Happy 3rd Birthday!

3rd Birthday

Exactly three years ago today, 10th May 2004, I started blogging. So ?Happy Birthday? to The Big Blog!

My first post went like this:

My friend Dave told me about blogging so I thought ‘Fuck it’ and am gonna give it a go. We’ll have to see how long it lasts. Hmm now to find stuff to put on it. ? adem

I think that?s how a lot of people start, and quite a lot of the time that will be where it ends, a one post blog floating away in cyberspace. I?m happy that I?m still blogging, and even though I?ve come close to giving up several times I?ve always pulled through and I?m proud of the blog. It may not always be the greatest reading or give the biggest insights, but I?m happy I?ve got somewhere to record my thoughts and to look back over from time to time.

Cheers Dave (no longer a blogger).

    Hey, happy anniversary. Three years is a great feat in blogging. And yours has become one of my favourite reads.

    Btw, having lurked from the feed reader a bit recently, I hadn?t seen the great redesign yet. Very good, very fitting for a birthday.

    Hey Hey welcome back Nils!!!

    I saw that you had your internet connection back as you were back on Flickr. Will we see you posting to NDNL anytime soon? I?ve missed it.

    I borrowed the ?image header under CC? from your blog. Hope you don?t mind but it helps when I have nothing appropriate, and also gives each post some structure.

    See you soon.

    To be fair, a stag night has always appealed to me more than a Hens Night, those things are just scary
