I missed a significant date in my history, and I can’t move on until I’ve given it 20 seconds of fame. Just over four years ago, I became a blogger.
Though I can find a few instances of “blogging” I did years before, I consider my official beginning as a blogger to be November 1, 2005. That was the day I wrote my first post for CultureFeast.com entitled, “Welcome to CultureFeast”. It was the beginning of something greater than what it was. It was the beginning of my engagement with the social Web.
I can’t say it’s been an easy road. Many bumps and bruises along the way. Far too many ventures out into domain names and blog creations I had no real interest in maintaining long-term. It’s been a wonderful learning process. I’m grateful for the friends I’ve made along the way. Some of the people I talk to most on Twitter I met through a Dallas Wordcamp in 2008. Social life for me revolves around blogging, Twitter, and (against my will) Facebook.
I have some ideas and strategies I’ve been praying about for the coming year. I hope you’ll stick around and see it through with me.
May God bless your own ventures and give you the wisdom to pursue what is best for your life.
