Photography and blogging have become my two of my most pleasurable passions; well photography has been that way since 1987.
My history of blogging is not as long as some. I have been blogging using text, photography and on occasion video since the early 2000s.
As I contemplate my final days as a middle aged man, I have been looking back over my digital footprint; consisting of some blogging and lots of photography. My time also includes some micro-blogging and photography since 2004. I have been interested in all things web since my introduction to it in 1995. I have jumped and hopped from blogging service to service. The one constant? My photography.
I have used many blogging platforms and tools. I started writing blog style entries on my own website in October 2003, [A caveat these links may be broken.]
Then I blogged on blogspot from 2004 to 2010 with the lofty claim; “an online experiment in content publishing using only a mobile phone”.
I hosted a Movable type blog for a while on a server I was gifted, from August 2006, to May 2011. [Archived partially here, also many broken links] The server eventually fell over. At some point I had started using Tumblr.com around 2007 .
Next I moved to a free WordPress account for a while 2015-2018. Then it was back to blogspot [2019-2020], and now finally here on my self hosted site.
