I have been blogging for a little over 18 months.
This post is my 493rd post.
I did a post a day for year (to the day) and did much of that while traveling through Europe.
My blog on Day One was far-far different than it is today….
A current reader might see a lot of unfamiliar looking stuff in the form of my old “personal development” type of articles, such as “What I Learned from Punxsutawny Phil” and “53 Life lessons of Homer Simpson” and they may even see the faint beginnings of my current style with articles like “Why I Love Hemorrhoids”.
In the beginning this blog was a lot more about lifestyle. Slowly but surely, I have turned the topic of this blog into being more about “how to” make the money that then can afford the lifestyle you desire; rather than telling you how to live. I think it has been a good change.
The reason that I am thinking back to the beginnings of this blog is because of a challenge… The 7 Links Challenge to be exact. (Check out that link for the exact rules)
The idea behind the 7 links challenge is simple. List your top seven links in very specific categories and give a short reason why they fit the topic.
Of course, all of this looking back has gotten me to thinking about where I have been. This is a good thing. Before you can go forward, you have to know where you have been. And what a long strange trip it has been.
