SysMango turns 10
March 26, 2003 was the day I pushed the publish button the first time for this site.
It's almost hard to believe that this site has been going, slowly, for the last decade.
I was hoping to do a big post going over the last 10 years, but I ran out of time. I am off of work next week. I should have time to write about the site and my thoughts on trying to maintain it over the last 10 years. I do have one picture showing how much I've posted over the years.
The Internet is a very different place today than it was in 2003. Social media had only just started to gain attention. Twitter and Facebook were still in the future (2006 and 2004). Spending all day on the web was not yet something most people I knew did.
Today, most of the people I know would have trouble living without a broadband connection at home and a mobile data plan on their phone.
SysMango.com looked very different. It has not really ever evolved to be anything other than a random collection of ideas (895 of them) of whatever it was that I was motivated to write about, and actually made the time to do write about.
Like a really great 10th blogiversary post, which this isn't, that I didn't have time to write because tonight I had to drive the boys across Virginia Beach for a school thing, and then back to meet Natalie for dinner and then back again to pick the boys up.
Till I make the time, enjoy the graph.
