When I started this blog, I didn’t know it would last ten years. Yet here we are, at this blog’s 10-year anniversary.
I picked this blog’s scheduled time based on when I felt ready to publish the first post while sitting on the brown plastic-fake-leather sofa in my taofang in Taoyuan City, and I’ve stuck to that same time every week ever since.
I feel a pressure to do something grand to mark this occasion. But what is this really? Ten just a number, and a year is just a measurement unit of time.
The celebration is the blog archive. What matters is not what I do at this moment when this blog becomes a decade old, but the body of work spread over the past ten years—and the work to come.
Will this blog last another ten years? I don’t know. But for now, it’s moving forward, on the same schedule.
Congratulations on your 10th anniversary!
Belated congrats on 10 years of tenaciousness and creativity!
I started blogging in summer 2011 and have migrated to a different domain since. I didn’t do anything big either. Maybe I had a drink on it, I don’t even remember. I however, never had such a thing as a posting schedule.
