This blog is 8 years old today.
Doesn't time fly....... it seems like only yesterday I took my first tentative steps into the blogosphere, with this brief post.
And now, here we are, almost 1400 posts later, still going strong.
My posting frequency has dropped significantly since the heady years of 2009-2012, and this will be the first year since 2007 that I've posted fewer than 100 times.
I blame Facebook.
I keep hearing that blogging has had its day, and that we should all be, like, down with the new kids on the block of 'soshal meejah'.
I don't agree. This blog was my first love and as such I won't abandon it in favour of younger, trendier upstarts, with their inane tweeting and poking.
FB and Twitter are the fast food dives of social media.. the McDonald's or Burger King.
Blogs are much more like a fine dining establishment, with a la carte menus and silver service, where you can pull up a chair, relax and enjoy the experience.
So, Happy Birthday blog! Here's to your continued good health, and I'll try be a more consistent blogger in the coming year.
