This blog is over 10 years old

I'm going to break Rule One and muse a little on the past 10 years.

I've just read someone else thinking how to celebrate their blogs 10th anniversary and I thought I'd check this blog, and lo and behold, it's over 10 years old. I started my first blog in 1999, but it was on editthispage.com which has since been taken down. I have all the content though, and if I had more time I'd put it back online.

This blog started when blogger.com wasn't part of Google. My first post was about The Salmon of Doubt by Douglas Adams. Full marks to Bloomsbury for making a 10 year old link still do something useful. I can't remember if I ever did actually read it. I probably did.

I toyed for a bit with using it as a place to record comments that I'd put on other people's websites, so I could keep track of them, but I soon tired of that. 

Then, in order to make myself blog more often, I tried to blog just 10 words per day. Of course to think of exactly ten words that make sense takes a bit of time, but it was fun while I did it. I kept it up for a couple of years, but not every day by any means.

In Feb 2004 I started a blog for more technical things, leaving this one for random thoughts on books, music, photos and other stuff.

That is all.
