Today is my fifth anniversary on Word Press – reason enough to take a stroll down Nostalgia Street. (Actually, the anniversary was yesterday, but one has to consider the… uhm… the leap year, right, the leap year – or just learn how to read the bloody calendar!)
It had never been my intention to create a blog as such, but I still landed at WP because of its popularity and its “low-threshold-ness”. What I had in mind was to create a base camp for my stories, from where they could travel the vastness of the Internet. Deviant Art offers similar possibilities, but lacks optimisation for texts. Some story sites do not accept all kinds of topics or do not allow full control over one’s publications (due to technical limitations, at least the sites I am thinking of right now).
I own no means to measure whether it is much what I have written during the last half decade. But I know the next five years will not by far be enough to write all I want to.
P. S.: Meme’s not mine…
