Happy belated birthday, blog

U1315234INPAfter reading Darren Barefoot's restrospective, I realized that four days ago I missed this blog's sixth birthday.

My youngest daughter was only ten months old when I started writing this journal (she was still a newborn when I registered the domain), and she's in grade 1 now. I was still in a five-year hiatus from playing live music with my band. I was still months away from being laid off, then working freelance, then getting a different job three years later.

At the time I simply thought that this Blogger thing was a neat tool Alistair had found. I had no RSS feeds, no podcasts, no Flickr photos, and no ambitions to write more than maybe once every few weeks on this page. It was just an easier way to post news than the old hand-editing method.

In the 2195 days since that first blog post, I've written 2514 more. And now, we're off into another November.
