10 Year Blogging Anniversary

I just wanted to take a quick moment and mark this milestone – headsubhead.com is 10-years-old. Back in July, I crossed the 520 week threshold.

10_year_anniversaryMy very first post was about a book found in a Irish bog (which is still kind of cool). Not much has changed, on this blog, over the years. I’ve been through 4 templates and have grown up with WordPress (which is definitely still kind of cool). And I have talked a lot about books, publishing and Birmingham.

Another thing that has not changed in the 10 years are the neat people I’ve met through my little book blog. Bookish people are by far some of the coolest folks one could meet. Passions and opinions run deep. And while the conversations have moved out of the comments sections and onto Twitter, etc. I still get excited when I get the chance to “talk books” with any of you.

So a special ‘thank you’ to each of you for taking some time to visit headsubhead.com every once and a while.

    Congratulations, my friend. I consider a decade of blogging to be a major achievement, especially considering the way that life is so full of surprises. What scares me as I approach the same milestone at Book Chase is that I have noticed several blogs shutting down within months of achieving it. Seems to be that, for some, a kind of psychological fatigue suddenly sets in at that point. So, again, congrats…and let’s go for twenty now.

  • Thanks for the kind words and for commenting. I agree that more and more folks wither away once they hit a big milestone. Hopefully it won’t happen to us! Fortunately for us, as long as we keep reading, we’ll always have something to blog about. I just wish everyone would bring back their blogrolls. Those were always fun. Here’s to 10 more years, cheers!
