In using the Wayback machine earlier today to start recovery of old posts, it hit me that it was roughly ten years ago that I started blogging.
I had seen blogs around, was starting to follow them, and thought I had something to offer. I can’t remember exactly how that got started, or even how I was proceeding, but John Ringo decided I should be doing more and introduced me to Joe Katzman at Winds of Change. Joe became my blogfather, and guided me as I moved from posting at WoC to my own blog. A few years after that, Blackfive honored me by requesting I guest blog at his place, and then let me continue to post after his book came out.
