Two years of blogging
I started blogging January 8, 2006. At that time blogging had been around for years, and I felt quite late on the bandwagon. WordPress had over 250,000 blogs alone. I was unclear when I started what I wanted to get out of it, but I enjoy writing and sharing and it seemed a good way to do that. In time this blog became mostly about Microsoft Flight Simulator development, but other topics sneak in from time to time.
Now WordPress has over 2.1 million blogs, and I range between 10,000-20,000 views a month. Modest by the standards of the big blogs, but encouraging to think that many of those visitors are finding something useful.
So, if you’re thinking about blogging, any time is a good time to start. I do recommend against worrying about posting just to keep people reading. I post when I feel moved to, which may leave gaps at times, but I think that’s harmless. It should feel like fun, not an obligation.
