I noticed today it’s coming up for 10 years since my first ever blog post – and it was an apology!
Well I set this Blog up many months ago just to see how it all worked. Then promptly ignored it for ages. But I’ve had a resergence of interest, particularly because I keep seeing things I want to make comment on, or make note of. My daytime job involves me in online publishing of paid subscription content, focussing on people working in the arts and entertainment industry. As part of that I’m the webmaster and main programmer for a number of large content-rich sites, and I also write an occasional column published on one of the sites, highlighting issues revolving around technology and the internet in the arts industry.
The two main sites my company publishes are Arts Hub Australia and Arts Hub UK. My column is called ‘Click to Start’. Behind the scenes I program, generally large, web sites specialising in content management and publishing, subscriber management and email distribution.
I posted this on 26 November 2003, what feels like a lifetime ago – indeed it is, our youngest child was born in 2006, so my blog is three years older than her.
367 posts and 10 years later I am not sure I am any more enlightened. Just older and greyer, whilst a little like Dorian Gray and thanks to WordPress’ continual improvement the blog looks better and better.
