Wow, 16 years of blogging. For the record, this is the 992nd post.
Does this mean my blog can drive?
16 years ago I wrote my first post about RSS. I recently just added RSS to a static site generator that had a blog component. What is old is new again, indeed.
Blogging has taught me so much. How to write. How to promote. How to investigate a problem. How to describe what I do to non technical people. How to handle gobs of traffic. How to handle tumbleweeds (aka no one visiting my blog).
I tell everyone I meet to blog. Not for other people, but for yourself.
Having a record of my life (not the whole thing, but at least some aspect of it). Having a chance to help other people. Even just making the time to sit down and think about something deeply. All huge benefits.
Sometimes my posting schedule is less frequenty (especially when I’m writing elsewhere, as I am now on the Transposit blog), other times I speed up (I wrote 100 blog posts in 100 days, it was great).
Either way, I’ve enjoyed this blog immensely, and appreciate everyone who swings by to read a post, leave a comment, submit to an aggregator or subscribes to new posts.
Thanks for 16 great years!
