So, if you’re a subscriber to this blog you already know that the 2004 posts are back on this blog because you got email notifications about two of them last night. OOPS! Sorry about that!
It took several months of monotonous reading of my own annoying voice but I finally got the posts from 2004 updated to fit the current format, pictures are added to most of them. (Although not always all of the pictures referenced in the post. I was trying to be quick and I posted a shit ton of pictures back before instagram.) In the end I deleted several hundred posts about TV (How did I watch so much TV?) and about blog designs (How did I design so many blogs?) and weird 2-sentence posts that would now simply be facebook statuses.
Because I started by also fully deleting certain categories of posts (like the old Memes we used to do, and posts that were simply linking to other bloggers who are no longer blogging) I have deleted over 1000 posts since I started this. AND I AM ONLY ONE YEAR IN. I still have the years 2005-20019 to go!
Anyway…If you’re curious here’s the posts from 2004. I apologize for how casual my writing was back then. Also? I used nicknames for everyone. I think the early 2004 posts I tried to change that and just use real names like I do now but that got too tedious. Periodically there’s a random update from 2020, especially when I say things like, “I don’t talk about politics on my blog,” because…I mean…LITTLE DID SHE KNOW.
I don’t think I’ll start immediately on 2005. I kinda need a break from my own voice for awhile. But I am proud that I got that done. In the end I found a pretty good rhythm of skimming so it wasn’t taking me too long so I could probably get a year done a month if I worked a little bit every day. I’ll be so happy when this is all done with, jeezus. Anyway…here’s more photos from 2004 in case you needed some sort of reward for reading a post about blogging.
