Ten Years of Blogging

I just cannot believe it, ten years! On July 2, 2003 I wrote my first blog post and since then I have managed to write – with a few exceptions – at least one blog entry per month.

Some articles are outdated, some links are long broken and comments had to be disabled because of spammers (and Microsoft’s negligence of the blog platform). Nevertheless, it’s interesting to look back at all these years:

The future?

The future of this blog depends on two factors: The blog platform and my personal motivation.

In terms of the future of weblogs.asp.net, it’s time to start looking for an exit strategy as Microsoft doesn’t seem to invest any resources. I doubt they will switch it off without notice as long as Scott Guthrie is on the same platform, but I have to find a way (and the time) to move my content when it becomes necessary.

In terms of motivation: It’s still there. My goal remains to write at least one blog post per month as long as time permits and I as long as I have something (more or less) interesting to tell.

So let’s see if I manage another ten years…
