Recently I read that the blog Dooce celebrated its 10th year. That is amazing to me.
According to an article about the milestone event, Heather Armstrong tells us that the main lesson she learned is to "first give someone the benefit of the doubt."
Tonight, I was reading another blog, the Ugly Green Chair, and noticed the 10 years graphic on the front page. The writer, Whitney Brandt, is another blogger who's been at this blogging thing for more than ten years.
It made me stop and think about how many blogs are going past the decade mark now. I'm not sure how many, but as I was digging around, I read that the first blog was started by Justin Hall back in January 1994.
Back in 1994, I bought my first computer, a Compaq Presario. I remember being so excited when I got AOL and set up my first email address. Little did I know that blogging had just been invented. Justin is still blogging too. Seventeen years blogging.
Can you imagine?
