Six years.


I recently checked and found out that I first started this blog on August 22, 2005 — six years ago today.

While I’m not nearly as prolific at the moment as I once was — looking clear past Bobbyisms, the music blog I post to every day — I still feel this deserves a bit of celebration.

I confess, I only made the move to WordPress in June of 2007, in concordance with my move to London. I changed up the image of the site a bit while making the transition to life in London — I subtitled it ‘My Life In London Towne’ for a full year after migrating over from Blogger.com.

But the truth? The first handful of entries on here were originally written as blogs on Myspace.com. They’ve migrated multiple times and don’t look good or make much sense, but they’re easy to find. If you look closely, a lot of things have changed here over time; I’ve focused at times on things going on in my life, I’ve written countless words on embarrassingly personal things that I shouldn’t have, I’ve shared photos and stories as my daughter grew from a toddler to a beautiful girl.

The random content of the site has only ever been me trying to express thoughts and feelings out at a given time, and it’s wild to go back and look at — I had a meltdown in there somewhere, it’s unbelievable. But there’s always been music, always been music.

So I don’t know. Happy birthday to me, I’m glad that I’ve had this site for so long, it’s been a hell of a journey.
