10 Years (and 139 Days) of Blogging

Holy cowzers, have we come a long way!!!

So apparently I missed the official date earlier this spring, but would you believe that this year marks 10 years that I’ve been blogging?! Technically I think it’s been a little longer than that, but try as I might to dig up those very first posts that I did on comedic-genius.com pre-2003, the farthest that I’ve ever been able to go back is to the beginning of my LiveJournal days … May 7, 2003, to be exact.

And here we are, roughly 10.3 years later.

I first started blogging when I was 22 years old, still living at home, and was arguably still in my fairly early days of writing, whereas a decade later I’m staring down over 700,000 words and nearly 3,000 posts later on this blog alone, not to mention the seemingly countless other websites and side projects that I’m constantly trying to juggle! I’ve said it before, but I just think it’s kind of cool to have this vast repository of stories and random happenings that have occurred in my life over all of those years, and it makes me wonder what the next ten years are going to look like…

hope I’m still blogging in another 10 years when I’m … ughhhh, 43 years old?! By then I’ll probably have kids running around, and my wife and I will have been married for more than 15 years, and hopefully I’ll be writing those brilliant blog posts from my yacht out in the Gulf of Mexico after selling out in an amazing money grab that the world of humor columnists have never seen before! 😉

Whatever happens, with any luck I’ll manage to capture the best of the highlights right here … or maybe on another site, although given how long it takes me to do redesigns, probably right here! At the rate I’m going, in 10 years this blog will likely be over 2 million words and 5,000 posts, and though they may not have much coherency from one post to another, that’s my life and I like it just fine that way…  :mrgreen:

As sort of a fun, little look back at the last ten years, I took a dive into the archives and picked out these ten posts that stood out to me as reflection-worthy from the last decade. They don’t necessarily represent huge moments in my life, but I thought that they were kind of fun in a random sort of way and besides, 2,826 is a lot of posts to go through and tagging has only brought us so far, so this is about as good as you’re going to get!  😛

We’ll sync up again in 2023…
