Today marks 8 years of blogging at adammclane.com. (There was an earlier blog, I don’t know what happened to it.) And I’m marking that anniversary by going back to my very first post. Why am I starting this?
Why am I starting this?
Editorial note: This was my first post on my blogger, version 2.0 of my blog.
Perhaps many people start a blog because they are trying to prove to the world just how smart they are? Perhaps others do it so they can feel like someone is listening to them? Perhaps others do it as a way to share what’s going on in their lives.
But why am I doing this? Mostly as a way to share with myself, just what is going on. I’m not going to use this as a platform for anything else but… Well, whatever I feel like posting. Quotes. Golf scores. Youth Group talks. Carry-over rants. Interesting articles. Stories about the kids. Whatever I want!
That’s been my philosophy for the past 8 years. At the end of the day I’m going to write whatever I want!
It’s hard to believe where this little blog has taken me. From these first days in 2004 when I had exactly zero readers. To today when the things I write before I head off to work are read by a few thousand people by the time I go to sleep.
Who woulda thunk? Certainly not me.
Thanks for reading. And here’s to another 8 years!
