Wow, today marks three years since I started blogging... my blog-o-versary I guess. It still feels like only yesterday I decided to jump on the bandwagon, create a blog and post my first entry: My first blog.... My intention was for this to simply be a personal online journal. Little did I know what I had to say actually interested people. I'd like to extend a big "thank you" to all those who subscribe and read my blog... I never expected to see Feedburner report that I'd have 600-800 unique daily readers of my blog (during weekdays... 400-600 on the weekends). Those numbers are quite humbling... so again, thank you to all my readers. A special thanks to those who have participated in the conversation by leaving comments... I love seeing comments (uh, not comment spam, real comments) in my inbox that kicks off a conversation. Over the last three years, my view on blogging and why its important to me. I'm not a firm believer that there's no better medium to get your voice out... be it your opinion, some cool new trick you figured out in Visual Studio, or whatever soapbox you decide to climb upon and go...

My intention was for this to simply be a personal online journal. Little did I know what I had to say actually interested people. I’d like to extend a big “thank you” to all those who subscribe and read my blog… I never expected to see Feedburner report that I’d have 600-800 unique daily readers of my blog (during weekdays… 400-600 on the weekends). Those numbers are quite humbling… so again, thank you to all my readers. A special thanks to those who have participated in the conversation by leaving comments… I love seeing comments (uh, not comment spam, real comments) in my inbox that kicks off a conversation.

Over the last three years, my view on blogging and why its important to me. I’m not a firm believer that there’s no better medium to get your voice out… be it your opinion, some cool new trick you figured out in Visual Studio, or whatever soapbox you decide to climb upon and go off on some rant. These days, my challenge has been to have time to write as there’s just so much I’d like to post… ah… maybe the next year will be a bit easier? There are so many things I’d like to do with my site/blog and I hope to have time to implement them over the next few months.

Alas, where does the time go…
