The Tweezer's Edge is one year old today!
Radio UserLand's UserTalk macro language, and even some Perl. The weblog was initially
created with Blogger; later it was migrated to Radio UserLand, and migrated again to
When I began writing my weblog, I thought that I would write commentary on social and
political issues. As I read more and more weblogs, I found that others wrote about
these issues much better than I ever could, and in much more depth. One good piece of
advice I've tried to keep in mind is "Write about what you know". As I grew in my
knowledge of Radio UserLand, I found that what I know best is technical stuff -
writing about how to do cool things, explaining bugs, writing code and documentation,
etc. So that's what a large percentage of my posts ended up being wrote about.
A fitting mark to the blog's anniversary: My SiteMeter crossed 15,000 visitors today.
Many of those visitors wound up here from Google, looking for programming help or
information about labor law (among other things). My weblog is not a high traffic
site by any means, but its nice to know that people are reading what I write.
Considering the numerous changes in the structure and direction of my weblog writing
in the past year, I really have no idea where the next year will lead, other than I plan
to stick with the weblog.
I'd like to take this opportunity to acknowledge my blog friends - blogging is definitely
more fun and interesting when its a shared journey: Thank you
Lisa and Julie!
We do really need to get together sometime. ;)
Just to write something funny, I posted this one
year ago today (my second post):
My fiancée says I'm a coconut head. Me thinks she's probably right.
If you ask my fiancée today, she'll tell you
I'm more of a coconut-head than ever. (But that's something I'm proud of!) Thank you
Rhye for your encouragement and support, even in the early days when you thought I
was nuts to want to write a weblog in the first place.
And finally, a big thank you to my blog's readers - without you, this weblog would
just be an echo chamber.
