It occurred to me this afternoon that I missed an anniversary of sorts: January 18th was the 10th anniversary of the Worldview Weblog. Now, granted, Worldview was not my first weblog (though those efforts have been, perhaps blessedly, lost to the vagueries of the internet), Worldview represents my longest running and most consistent effort of any of them.
I have discovered many things in that decade of writing, but I think the single biggest discovery is that, while opinions are fine, most people actually don’t care, and that the value of the weblog is in sharing interesting, unique things people are doing so that other people can benefit from them being done.
That’s an interesting observation to me because, believe it or not, that was one of the reasons I started blogging in the first place. It turns out that’s also an idea I want to return to. I make no promises, but watch this space for the further pursuit of that goal.
