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.
