6 long years ago on October 19th, 2004 I made the first post on this blog – which started the legacy that is still here now.
Yes – 1,209 Posts, 16,723 Comments, 6,081 Tags & 25 Categories later and I’m still here 🙂
Blogging has been an interesting journey and one that is not over yet. It’s had ups and downs and sometimes I’ve felt like packing it in, but most the time I don’t.
It’s interesting to read back through your own blog archives and see some of the experiences you’ve journaled in your own little space on the web.
In the early days my entries were a lot less organised, very chaotic, very personal and probably very much more interesting than they are now. I was traveling a lot for work during that time too which meant I had a lot of random stuff to write about.
I used to do some epic yearly summaries, check them out here:
- My Obligatory 2005 Summary – With Pictures! – Part I
- My Obligatory 2005 Summary – With Pictures! – Part II
- 2006 The Year That Was – A Summary – Part I
- 2006 The Year That Was – A Summary – Part II
- 2006 The Year That Was – A Summary – Part III
My first anniversary post was here – Happy Birthday to ShaolinTiger.com
The 2nd here – Happy Anniversary to ShaolinTiger.com!
And well there’s been no more anniversary blog posts since then. I feel like it’s time for an update soon, a fresh theme, some new features..I’ve been running this theme (which is the 3rd iteration) since June 2007 – so it’s getting a bit long in the tooth, back when WordPress was at version 2.2.
