I meant to mark the day with a post, but we were in the thick of kitchen remodeling and I haven’t been spending much time at my laptop for the past few weeks.
So I am a little bit late on this. But I wanted to commemorate it anyway because I still kind of can’t believe it myself.
My very first blog post at jane.org was on April 26, 1998. I have it archived somewhere. I wonder if I will ever organize all my old hand-coded html non-css entries from back in the day. The post was nothing too special, something about having dinner at my boyfriend’s house and watching the X-files together. Fifteen years have passed since then, and for some reason I have kept it up more or less continuously, with a few long breaks scattered throughout, particularly after having babies.
I am very grateful to those of you who have been around since back then. Thanks for putting up with my laziness! I’m not even sure why I do this. Oddly enough, the reason I started blogging in the first place (it wasn’t called that back then), was that I wanted to migrate my olde-tymie fanzine content to the web. So, before it was a blog, it was a zine, which I started in 1992. My zine was called “Hex.”
And now you know… the rest. Of the story. Good day!
