I like reading these old blogs... mostly.

Have you guys noticed the “Random Old Blogs” feature in the right sidebar? Each time you load (or refresh) a page on this site this cool little sidebar widget displays two randomly selected blog entries from the 2,603 (and counting!) that I’ve authored over the years.

Yesterday one of the old entries caught my eye, and so I clicked it and started reading. One thing led to another, and before I knew it I was skipping all around reading some of my blogs dating all the way back to 2003. Many of the old blogs I remember writing as if it were yesterday, while others I scarcely remember writing at all. I found most of the stuff I read interesting in the sense that they brought back a lot of memories. So much has happened over the past eight years, and I really like that I’ve got daily accounts of my journey.

Some of the blogs I’ve written hold up pretty well and are (somewhat objectively) pretty decent bits of writing, while others made me cringe. One random blog in particular (not going to link to it, sorry) made me slap my forehead and say, “What in the hell was I thinking when I wrote that?!” I tried to console myself and thought, “Oh well, I was young and stupid!” … that is until I glanced at the date and saw that I authored it in 2010.

I’m glad I can laugh at myself, because I would be an absolute wreck if I couldn’t.

Happy Friday everyone, train hard. 🙂
