Ten years ago today I wrote my first blog entry. Some of my friends keep up with internet trends and had jumped on board this thing called blogging. So I gave it a try myself. It started out more as an occasional, personal update. But the most interesting this is that it got me writing. I hadn’t done much writing on my own prior to this. In fact, my parents and/or teachers at one point thought I was so bad at writing that they got me a tutor. I think it had more to do with the fact I wasn’t particularly interested in “planning perfect paragraphs”. In any case, blogging has turned out to be a great outlet for me.
In case you’re looking back through my archive, this isn’t the blog I started ten years ago. However it is an outgrowth of it. And I have also back-posted a few things I wrote before I launched this blog in the fall of 2006.
I had tentatively had in mind launching some new features today. However personal life circumstance have prevented any work being done on this front in the past couple of weeks. So these have been put off, hopefully to be retroactively launched at some point in the not too distant future.
