100 blog posts

by on 12 November 2018 in nablopomo

This is my 100th blog post.

I’ve been writing on some version of this blog since at least 2007. I’ve had 3 kids, 6 jobs and 2 houses since then.

It started out as a Wordpress blog with the Kubrick theme. I switched to Jekyll 3 years ago.

I showed early hipster tendencies in 2010 by adding a colophon. I used “Starkers” and “320 and Up” to build on back then (remember those?).

Over half of the 100 posts have been this year. I blame Andy, Dan and Jukesie for encouraging this over-sharing.

I’m certain that my tendency to blog and tweet openly lead me to working at ONS. And I’ve left jobs in the past when I’ve felt stifled or blocked from blogging.

I feel lucky to work in a place where I can write openly and honestly about my organisation.

Here’s to 100 more.
