Blogging for a Year

If you would have asked me a year ago when I started this blog, how many posts I would have made, I certainly wouldn’t have told you over 200, I probably would have said something like, between 50 and 100.

The header of my blog reads:
This online journal / blog is for me to capture a little slice of my life. The life where I try to balance family, IT work, video games, and whatever. I'll probably post a lot about work, family, news, politics, and odd things that I see or happen.

Going back and reading many of my posts, I think I have achieved what I set out to do when creating this blog, capturing a slice of my life. I’ve written a little about politics, movies, hobbies, family, work, and probably a little to much about video games.

I told myself when I set up my blog that I would get my own domain name if I actually updated my blog regularly. Its been a year, and with over 200 blog entries, I’d say I update regularly, but for some reason, I don’t have much of a desire for my own domain name. I like blogger, and the web address of my blog, http://cryptojoe.blogspot.com/ is well known, well, at least with people I know.

The biggest thing to happen to my blog in the last year is the addition of blogger images. Not that I don’t have the web space to host my own images, but blogger images makes it a lot easier. Now, if only there was an easy way to move my old hosted pictures to blogger images without a whole lot of work!

Some highlights from the past year

Amy & I get Married

November Andrew Weekend Posts
Trip to DC with Alex

So, what is new. Well, I’ve been through a few different jobs since I started this blog. I don’t typically blog about periods of unemployment. I have re-discovered my ham radio hobby, I sure hope to upgrade to my general license sometime soon, of course, I’ll have to learn Morse code first. I also got a new Xbox and I’ve started playing some new games, like, Knights of the Old Republic and Madden NFL 2005. Most importantly, Amy and I are married and are expecting our first child together, third in all, in early November! I expect that my second year of blogging will be as eventful as the first.
