One of my IndieWeb idols, Brent Simmons, writes about his blog turning 20.
I’ve said it before, but I always look at blogs like that and think, “Why don’t I have one of those?” Congrats to Brent, and thanks to him and every other consistent blogger for helping me keep the fire burning to write things and post them on the internet.
Old proverb: “The best time to start a blog is 20 years ago. The second-best time is today.” :)
Brent also writes:
For the entire 20 years of inessential.com, I’ve been in the same house, at the same desk, with even the same keyboard.
I can’t imagine that degree of stability. I moved out of my parents’ house in 2005, and I’ve moved, on average, every eighteen months since.
When you put it like that, it sounds crazy.
Well, I can aspire to a blog with five thousand posts on it, and I can aspire to a life that eventually keeps a little more steady for a little longer interval.
