Happy 6th Birthday To My Blog!

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 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.

You can see some of my most popular posts here (by views and comments) and my full archives here – https://www.shaolintiger.com/archives/

    Congratulations! 6 years for a blog is almost like 80th birthday for a person. Keep it up to make it “a 100 years” 🙂 I’ll soon have my 3rd year anniversary, but I have attempted to blog already in Oct 2006… didn’t really get me. It does me now, although I sometimes feel to just let it be, but it’s addictive in a way, right? Becomes part of your life. Anyway, may I ask how much traffic do you have all together? And how much do you have now on average per month?

    Kuzco: Thanks dude 🙂

    LiewCF: Haha yah not many of us around.

    Mark Leo: Thanks! Will do some updates on the car, got some minor problems at the moment.

    Huai Bin: Thanks bro, yah sometimes feels like too long.

    TianChad: Hehe thanks, certainly older – not sure about wiser.

    Serge Norguard: Dude…WE ARE OLD.

    xes: Hahahah no la.

    suanie: Thanks 🙂

    ken: Thanks and I will!

    My Kafkaesque life: Yah I guess so, in blogging terms it’s certainly a pensioner. It’s tough to keep going sometimes, but yah it becomes part of life and it’s worth it. You can see my traffic by clicking on the Sitemeter graphic in the sidebar.
