Axodys.com is 10 years old today. I began my first post on January 24, 1999 with, “I’m finally starting to make a little progress on my site here.” And in the intervening years I’ve held that sentiment with surprising regularity.
I spent the last week or so revisiting and tagging the posts from 1999 and made some interesting discoveries. For one thing, by today’s standards the majority of my early posts look like a day’s worth of Twitter tweets in form and content. In those early days I mostly used this blog as a personal journal documenting my day and occasionally shouting out to my friends. Today there are other services like Twitter and Facebook that handle that type of communications far better anyway.
I don’t post here as much as I did in the early years, but I like to think when I do post the quality has improved a bit. I want to start posting a little bit more regularly here again (and maybe even get to 2000 total posts by the end of the year since I’ve been stuck in the 1700s for literally years), but we’ll have to see.
For that small handful of you that have been following along for all ten years thank you for tuning in. I hope it’s been interesting and at least a little entertaining if nothing else. Here’s to another 10 years!
