Anniversary Remembered

I think this is the first time I’ve ever remembered my anniversary during the actual week of the anniversary. Usually I’ll remember it the next month, or two months later, and then it’s too late to say anything because I’ll just draw attention to how lame and forgetful I am.

And no, I’m not talking about that anniversary. I’m talking about the anniversary of the first post on this blog, my first blog post ever. The day I became, for good or ill, a “blogger”. That first post was on February 7, 2002, and six years later (give or take an extended hiatus) I’m still chugging along. This poor site is sadly neglected, though, since I now run five blogs (one two three four five), and this one finds itself not at the top of the list anymore. But it’s still fun, because this is the only one that doesn’t have a subject, so it’s the only one where I can just post whatever pops into my head. I’m trying to get into the habit of blogging short blurbs about the interesting things I find as a float through the web during the day, but that’s a hard discipline to pick up. I just have to keep at it.

So happy sixth birthday to the Computer Vet Weblog, and let’s hope I keep it up this time.
