Ten years ago today I began this blog. I'd been thinking about it for quite a long time, but was hampered by the lack of easy access. I'm easily frustrated by technology that doesn't work, and didn't care for Blogger. I wanted to use Moveable Type, but that would have involved changing ISPs. Since I've had the same email address for over 7 years, I didn't want to change that, either, so elected to just wait for TypePad. I wasn't something enough to be a really early adopter, but jumped on the first week in December, 2003. Here are a few of first day's posts:
In Which I Introduce Myself; a look at Extreme Gardening; Wild animals--Beavers Within Commuting Distance of Google--and TypePad too; A Cure for Intrusive Thoughts A Meme Goes Round and Wrong: How to Sing the Blues; and my favorite sport explained, What is Dressage (I should go back and add photos); supporting literacy in the 3rd world.
Total Posts = 6,075
Lifetime Pageviews = 3,069,777
So there you go, ten years of December blogging.
I am still enjoying blogging and working on the blog is doing what I thought it would do.
