Day 1000

I started this blog (originally named Defenestration Corner) in March, 2000, with no particular theme or purpose – it was just a place I could share things of interest. Travel was a big interest; my first travel post was that same month (a ranking of Real Ales I was drinking at a pub in Stratford-Upon-Avon), and I did my first trip report in May, 2000 (Amsterdam and WWW9).

I blogged when the spirit moved me; every so often, I’d get on a hot streak and blog every day for a few weeks. But there would be other times when I’d lose interest and only blog every few months – or even just once a year.

Things changed on March 17, 2020. I started my Quarantine Journal on the first day of the Santa Clara County “shelter-in-place” order, and I haven’t missed a day since.

How long will I continue? That’s a good question. I guess I’ll keep going until I miss a day!

  1. WOW! My how time flies! And I probably read about 2/3 of them, especially when you started…a fun thing to do every day, while likewise sheltering in place. Missed some when WE got back to traveling a bit…didn’t always have internet.

    ANYWAY, thought I’d let you know I appreciated them…me…who subscribes to NO OTHER BLOG.

    As for me, I will be posting more often again, in a month, when we take off cross country!
