5 Year Anniversary - Over by Dere Link Blog

While I've been posting here on my blog "Why I Oughta..." (nee JoinCross.com/blog, joincrossblog.com, rhodesschool.com) since 2004, but I also have been (apparently) posting over on my link blog for five years.  I was just reminded by Tumblr (which is where my linkblog is run currently) that I crossed the five year mark over by dere.  

And, yes, I wrote the phrase "Over by dere" - which happens to the name of my link blog.  Think of this as my 'favorites' feed from the old Google Reader days.  You can keep up with my posting over there at: http://www.parrillo.info/.

I shared the details of Over by Dere here on my main blog a few years back where I mentioned the name. The name is straight-up Chicagoese, but for those of you who aren't aware, it roughly translates to:
Over by dere. i.e. "over by there," a prolix way of emphasizing a site presumed familiar to the listener. As in, "I got the sassage at da Jewels down on Kedzie, over by dere.'

Here on the main blog, we'll be marking 15 years next February 16th, and *that* feels like a significant number worth celebrating.
