Blogversary #5

March 11th, 2012

Thanks to modern technology and the programing of WordPress – this post is pre-loaded since I am underway and not spending the money on logging in today.

Five years ago I switched from static webpage and mailing list to this blog. The static webpage went up in 2006. The mailing list started in 1998 with my deployment to the Balkans and has continued in one form or the other to the present day.

The idea was to have a better and more organized way of recording knitting and spinning projects as well as the occasional soapbox platform on issues that were important to me. Nothing is constant – what has evolved over the years is more of a travelog and a documentation of various deployments and military experiences. Those that are mostly interested in the latter two have a tendency to hit the web version only if they really want to look at larger photos. What I realized a while back is that I am writing for me; documenting and sharing are part of the concept, but not the whole reason.

For those of you (and any friends that you want to round up) who visit and comment here – I will happily send you Germany sock yarn or other fiber goodness as a thank-you. After all, you are taking the time to read this (which I am cruising, knitting and enjoying the sunshine – grin).

    You know something? It was just good to know you were still there – especially while you were in Afghanistan. Earlier proof reading (which I probably did rather badly) just made me relive the experience with you – and wonder how you survived all over again.
    Hi to Maus!

    I was holding my breath the whole time you were in Afghanistan. I’m glad you’re enjoying yourself cruising now! As for the German yarn–you beat you to it. Heh.

    I just wanted to let you know I really enjoy reading your blog. I used to live in Germany when I was in the Airforce. It was the best time of my life. I hope to go back some time in my life.
