Eighteen Years Ago…

On this day in 1999, I joined a substantial number of people in starting a blog. Then mine was called ‘blivet’. blivet was on EditThisPage though many were using other hosts and software such as Blogger. This was long before whatever has been proclaimed as ‘The Start of Blogging’ like ‘War Blogs’, ‘Mommy Blogs’, etc. It was a longer form, prior to the idea that you could use 144 characters to communicate something besides a grocery list.

Happy 18th anniversary to all the bloggers there at the start and the friends I made then. I will not attempt a listing as I will forget someone and feel horrible.

Here’s to 18 more!
