, Moonrat's charm proved too much for me to resist. Now I never miss a post.

cindy said...

moonie! moonie! moonie!

Natalie said...

Happy anniversary, Moonie:) You deserve all the love.

Nathan Bransford said...

Happy Blogoversary! And what a great day for a celebration.

Janet Reid said...

Happy Anniversary Moonrat!

Sherri said...

I've been away from the blogisphere for a couple of months to focus on my book. You were the only "industry" blog I checked while I was away.

Have a wonderful day, Moonrat. You deserve it.

Marcella said...

I tend to be a lurker too, but I can't be shy on Moonie's Anniversary:)

Happy Anniversary Moonie!!

Ulysses said...

Moonrat:
Yours is one of those blogs I check every day, and read every word. It's not just informative, it's bloody entertaining.

Thanks for that, and happy anniversary.

Julie Weathers said...

Blast, I wasn't invited. I need to check my spam.

Julie Weathers said...

but first I have to go and get drunk to celebrate you guys electing your first non-embarrassing President in my lifetime.

How do you know that? Just curious.

Julie Weathers said...

Congratulations, Moonie. I have really come to enjoy your blog tremendously. Of course, the first thing that caught me was a story about Momrat. In the following months, you made the cut every time I deleted more blogs from my list so I would focus more on writing and less on blogging.

You are dearly loved. I will try to post a Martha and Tilley story in your honor tonight. That is the highest honor anyone gets.

Ello said...

I'm back from my second root canal escapade. I hurt. But I'm here for my Moonie!!!!!!

What a great day to celebrate 2 great things!!!

Jeanie W said...

Dear, dear Moonie - Happy Blogiversary! Thanks for all the great blog posts and events and stuff.

My word verification is "bleake." Boy, does that not fit today!

Dave F. said...

Congratulations on your anniversary and best wishes for the year to come.

cindy said...

Stephen Parrish said...

Happy Blogiversary Lunar Mouse.

debra said...

Happy Anniversary Moonie!

You are one of my daily clicks. How could I possibly start the day without my Moonie fix!

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

I'm a quiet lurker, but I read you every day. Well, every day you post! ;-D Thank you for a great blog! Happy Anniversary!!!

And I get to celebrate my own publishing news very soon! And it's a doozy!

Precie said...

ooooh, kimberley drops a bomb in the comment stream...soooooo cruel! :)

Conduit said...

Ten thousand years from now our descendents will uncover shrines to a great goddess, the Rat of the Moon, and they will marvel at the devotion she inspired in her disciples. Or something.

Thanks for two great blogging years, Moonrat, and here's hoping for many more. :)

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

Sorry about the bomb, Precie!

If you want to "friend" me, I'm doing a locked post about my news today or tomorrow on Live Journal. Gulp.

Marie said...

Hey folks--I wrote this post for the blog, but it doesn't seem to have made it over to the official anniversary page. Doubtless the fault is mine, (I'm pretty sure I emailed someone, but it is the day after election day and I'm pretty tired), but here it is. http://mariemockett.blogspot.com/2008/11/edass-unmasked.html

moonrat said...

you guys rock--i'm sorry today's been so crazy at work and i haven't been able to check in more often and sooner!! i'm so excited by EVERYTHING!!!!

Julianne Douglas said...

Moonie,

I can't thank you enough for all the time you spend encouraging us writers and helping us understand what it's like on the other side of the desk! I'm a faithful reader of your blog, and though I don't comment often enough, I so appreciate your advice, outlook and great sense of humor! Thanks for all you do, and best wishes for continued success.

Happy Anniversary!

The Mischief said...

marie--there was a miscommunication, but you're on the blogroll now! :)

Many happy returns of the day!

Your blog is a blast!

lotusloq said...

Yea! Happy Moonrat day! I'm mostly a lurker here, but I appreciate all the help I get. Thanks! You Rock!

Pamala Knight said...

Totally awesome! Happy Anniversary dear Moonie. Have a cocktail (or two) to celebrate. Scratch that--maybe a pumpkin muffin, ummmmm......muffins. Congratulations.

