Happy Blogiversary to US
This humble blog first appeared 10 years ago on June 1, 2004. Cleverly titled, "At the Beginning" Unsolicited Opinion's initial post promised "interesting commentary on events". One thousand six hundred eight posts (not counting this one) later, I definitely lived up to the commentary part. Events varied in significance--from war, economics and culture to rants and bike rides. Whether it's been at all interesting is your call.
The early years at Unsolicited Opinion featured many more long form essays than these days. Back then I had more time to read and comment on other blogs which stimulated my own thoughts. I particularly enjoyed the writing since it helps me clarify and understand my thinking. More recently, working full time in a job that involves a fair amount of computer work and writing leaves me disinclined to spend even more time on a computer during my non-employment hours. I still write and use a computer outside of my job but I keep it limited.
All that said, expect more of the same on whatever schedule I maintain from here on out. Most of all, thank you to all who have visited, commented, linked, or otherwise noted his humble blog in the past decade.
