20 Years of Blogging #

The first proper blog post on this site was 20 years ago today. It lived under a different URL, I didn’t register persistent.info until later (when .info was a new-and-shiny top-level domain). It also looked different (I don’t have a screenshot of the first version, but I switched themes a few months later) and was published by very different software (Movable Type 2.64), but there is continuity from then to today.

Later that day I imported a bunch of older programming journals, thus the entries go back almost 25 years. The first few years are not really blog posts, but it’s been nice to have snapshots of early work, even if they’re not all gems. I’ve been backfilling a projects page, and the posts also serve as tangible artifacts to link to, even if the project itself is long-dead.

The trend for posts per year is looking encouraging when looking at the past decade, here’s to a few more (while computers still work).
