Today I’m giving a presentation about blogs – at my office!
Ten years ago at this moment I had no idea what a blog was. I don’t know if I had even heard the word. I would have told you it was crazy talk that I’d be throwing the word “ubiquitous” around a conference room paired with this zany, made-up word.
Ten years ago around this moment a 21-year-old in Texas named Alison started a blog called Bluishorange.
Bluishorange has been one of my favorite, go-to, must-read blogs in each one of those ten years. I’ve known Alison for longer than my wife! I have read literally every post she has ever written for ten years.
My favorite posts are usually when Alison tells a story, or when she finds some thread in her life that is also woven into mine. Here are ten of my particular memories from ten years of blogging, in no order whatsoever:
Okay, one more: when she compared bug spray to whiskey.
Happy birthday, Alison!
Have you read Bluishorange? When did you start? What’s your favorite post?
