D’oh! My blog turned one year old this past Saturday, and I was so thoughtless I didn’t even send it a card.

Happy Birthday, Red Sweater Blog!

It’s been an interesting year. A place to speak one’s mind is a powerful tool, and I’m grateful to the internet for that. The 150 entries I’ve made during this first year must add up to at least 300 hours of time dedicated to researching, writing, editing, and responding to comments. It boggles the mind to consider it all in one retrospective lump, but I cry not over those well-spent hours.

I’ve met a lot of really interesting people through the endeavor, and the process of sharing technical facts and opinions helps to stimulate the ongoing development of my own thinking and working process.

All in all, I think it’s a win-win for writer and readers alike. Thanks for spending some of your valuable time here on my little piece of the internet.

    Happy Anniversary Daniel / Red Sweater Blog. I really appreciate those 300 hours you’ve put into the site (despite calling my UI clunky! ;). Thanks for sharing your insight.

    Just to reiterate the above, thanks for making a great blog that I enjoy reading and hopefully learn from and inform my own writings at the above address, shameless plug I know. I’m nearly as bad as Dvorak.

    Congrats Daniel. It’s an elite few who can produce quality content for a consistent year. It’s a joy to have a blog that focuses on thoughtful posts rather than the high-quantity drivel we get most places. Pace yourself, and keep it up! -Will
