Blogiversary today... On this day thirteen years ago I made the first post on this blog. I haven't posted every single day, but I'm close to that. This post will be the 13,914th post since I started this thing. When I started, way back in 2005, blogs were “the next big thing.” That hasn't worked out quite as many people thought it would, but it's worked fine for me.
If you're a regular reader (as about five of you are! :) then you already know this blog is mainly aimed at friends and family. But, you might say, that's what Facebook is for! And I say: a pox on Facebook! I can't stand the damned thing. I have an account there, but it is almost completely unused. These days all I use it for is to see posts that people ask me to look at (generally by sending me an email link).
Nevertheless, it's hard for me to accept that I've been doing this for thirteen years, and that I've written almost 14 thousand posts. Crazy!
