Holy shit. It’s been a decade since I started blogging. The world had just learned that Al’Qaeda meant business. Britney Spears hadn’t gone crazy or turned to sourdough yet. CNN was still a decent news outlet. Jennifer Lopez hadn’t even started dating Ben Affleck. Most people I talked to didn’t quite understand my obsession with “that Internet”. There was no Twitter. There was no Facebook.
It’s crazy how much a decade has changed the way we communicate and interact. When I started blogging I could (and did) talk smack about people in my life secure in the knowledge that they would never see it. Nowadays I know when half my friends are taking a poop, as it is happening. Come to think of it, that might be a sign to make new friends, or return to talking smack about poop-tweeters. (Or maybe I should just count my blessings that those people haven’t discovered Instagram yet?)
