For a venture such as a personal blog, especially one that sees endless tinkering and change, there is an almost never-ending succession of anniversaries. The start of this, the end of that, a revision here or outright reconstruction there.
Today marks two years since I first implemented the 'blank slate' metaphor for the blog: the home page has no old content, nothing before 'Today', so that each day begins anew unburdened by what has come before. As I wrote at the time:
Now I can look at the blog and relish a fresh start every day, embrace the blank page rather than fear it. I can wonder "what has today got in store?"
While I have made a lot of alterations to how things work over the years (both on WordPress and here) I believe that this single change has been the most transformative for how I think about the blog.
