Leaping into Asisaid's Second Decade

By Tim Butler | Posted at 12:04 AM

I managed to overlook my blog's anniversary, February 21, which marked my tenth year of blogging. Given that I missed that date, it seems the second best option is to commemorate that milestone by mentioning it on Leap Day. The blogosphere has certainly changed since I first started writing here and I think services like Facebook have drained some of the life out of blogs. Nevertheless, I still find the whole blog concept intriguing and worth continued exploration.

I hope everyone had a good “extra day”! ;)

Any idea which of us was blogging first? I started a site in 2000 that had to be manually updated every time I added new content. I went to work for HM sometime in 2001. I switched from manual HTML to MovableType somewhere right around there for the original sakamuyo, but don't remember exactly when.

I think you started blogging before I did, but I'm not certain. I didn't start following Sakamuyo Log until summer 2002, when I started looking around for blogs to read and add to my blogroll. (Initially, I started mine just to play around with the concept and see what a blog did.)

Back in the day when you could follow “every blog” if you wanted. ;)

Yes, pretty much! I miss those days: fewer blogs, but more really interesting, high quality ones.
