Celebrating A Decade Of Blogging (4 Days Late Edition)

We've just passed the 10th anniversary of this blog, started back in October 1st of 2006 in a burst of creativity by yours truly.  I was looking for an outlet for all the myriad thoughts going through my head at the time, and blogging struck exactly the right note for me back then.  It was the perfect precursor to writing books, though I didn't know it at the time.  Maintaining a blog, at a breakneck pace for the first few years and then much less frequently afterward, prepared me for the discipline I'd need as a novelist once I retired.

I do most of my blogging on Facebook nowadays, but I'll always appreciate what I learned here over the past 10 years.
