Celebrating 1000 Posts To This Blog
This post marks a major writing milestone for me, it is post 1001 on my blog. The blog has actually been hosted in three different places in it’s history but its migrated from server to server with reasonable success. All those 1000 posts still exist but many of the links are broken.
I started writing this blog with these objectives in mind:
- To share my insights, hints and tips
- To act as a personal knowledge management archive that is easy to search and share links to
- To develop my ideas through the process of research and sharpen them by forming them into hopefully coherent prose
- To learn to write
What I’ve discovered over time though is that whilst all of these objectives are still true the most important reasons I write is not on the list. I’ve found that writing is fun, especially writing what I want, on my own timescales, with no agenda and no constraint.
I will be celebrating today with my eldest daughter – Steph – we are off on holiday for a week on the east coast. We went camping there together about 12 years ago, thankfully it’s not changed much. Steph has her own blog which she will be releasing to the world sometime after her finals, currently it’s in ‘stealth mode’, I bought her the domain for Christmas thewaywelivenow.com
The picture is of ‘little Steph’ climbing on the rocks at the northern end of of Filey Bay, all of those years ago!
