Amazing to think that on February 20, 2003 I started writing this weblog.
4 years seems an awfully long time to maintain something, but fortunately, it's been a joy. I've loved having a place to share ideas, and I hope for 4 more years.
I think, looking back, that the freedom to write what I wanted has been integral to maintaining this place for writing and sharing so long. Being able to talk about topics ranging from design and sketches to cycling and kids makes a huge difference in opportunities to share thoughts. Oddly enough, some of the most obscure, spur of the moment posts have been the most popular.
So, if you're a blogger looking for inspiration, I say write what you want to. Write what you love to write about. Be real. Life is too short to pretend, or to write what you think others want to read.
Thanks for taking time to read my words here, whether you're a regular, a lurker, or a one-time Google visitor. I appreciate your choice to stop and read my thoughts.
