D’oh! My blog turned one year old this past Saturday, and I was so thoughtless I didn’t even send it a card.
It’s been an interesting year. A place to speak one’s mind is a powerful tool, and I’m grateful to the internet for that. The 150 entries I’ve made during this first year must add up to at least 300 hours of time dedicated to researching, writing, editing, and responding to comments. It boggles the mind to consider it all in one retrospective lump, but I cry not over those well-spent hours.
I’ve met a lot of really interesting people through the endeavor, and the process of sharing technical facts and opinions helps to stimulate the ongoing development of my own thinking and working process.
All in all, I think it’s a win-win for writer and readers alike. Thanks for spending some of your valuable time here on my little piece of the internet.
