Blogging, Everyone Loves a Braggart...Right?, Giveaway Junkie, I'm Going To Chop My Ear Off Any Day Now, Vlogalicious

It’s My Second Blogoversary!!!

You heard me.

Today is my 2-Year blogoversary!!!

Now enough with the words and the reading and stuff.

I love you, Chipmunks. Thanks for somehow making year #2 even more awesome than the last.

Bloggers: Do you have a favorite blogging moment (either here or on your own blog)? Bloggers / All: Anything you’d like to see more of on Go Jules Go in the next year?

To help us celebrate this most chipmunkiest of occasions, I’ll randomly choose one commenter to win a pair of ‘stache glasses!

  1. Jules – Happy Blogaversary.
    My favorite blogging moment was meeting up with fellow blogger Peg-o-Leg. Except her family thought Sweet Cheeks and I were probably axe murderers or something (read about it here…

    Please do a cooking vlog of some sort, or maybe learn to juggle!! Just kidding. Another singing vlog would be great, maybe a duet with B-Man?

    1. Thank you, Katy! And I remember your meet-up with Peggles – I was so jealous! (For the record: Still jealz.) That is a superb highlight.

      Does juggling husbands count??

      B Man and I are planning a medley of covers of covers from Glee. His idea.

        1. I’ll probably be driving by the FOLLOWING weekend. We’re like two bloggers who pass in the night!

          Tell you what, on Sat night at exactly midnight, get a small frosty at our special, magical Wendy’s and I’ll go to our local Wendy’s and do the same thing (the pick-up window is open late) and it’ll be like we’re there together, right?

  2. Jules,
    Happy #2! What I’d like to see more on your blog: celebrity interviews. Now, I’m personally book until 2015, but if you could get the likes of Christina Hendricks, or Zooey Deschanel, heck, if you could also throw in Canadian celebrity Ryan Gosling for good measure, I think you would have an edge on the rest of us, minus me.

    1. Thank you, L to the C! Are you sure you don’t have to time to swing by the studio? My other favourite Canadian, Dave Coulier, just bounced. Alanis was so right about him.

        1. Non! Really? Eh? Crap! I just Wikipedia’d.

          Everything I believe in is crumbling. My blogoversary hat is slipping off my head in slow motion. Where’s the punch bowl?

  3. Making a request would be like stifling your creativity. Besides, if I had any good ideas for you I would have kept them for my own blog, which is currently starving.

    I have no specific favorite moment, just a warm fuzzy feeling from all the people I’ve met here and the fun comments and feedback.

    1. Might I suggest making a photo montage video? It’s the perfect excuse for not coming up with any other blog-worthy content for two weeks.

      The warm fuzzies are mutual my friend! Thank you, really!

  4. Happy Anniversary Jules! Can’t narrow down just one thing I love about your blog, as I love EVERYTHING about you and your blog! You bring a smile to my face every time!

  5. Oh, that video was just perfect! Such a slick production… how do you do that? Well done! And I am thrilled to see the bag-o-back-hair made the cut.

    Happy happy anniversary to you, Miss JD! The bloggy world is so much richer having you here. I wouldn’t change a thing. Keep on keepin’ on!

    1. You know my middle initial, K, really stands for K…um…K-Slick.

      I may have eliminated 56 1/2 minutes from the ‘Director’s Cut’ version of this video, but the back hair? Just couldn’t do it. Thank you for validating one of the hardest choices of my blogging career.

      Also thank you for making my blogging experience worthwhile and generally being one of the kindest people I know and blah blah blah…

  6. Hey there. How’s it going? Anything new? Hmm, I seem to feel like today is something. Something . . . special? Like I should remember today for some reason. Weird. Oh well, I guess it will come to me at some point . . . 😉

    HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY BLOGIVERSARY!! If I had champagne, I would toast to you right now. Instead, I’m going to go down to court to fill in for one of my sick colleagues. So at least you know that MY day is going to be awesome, no? :-/

    Congrats on 2 years, Jules. I am happy to know you (and drink with you)! You are an awesome friend and blogger. Love you!!

    1. Forgive me for not toasting to THAT (filling in for the sickly) – yelch. Boo. Hiss.

      It was a great honor and privilege to stick a mustachioed chipmunk on your head this year, Misty. Oh and also to know you. That too.

  7. It’s a tie: getting an honest-to-goodness Valentine in the mail from Rarasaur; getting comment-flamed by some human testosterone who implied that I was 99% vagina.

    Happy Julesiversary!

    1. I know what made that video extraaaaaa hot/awesomSAUCY and it rhymes with schmilykins (or Schily Schlind if you go the iPhone auto-correct route).

