On April 22nd, 2001, I started this blog. The first pages were hand-coded HTML. I was so green I didn’t know that permalinks were simply anchors on the page, so the first few months there were no individual post links. My first words:
Blogging. The new media term taking the Net by storm. Short for Weblog, to Blog is to put up a web site that chronicles your thoughts, your activities, your life, either in the hopes of enlightening yourself and others, or because your ego is the size of Montana.
I’m hoping it’s the former.
I’m still here. Thirteen years, probably a couple million words, thousands of posts, and I’m not quite done yet.
So happy 13th year, one week anniversary to me.
