Doh! I forgot…

11 February, 2009

Last week my blog turned 1! Yay!(but I forgot.. doh!)

It’s been a pretty awesome experience, I started out terrified of writing an idea or a thought down and sharing it with the world, I’ve always been a very confident public speaker but public writing kinda scared me. So much so that when I started my current job I told Helen that I had a blog but she had to promise not to tell anyone else that it existed!

I’ve sice gotten over that and my blog has evolved into a great place to take notes, throw around ideas, work through problems and engage in interesting conversations. In the past year I have managed 71 posts and people have been kind enough to add 126 comments – Thanks guys.

A very special thanks to these folks who have come back and commented throughout the year, your ideas and perspectives have made for a fantastic discussion.

Looking forward to more idea throwing in 2009!

BTW: If you have not read any of these blogs check them out cause they’re all awesome! 🙂

One more thing: Don’t forget to give to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal or Give blood if you can.

    Happy Blogiversary, Mick! I’m looking forward to your next year (or 20) of thought-provoking posts.

    Best,
    Mary


  2. Oh. Happy Blogiversary Mick. Just interested – is the purpose you have used the blog for – notes, ideas, working out problems and having conversations – what you thought it would be when you started? Did any of the evolution surprise you?

    @Mary – Thanks! Me too 🙂

    @Kathryn, Firstly I fixed the spelling of your name, sorry bout that 😉

    I set it up as I read a lot of other bloggers write about how useful blogs were as learning tools. Beyond wanting to explore my area of interest I didn’t really know what to expect. I did always say and think that it was first and foremost about me and my thoughts. If other people found it interesting or commented then that was awesome.

    I think that’s still the case.


  4. Mick, happy belated blogiversary! I’m finally getting around to reading all my favourite blogs…and yes, yours is one of them 🙂

    How a year moves on and changes everything web-like. And soon, it will be your @micktleyden twitterversary, or has that been already?
