A year of blogs

This week marks the first anniversary of my converting this Web site to a weblog using the free online tool known as Blogger. It has made updating the site vastly easier -- which has encouraged me to post many more useless things here.

Like this entry, for instance.

A year ago I wrote about redesigning the Web site for the company I worked for at the time. Three months later, they fired me and a whole bunch of other people in the second of three rounds of massive layoffs triggered by the tech-stock meltdown. So, during 2001 I established myself as a freelance writer, and re-established myself as a professional drummer. Now, my schedule is more flexible, I'm having more fun, and I make more money.

Good thing I got fired.
