January 8. Always a day I think about three things..
1.. David Bowie's birthday. Still sad he's not with us anymore..
2.. The 1994 Como bushfires..
3.. My blogiversary.. fourteen years old today!
Here's a couple of photos I scanned a couple of months ago. It's dad in front of our church as it was burning down in 1994, taken by one of the firies (about the only unit that actually made it to the scene - most were out at Bangor and weren't able to get back across the old Woronora bridge due to congestion). This photo appeared in the local newspaper in the week after the fires.
Another from the series..
I was having trouble deciding what to blog first tonight.
If I'd blogged last night it would have been about my trip to Sydney to see mum and her brothers and two Lego shows.
There would have been mention that we went to Aunty Di's on Friday night and remembered the January 1994 bushfires of January 8, those twenty two years ago that day.
If I'd been home to blog on January 8 I certainly would have mentioned my thirteenth blogiversary (my little blog is a teenager!).
And as part of that I would have said happy birthday to David Bowie.
He was in my thoughts three days ago.
And sadly, he was in them again today.
For once I didn't hear it first from the internet. As in 1997, when I heard about Princess Diana, it was my little brother that told me.
Rest in peace David Bowie. You were one of the greatest loves of my life.
So today is my twelfth blogiversary.
Other than that, happy birthday David Bowie and Elvis.
And here's to another twelve years and then some of blogging ... while we remember the bushfires in Como of January 1994
So this little blog turned ten years old today!
Happy blogiversary to me! heh
Ten years, or a quarter of my life in writing and online. Ten pretty big years with a lot of ups and downs, four big overseas holidays, a wedding, a new house, a new job. And mostly all chronicled here, to varying levels of detail.
I had no idea when I started this blog how dependent on it I would become. Simply as an easy place to find when I did things or find a photo to show someone. A place to put photos online for friends/family/strangers. My only regret with the blog is not starting it earlier (even though there really wasn't such a thing much before 2003).
I had wanted to update the style/design of the blog, but ran out of time, on account of being away the entire Christmas holiday, and having last weekend taken up by simply FTPing files up and down. So I may get something new online in the next little while. Maybe. The best I could do was update a few things like the footer, my blogroll and the site description, add navigation links to each entry, and republish the whole site (took twenty seven minutes this time).
Thanks to everyone that's come along for the ride, it's been great!
So I thought after five years of the same design, I'd update it a little.
I also moved it to another server, so that all my various virtual hosts can be in the same place.
Please excuse the mess for the next few hours :)
