Ten years gone (and a little more)

Tenyears

Wow. I guess time really does fly when you’re having fun. In fact, it flies so fast that I don’t even notice when a major anniversary (or, if you will, blogiversary).

Remember how I’ve been mentioning that I can’t believe it’s been almost ten years since I started doing this? I’ve been droppoing these little remarks here and there over the last few months not out of any sort of plan, but rather because I really couldn’t believe that I had been at this almost ten years. In fact, I couldn’t believe it so much that I actually missed my tenth blogiversary.

No, seriously. I really did. It was four days ago. Look at my first post ever on this blog (well, my first substantive post, anyway, and it was on the predecessor of this blog on Blogger). Look at the date: December 11, 2004. Yes, that was the cold, gray, dreary day when I first sat down and set up a blogger account. I then started writing, and the rest, as they say, is history.

So, yes, it’s been ten years. It’s been more than ten years. A whole freakin’ decade!

I feel so old.

On the other hand, I’m not so old that I don’t plan on continuing indefinitely. They’ll have to pry the keyboard from my cold, dead hands. Except for today. Today, I think I’ll take a break from producing new material. I do have a grant deadline coming up, after all.
