Believe it or not, I’ve been blogging for 10 years! I started when I was in university and back then, a few of us were blogging on LiveJournal. In those days, you needed to get an invite code from an existing LiveJournal member in order to start your own blog there. My first few posts were quite inane and about nothing much at all. My very first post on LiveJournal on 2 Jan 2002:
First entry. No idea what to write. The party last night was pretty fun. Watched ‘The Ring’, ‘Toy Story 2’ and ‘Moulin Rouge’ all in a row. The projector really made things a lot more fun! =) Think I should stop eating such unhealthy food. Must take care of my health. Opps. Time for dinner!
Clearly, I’ve learnt nothing in 10 years because I’m still eating unhealthy food and not taking care of my health. Besides the inane entries, I also did a lot of memes and posted the results on my blog. So it went on like that for awhile then eventually it was blogging about Kinky the cat, work, getting engaged, the preparations for the wedding, being married, our holidays, work, being pregnant and then the focus shifted to Anya. Along the way, I’m glad that I got to know a lot of people through blogging and there are some blogs that I have been reading for years now.
Although I really liked being able to lock certain posts on LiveJournal and allowing access only to selected groups of friends, I got quite fed up with the spam so I shifted to WordPress in July last year. I decided to import only the posts from when Anya arrived because my blog now is really all about the kids! My entries from before that time are still hanging around on LiveJournal though and I like to read through some of them from time to time.
Will I still be blogging in 10 years’ time? I have no idea so I’m just going to take it one day at a time! :)
