I knew I started blogging around this time of year in 2001 but thanks to a server crash in December 2001 I had no record of my first blog post. I tried The Wayback Machine but couldn't remember the original url. I had tried various searches on Google and using Devon Agent but with no success but then I remembered that Ev Williams, who started Blogger and now Twitter, had made me a "Blog of Note" on the front page of Blogger in 2002. A search for that got me my old url and The Wayback Machine then came up with the goods.
So my first ever blog posts are preserved here and I began on the 3rd of March 2001. On day three I said:
"I started feeling a bit uneasy about this blog today. Who will ever read it and what will those who do think?"
Ten years later I am still wondering .....
