Nine Years


I had not checked my WordPress Reader over the busy weekend, so it wasn’t until this morning that I saw the congratulatory message from WordPress on my ninth anniversary here.

Nine years ago I came over here on the behest of Microsoft when they were shutting down Spaces, their blogging service. It seems like just a short time, but in the cyber world it is eons. So much has changed, so many products, services, companies have come and gone. Just looking other at my categories I can see names that are now mostly memories: Image Composite Editor, Live Writer, Movie Maker, Photo Gallery, Photosynth, Picasa, Spaces, Live Services, Windows Phone. All of them supremely good tools or services, some are not completely gone and are still used by dedicated and enthusiastic users.

This blog, too has had its glory days. Early on I did most of my blogging here with tips and other technical articles. Then I specialized and spread out over many other blogs.

For me it has been a fun ride. I got to meet many other bloggers, some have become personal friends, I even met some in person. Yes, they are all real great people.

Maybe the time has come to re-awaken This ‘n That and share more here. I hope you, my friends and readers, will continue to stick with me, give me an occasional Like, and most precious of all, a Comment. I will try to do likewise.


Oh, and don’t forget my other blogs and websites.

Thank you all!
