The first entry I ever made in this blog (back when it was on LiveJournal) was on January 20, 2001, right around this time of day, which makes today its fifth anniversary. Sometimes (often) can’t believe I’m still doing this — I’ve threatened to throw in the towel enough times. Must be something wrong with me.
To celebrate, I’ve spent the last few evenings going back to the start of the archive and unpublishing a ton of stuff — almost 1/4 of everything (work in progress – have only made it up to 2003 so far). For the first few years, it seems like I paid little attention to whether posts would be interesting to anyone but me. Heck of a lot of bloviating over the years, trying to trim some of the pointless posts. There’s probably still a lot of embarassing stuff left, but the archives are in better shape than they were.
Sweet Amy even called me on the way to work this morning to wish me a happy anniversary!
