Ok I just had to cheat an make up a reason to post. But this is my 300th post, this blog has been going for more than 5 years (25 Feb 2003 was my first post, those heady days of university). that’s 1992 days, so an average of one post every 6.64 days. (my goodness that’s less than a post per week).
In that time I have been through 5 jobs and finished a university degree, been in 2 countries and moved house 7 times.
I’m sure there’s some other interesting facts I can pull up about the time since I started this weblog, but one of the more interesting ones is that I’ve been going longer than our esteemed leader Rod, who recently decided to give up on blogging.
I’ve got a lot of sympathy for that, I’ve battled the same feelings, albeit that I’ve never been close to as prolific a writer as Rod. But I’ve always decided to persevere.
Two main reasons
- This blog is for me and no one else, sure others read it (I think) but the primary audience is me. I still look back on key posts and remember what my life was like, or how many options I had, it allows me to study the past and use the lessons into the future.
- I’m not a very good writer. This might sound a bit of a reason not to write, but on the contrary I think it’s the prime reason to keep practicing, hoping that one day my brothers skills with rub off and I can write almost as well.
So this is now officially a milestone.
here’s to the next 5 years.
