Three Years And Still Going Strong

It was three years ago today, when I started this blog.

It isn't just three years of "And Now, A Word From The Hek." It's three years since discovering the medium of blogging, at a time when it was just coming out of its infancy and starting to be recognized by many media institutions, as a new source for promotion and content.

In the beginning, it was just myself and my friend Tim (Rugby's Inklings), who would actually spend time posting our thoughts for everyone on the Information Super Highway to see. Since then, many of my friends and colleagues have started up their own blogs; including those who said that they would never keep a blog, nor read them.

This was an important year for my blog. In the last 12 months I have used it not only as a journal, but also as a media outlet. The ladder is especially important as I continue to break into the world of broadcasting and journalism. In the past year, I've also added title fields, RSS feeds, links to other sites and some cool graphics. The blog has also been a venue for me to launch my podcast as well as CHEV Radio's blogs.

To everyone who has come to this website whether it was once, or constantly since day one, I thank you. Thank you for your comments. Thank you for your encouragement. Thank you for reading.

And now, here is what the first post looked liked back in 2003. Unfortunately, Blogger no longer carries the original template; so, you're only getting the content and not the actual look. Oh well.

Thanks Blake. And here's to more great blogging from your end. You should write a book of your "road survey" journeys.

And thanks for your comment, Mr. Wo......Anonymous.