      Thank you so much 🙂

  8. Happy Blogaversary! Are you supposed to spell that with an “i” in the middle, like Rachel did on her blogiversary post, or with an “o” in the middle, like you did here, or with an “a” in the middle, which is how I’m leaning?

    This is the “Ask The Wizard” blog, isn’t it?

    (deeply moved, verkempt, eternal friendship, worshipping at your vlogging feet, still don’t get how to do the Bab’s sheet corner thing, etc, etc, etc.)

    1. Peggles, I’m so glad you asked. Rache and I just discussed this yesterday (because obviously). I’ve specifically chosen the ‘o’ because it makes me giggle and think of carnival games and cracker jack toys. “Win a bag o’ army men at the slam dunk-o-rama!!!!”

      It’s a shame more people don’t realize how deep and thought-provoking this blog is. At least I can count on you.

  9. But seriously…! That’s some intensive editing. Ouch. Great job – excellent flow to the video, funny but sincere. I am impressed. Happy anniversary! I’m sure year 3 will be even more epic.

    1. Editing? What editing? (I probably saw that “Hi everybody!” B Man/Uncle Jesse clip 25 times, and it made me laugh every time.)

      Thank you and YOU KNOW THAT’S RIGHT. Katy suggested we do a duet this year, but I told her you’re dead set on covers of covers from Glee, and I just think that’s in poor taste.

  10. Congratulations, Jules! You were brave enough to sing during one of your holiday vlogs, and it went so well that I’d love to hear more. How about a Sing-a-Post day?

    1. You do know encouraging me on this level is very dangerous? Please continue.

      No but seriously – thank you so much! Peppermeister and I HAVE been practicing religiously since early January… at the rate we’re going, I should be ready for a new song vlog sometime in 2015.

  11. Happy Blogoversary, Jules! May you have many more!
    Favorite blogging moment? Probably the very first time I screwed up my courage and hit “Publish” 🙂 (Freshly Pressed was also pretty cool! 🙂 )

    1. Double the smiles, double the fun, Leonore! Thank you so much!

      You know, I think my scariest ‘Publish’ button moments came much, much later. When people besides Babs were reading and I felt like I was baring it all.

    1. Dear Lily:

      Thank you very much for your interest in Go Jules We look forward to your continued support.

      As a token of our appreciation, we offer you… Um. Hugs?

      Go Jules Go, Inc.

      1. One day, you’ll be like Walmart! Start downgrading Pep’s hourly wage and benefits now. I advise Uncle Jessie to be your CFO. He knows where to bury the bodies (I mean bones, sorry).

  12. Two years! Wow girl, you really rock!
    Love the video and would love to be all Jules official with my own glasses. I wasn’t a lucky winner last year, but maybe 2013 will be the year…

  13. Faceless Loretta post made me laugh the most, but I don’t think I can stand another invasion of rodents to provide more hideous photos. Sheets, also. That was nerve-wrackingly fun. Congratulations on still having “it”. You definitely are getting better with age. ( I’d say like my wine, buy who are we kidding? It doesn’t even get to age a day.)

    1. Look at you, Babs, going all “Anonymous” after stealing the spotlight. AGAIN.

      People should know that that sheet vid was all done in one 5-minute long take. Because that’s how Babs rolls. And she didn’t spill a drop of her wine.

  14. Look at you go Jules…. BA DUN TSSSS.

    Seriously, congrats on two years. I am so honored to be one of your everythings. I am coming up on my one year, so there are a lot of special moments I will be reminiscing about here in the next few weeks!

      1. March 20th! I hadn’t even thought about it in depth until I saw your post. Now I am definitely going to have to come up with a vlog/blog celebratory masterpiece. EXCITE.

        OH GOD. A spelling challenge…I am going to go ahead and say b-l-o-g-o-v-e-r-s-a-r-y. I was good at copying in school.

        1. Ding ding ding! Right answer!

          I think my 1-year anniversary vlog is one of my favorite things I’ve ever done here. You’ll have a blast!

          OH SNAP. (Yes. I’m allowed to say that. I’m old.) March 20th is Uncle Jesse’s 3rd birthday, and well, it looks like that is going to be a day the blogosphere is NOT ready for. Not that I already have a whole thing planned.

          (I already have a whole thing planned.)

          1. Are you sure you don’t want to reconsider that whole “o” thing in the middle of blogAversary, Becca? Many people (dare I say “experts”? “scholars”, even?) think there should be an “a” in the middle.

  15. I love this video! Congrats on another year!

    My favorite post was probably Babs teaching me how to fold a sheet, which I think was also the first post I ever read here. Well technically I just watched it. That’s probably why I liked it. Reading is for suckers.

