My blog has a post on February 8th, 2004, but actually, I really didn't "get it" until April 8, 2004, when I left a comment on VentureBlog... my first blog comment on the blog of someone who was doing this as a somewhat professional exercise. Up until then, I didn't know that anyone was blogging anything other than relationship issues and their trips to Cancun.
I was just looking for a reason to keep writing... because I had written a book for college freshmen that never really went anywhere because it never got published. One day, I'll e-book it or something.
Who knew what it would turn into.
I don't know the best way to celebrate a blogiversary, so I'll just do some highlights from the last year of blogging... my favorite posts and some red letter days.
So, let's see....
I changed jobs... that was probably the biggest thing.
Starting nextNY was huge, too, but that was sort of an accident. I'm very lucky to have met all the people I have from this group. Watch out for these people this year... I think they're primed to make a very big impact on NYC.
I debunked Guy's quiz... funny, b/c I'll be seeing him at CommunityNext on Saturday.
I pondered MySpace Tom's death, too... but people seemed more interested in the bird video.
Oh and the Pillow Fight was fantastic.
So thanks everyone... I appreciate your comments, links, feedback... and offline or digital friendship. May your startups succeed, your posts get tagged and your Voki speak highly of you...soon, very soon.
