I was a weird kid.

I’d write and painstakingly edit endless paragraphs in which I’d riff on current events and major news items. Then I’d take a floppy disk to my local copy store where I’d print out the pages and bind them with card stock covers, before heading to the post office to mail the completed tome to just about everyone I knew.

  1. It would be awesome to collect up all those “pre blog posts” and convert them into real blog posts. You could have a blog from the age of 10 through to 90 🙂

    I thankfully took a lot of photos as a child, so I scanned all those in and uploaded them to my site as backdated posts. It’s nice to be able to look back over my whole life and see what I got up to back in the day. I particularly like the idea of being able to look back on them when I’m senile and struggling to remember what I did in my life. I will have a nice digital record to job my failing memory once in my dotage 🙂
