Blogging birthday

Espresso Coco was brought into this world on 30th March 2009.

Happy eleventh birthday, little blog!

Of course I actually started blogging on 14th March 2003 over at Livejournal, so I’ve been blogging for over seventeen years. My LJ has over ten thousand blog entries over that time. I made nigh-on 35 thousand comments and received over 62 and a half thousand comments.

This is all pre-Twitter, of course. A goodly proportion of those posts and comments are what would happen in a regular day on Twitter now, so it’s probably not as impressive as it sounds.

Still, 10k posts, plus the 850 or so on here make it closer to twelve thousand little nuggets of thought spilled out onto the internet.

I miss the LJ days and the sense of community there.

Wonder how long it’ll take me to get up to a thousand on espresso coco?

Will you still be here? Will it still be mainly book reviews? Or something different?

Question, for those still reading. Leave me a comment about where we met online or in real life. Was it on LJ? Twitter? or somewhere else?

I’d love to know. And thanks for sticking around.
