It's the 18th anniversary of when I started blogging. Because of the breaks and hiatuses I've probably actively blogged somewhere between 13 & 14 years, but it's good that I've always come back, even if it's taken a while.

This is my home on the web, my little corner of the internet where I can do whatever I want unbeholden to anyone else's rules. No stats, no metrics, no algorithms, just a place to write and to share with anyone who might be interested. Even if no one is.

It has survived not only my tantrums but the constant claims that blogging is dead. As long as people love to write blogging will always be a thing, what that thing looks like in years to come may change but it will still be there in some form.

@colinwalker many happy blogversary returns. I’ve only read since micro.blog but much appreciated.

Colin Walker replied:

Thanks John. Pre-2016 it was a different animal anyway, and then it took a while to settle into a format I really enjoyed so you didn't miss much πŸ˜‰

@colinwalker I don't know if it's good or bad but I've deleted/lost the early stuff I did, now I only got from 2009 I think (the first things I wrote on a website was around 1990-94)

Colin Walker replied:

It's the same with me. My first blog (2003-2008) is no more, although there are some snapshots on the Internet Archive, and any sites I had prior to that (95 to 2003) also no longer exist. I don't think it's any great loss.

We went out for a drive around the moors and through the Trough β€” just taking it easy but I felt wiped out after we got home so went lie down for an hour. Maybe it's the effect of the second jab. When I awoke I saw the news that Christian Eriksen had collapsed during Denmark's Euro 2020 match with Finland.

Alan perfectly sums up the human element, when sport no longer matters and there are far more important concerns. It's such a relief that Eriksen appears to be okay.
