I started blogging on March 27, 2002. And why not?
My old Blogspot site got hijacked back in Nov. '03 by a lying, cybersquatting piece of garbage, but a lot of the archives are still available at the Internet Wayback Machine. Here are my first few days. If you'll forgive me for quoting myself, I have to laugh at this early prediction:
...you can still make money off the Web, if you're willing to bust your ass for a few years first. And if you define "money" as "any amount of money, no matter how small."
Nostradamus, eat your heart out! Well, beats digging ditches.
Just scrolling through those first few days... God, what a nattering boob I was. Unlike now, ha ha! I was telling people about Achewood way before you'd ever heard of it, too. And I still don't watch much Fox News. (Especially not Red Eye, weeknights at 2 a.m. EST!)
So here's to 5 more years of talking a lot of horse apples. [clinks glasses with nobody] And now, since the traditional gift for a 5th anniversary is wood, I'm going to watch some porn (just picked up Wild Logs, Music and Rearlicks, and The Last Wring of Scott's Gland). While I'm taking care of that, go check me out at Blowing Smoke and the Daily Gut. Please?Posted by Jim Treacher at March 27, 2007 05:24 PM
