10 Years

This blog is 10 years old. I’d planned to write a retrospective and publish it on the anniversary, but I completely forgot. I did post a new version of Chuckie Egg the day before which was far more entertaining.

In the first post, entitled “Go!”, the blog was running on WordPress and I complained that I didn’t have time to write my own blogging software. After 10 years and 518 posts, the blog runs on my own blogging software that is written in Go. I like to pretend that was clever foreshadowing.
