Why turn the Lights Back On?


When I said that I was spending time bringing my weblog content back, my wife asked “Why?”. I didn’t have a satisfying answer then. And you may not find this a satisfying answer now.

I started Take the First Step in early 2003. Zuckerberg wouldn’t start Facebook for another year. Ev Williams wouldn’t start Twitter for another year after that. If you wanted to stake a claim on your internet identity, then a weblog was the way to go. And I built “Take the First Step” into something that I could be proud of.

I’m not turning my back on that.
