This is a personal reminiscence, no valuable content here.
I’ve been blogging since October 10, 2005; when I started using Typepad, an early blogging platform. Today, August 8, 2018, I stopped my Typepad account. Funny, they kept track of every payment I made, my first was on November 25, 2005, the day after the Thanksgiving Holiday here in the United States. I wonder if they had a Black Friday sale. More likely I had extra time to upgrade my blog.
I did a lot of blogging and built a lot of websites over the years. These were my Typepad websites:
- WillAtWorkLearning.com (my blog)
- LearningAudit.com and LearningAudit.net
- And two or three others (more personal projects)
I’m not done, but I outgrew the Typepad infrastructure. Now I’m a proud WordPress user. And I still have a few websites:
I want to thank the folks at Typepad for many happy years! I want to thank my readers too!
Later this month I’ll be celebrating Work-Learning Research’s 20th anniversary! I’ll have some more reminiscing to do and more thanks to give!
For today, I’m enjoying turning the page…
Here’s a picture from the Wayback Machine, which captured exactly one day of my blog in 2005, November 5th:
One more thing. The very first sentence I ever blogged was this one:
What is the median age when children are potty trained?
You can read that first post here (all my posts have been moved to this website).
And maybe that first sentence was my destiny… I use questions a lot and I’m always trying to get the crap flushed down the toilet!