    1. Thank you so much, Jill! The sheet video / collaborations with Byronic Man are BY FAR some of the most fun things I’ve done, blog-wise. Babs is a rock star.

      And seriously. I didn’t start a blog so I could try to get all SMART with the WORDS and the SENTENCES and the THOUGHTS. I just wanted to pretend chipmunks could talk. (Psst…they can totally talk.)

  16. All I can say is…wow. Wowza. So fun and effervescent–just like you! I would enjoy seeing you define “effervescent” in a vlog.

    I feel like I need to take SOME credit for the lobster roll eating. Next time we’re eating a REAL lobster roll on Cape Cod together, wearing ‘stache glasses and holding hands. I’d say that’s a pretty good goal for your third blogging year.

    Now I’m off to post this to all my friends’ facebook pages–I counted three friends that made special appearances. Made me giggle.

    Thanks for all the blogging memories and real life good times! YOU ARE DA BOMB DIGZ.

    1. I like to think I define ‘effervescent’ every time I stare deep into the camera lens, confessing how much I love the cool, sexy way your body moves. You know I was talking to you, right?

      And I’ll totes eat my lobster roll one-handed. Hmm. You know after you type something and think you should go back and delete it? That just happened.

      Your slap bracelet pictures were BY FAR one of the most epic occurrences of the last year! You put the ‘o’ in everything, including BOMB DIGZ.

    1. Thank you so much, Audrey! I’m pretty excited for the next year. (Psst… I happen to know it will include a zombie costume in April, and a 50 Shades of Grey musical in June, so it’s looking good.)

  17. Happy Blog Birthday, Jules! Two years–you are a rockstar! What do we want? More cowbell, more Jules! Seriously, you have the best facial expressions on the planet, so any post that includes a series of perplexed/distraught/delighted Jules faces wins the day. And videos of you reading. And videos of your mom folding sheets. And pictures of chipmunks. Okay, basically just keep it coming. We can never get enough Jules.

    1. Thank you so much, Rian! Mayhaps next year’s blogoversary video will have a montage of us hanging out in NYC, eating delicious things (YES!)? I’ll even let you hold the cowbell.

  18. I feel like I gypped you out of a valid comment by responding via FB. I’ve been stressing over it all morning. I’ve come to make things right. Feign ignorance & express quasi-sincere delight at the following:

    Wow, that means you’re almost ready for big girl pants!

    And watching that video recap made me feel out of the loop. I’m like your brother’s new girlfriend meeting everyone for the first time at Aunt Ida’s 70th smiling numbly as everyone goes on & on about all the wonderful “remember that one time?” moments shared. Yeah, I guess I’ve got some catching up to do or I could totally like & say my fave post is that one where you did that thing w/the chipmunks & bacon while wearing that mustache. And your mom – I have a feeling the best stories always include her. 🙂

    Now I have to remember cool things about my mom to add to my posts. Damn.

    1. WHEW. Thank you for such a legit comment, none of which I have seen anywhere else on the interwebz. 😉

      And you came to the party before I drank all the punch! Bonus! My husband (“Peppermeister”) was asking me if this video was just stuff from the last year, or the past two years, and I said just the past year. It is overwhelming, isn’t it?

      But don’t worry. I say you only have to go back and read the last 100 posts.

    1. Peteyyyyyyy! STILL one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen. I would honor and treasure it always, but just having seen it, I feel like a better person.

      And thank you so much!

      1. What we really need to do is get you out here to a parade so you can get your picture taken with the giant walking mascot. THAT you would treasure for always. Because who doesn’t love having their picture taken with a giant walking pee cup? I know I do. 😉

  19. Holy shoot jules! I had a dream last nite u made it big time! Im slightly psychic si dont be surprised if it happens. In my dream you were on tv and i told someone “i remember her when she was just a rrgular old person” congrats!!! This is surely a gift from the universe! Congrats on your 2 year!!!!

      1. LOL. What?! No, you were famous, Jules! Everyone wanted to watch your little video blogs. I mean, it kind of sounds right, your blog has been increasing in popularity, right?

        Don’t worry, I think it was good, not prisonish. lol

      1. Oh man. This is embaressing but i didn’t notice your picture was a video. Even though you wrote enough with the reading and such. Oh my my. SO AMAZING! Made me remember all the great go jules go moments 🙂 I can’t believe you used so many of my photos! So nice of you! I am such a gojulesgo contest groupie 😀 Thanks for having such a great blog and being so wonderful 😀

    1. Well I can tell you I just brought him to the groomer and he walked in and immediately pooped right on the only carpeted area.

      Guess how he feels about going to the groomer?
