Ten was probably plenty.

If you happened to scroll to the very bottom of this site today — Saturday, March 13th, 2010 — you would have seen this note in the footer:

ten years

It is very, very hard to believe that I have been blogging for ten years.

My very first post was not very interesting. At the time I was using blogger. (That was long, long before they were bought by Google.) In May of 2001 I converted the site to the (now-defunct) greymatter, and then just after 9/11 I switched to MovableType. Then in February of 2005 I switched to WordPress.

Ten years. Wow.
