Blog Anniversary!


Back on March 17th, 2006 I took my first stab at posting in this online forum called a weblog.

Clearly, I had no idea what I was going to do with a blog, and certainly had no idea that I would eventually end up posting daily, even if daily often meant a wide variety of content lengths.

For quite some time, the most comments I had for something I wrote came back from a one-word post! I think I jotted down "butter", and then clicked "publish". There's literally no telling what will connect with readers, but that silly bit sure did.

Since then, I've posted daily musings, brief bits of humour, the odd rant, links to my weekly newspaper humour column when it ran - and my national column when that went into the online world.

Concert reviews, travel blogs, theatre, interviews - the list goes on and on.

Recently, my actual writing career has turned 360 degrees, back to my first publication credits - I'm doing music writing again, for now in cyber-space primarily. That is going to change, I believe, but I'll just leave you with that teaser for now.

Up at the top, you can click the photo montage to watch or listen to my interview series - that feature has been running since 2009. Even more recently, I've taken a more serious stab at developing a YouTube channel - which you can click on just over to the right.

Oh, and of course there is that recurring chain-smoking alcoholic chicken that continues to be among my top viewed offerings. There's really no accounting for taste...

I am determining that I need to rebrand, to try and focus my efforts to gain more readers, but for now, the scattergun approach continues.

Thanks for being part of this ride, and I hope you continue to check in when you can.

Here's a couple of links, my first post, and the year following...

Wow! I can't believe it has been that long. Congratulations Mr. That Dan Guy. And I see from your 2007 post, Charlie has been a bad chicken for many years. I love your blogs, and am excited for your new plans. Can't wait!
