Six years ago today, I published my first blog post. I published it on the fly at Harvard, where I was attending a conference, Blogging, Journalism & Credibility: Battleground and Common Ground.
I did not own a laptop in 2005 so I had to practically beg a staffer to let me use her computer. I'm audacious but I was not going to show up at an invitation-only event without having published a single blog post.
Three laptops and nearly 1,500 posts later, I'm still passionate about blogging.
But passion doesn't pay the bills. And you know “ain't nothing going on but the rent.”
If you value this independent source of news and information and fact-based commentary, show me some love on my anniversary and make a donation.
To paraphrase Gwen Guthrie, a fly girl like me needs an iPad. Thank you for your support!