I'm a lurker, but happy Blogiversary.

Anya said...

Happy Anniversary, Moonie! I love your blog. It has been a huge help and funny at the same time. Gonna go do a little dance and drink a little martini in your honor. Ahh, heck, you definitely deserve a big martini. Cheers!

Kaytie M. Lee said...

Well, this is lovely and deserved! Congratulations, Moonrat, on not only your anniversary but the cultivation of such a friendly, energizing plot in the garden of the internet.

:)

Mary said...

What a momentous day!

Happy, happy blogiversary!! :)

Linda said...

Happy Happy Blogiversary Miss Moonie! I left you a love letter on my blog, but want to drop you a line here, too. Thank YOU for all you do on so many levels - go GIRL! Hope you had a marvy day - I sure did. Peace, Linda

McKoala said...

Aw, how lovely is this?

I'm a bit of a lurker too, but congratulations and I hope you have a wonderful party!

Kim Kasch said...

Okay, I'm being green and recycling and reusing - plus one of my sons is away at UofO - so I couldn't get a new one.

But check this out - the sentiment is still the same:
”Happy Blog Day”

Trixie said...

I'm a newish lurker - but I just wanted to say thanks for all the great advice you've given on your blog. And your blog is fun to read! It really means a lot to have a great source for publishing information. Happy 2nd blogiversary Moonrat!!

Daniel W. Powell said...

Thanks for all of the great insights, Moonrat. You do the industry a great service...

Melanie Avila said...

Happy Blogiversary! Yours is one of my favorites, and not just because of all the wonderful advice. Can't wait for year three. :)

Jill Corcoran said...

congrats moonrat!
Thank you for your generosity of time and thought over the last 2 years.

moonrat said...

Whirlochre said...

Lurker-gone-berserker says 'hi'.

rlshoff said...

I've just been following for a couple of weeks, but what a great site! Happy anniversary!

LitWitch said...

Congrats to the Moonrat!

May your whiskers never droop.

;-)

Kimberley Griffiths Little said...

Okay, okay, Moonie, I'm fessin'! My agent says I can spill the beans. And it will be on Publisher's Lunch sometime but I'm not sure when.

I'm giddy. I'm thrilled. I'm pinching myself - and truly cannot quite believe it. This has been YEARS in the making.

Scholastic Press is giving me a fabulous THREE-book deal!!!!!

Two Middle-grade novels and one Young Adult. Titles: THE HEALING SPELL, SECRET RITES OF THE GODDESS, and THE TRAITEUR'S DAUGHTER.

You'll find sushi, quiche, canapes and bubbly in the corner so help yourself everyone! Oh, and brownies, of course. With milk.

laughingwolf said...

been ill for a few days, maybe trying too hard for nanowrimo? ;) lol

i may not meet their deadline for 50K words, but will complete the tale i started, even if it takes months :O

grats seem to be in order for you, moonie :D

Chumplet - Sandra Cormier said...

I'm sorry I missed the party, Moonie, but you know I'm thinking of you and your awesome blog.

Mmmmmmwaaaaaahh!!!

Ebony McKenna. said...

From a fan down under,
Happy anniversary Moonrat,

Love Ebs

Stewart Sternberg said...

Okay...sometimes it's just good to join a party. Happy Anniversary. Hey, remember the time we went down to Leary's and you bet that I couldn't drink from a bottle of wine without using my hands? Okay, it never happened. But dammit...it could have. It really could have.

Julie Weathers said...

Martha and Tilley at Moonie's Party.

So sorry I'm late with this, but Martha and Tilley did finally make an appearance.

Kate Lord Brown said...

Go Moonie, go moonie, go moonie (doing the dance that *really* embarrasses the children). Congratulations. Sorry late to the party (NaNo = NoBlog). Hope you at least got your dumplings! x

The Anti-Wife said...

Moonie,
The Hawaiians held me captive and wouldn't allow me to post until now. Sorry I'm late to your party. We all love you and appreciate your wisdom and expertise! Keep blogging baby!

Hugs!
Hugs!
Hugs!
