First Things Has Redesigned Its Web Site
52 Guitars: Week 4

Happy 10th Anniversary To This Site

The first Sunday Night Journal was unveiled to an eager public in January 2004. Here is a link to that month's archive; the very first post was a review of Return of the King (the movie). The posts appear latest-first, so that post is at the bottom. I think I had put up some sort of "Hello World" announcement, probably including the assertion that it was not a blog, at the end of December, but I'm not sure. At the time I intended to publish only the one weekly piece.

For the first couple of years it was a very simple web site done with hand-coded HTML and CSS. I got tired of maintaining that, and also decided that I really wanted to have comments, and more casual posts, so I started a blog with Blogger. I believe that was in June of 2006. In 2010 I moved it here from Blogger. Soon after that all the previous comments were lost, which is too bad because there were some great conversations there and I'm sure future historians would have been fascinated by them.

It was actually only last year that I finally got all the stuff from the first two and a half years posted here. Wonder how many words there are in the whole shebang.

Thanks for all your posts and for staying on the air: ad multos annos

Thank you very much, and thank you for reading and conversing so interestingly.

And thanks to all who participate. I would have stopped doing this a few years ago if I didn't enjoy the conversation so much.

I agree with Grumpy: ad multos annos!

10 years is a really long time on the internet!

Missed this somehow -- congrats, and many more!
