May 2017 marks the 10th birthday of my blog!
It’s seen four URLs and numerous layouts. You can visit the archive and read my initial blog posts about apartment life, later posts about digital marketing, and ultimately about minimalism and productivity. For instance, here’s a piece from May 2007 critiquing a website. Today, I’d write that differently and include screenshots or a video.
You may not know that the first day of my blogging on May 14, 2007 was also the 18th anniversary of my father’s death.
Dad died on May 14, 1995.
He was 46. He had a heart attack.
This photo was taken that year. He sits in the middle, flanked by other attorneys in the law office he founded south of Boston.
Over the years, I blogged about him many times. A notable post is when I elaborated our connection to technology and why Dad’s the reason you’re reading this sentence.
He would be 69 today. I think about my father every time I write a new blog post. He is the reason I blog.
Thanks for continuing to visit, comment, and share.
