11 years ago today I wrote a couple of posts on a typepad blog site which began the journey that has become this blog site.
Today is this blog’s birthday.
The first post was titled Welcome which did exactly that. In those early days the blog was called Oak Grove which is related to the origins of my surname.
The second post was titled Aspirations which outlined a number of personal observations. It’s quite a ramble, I hope my writing has improved since then.
On the 8th April I wrote a post titled The always-on social impacts which set a theme that has reappeared in various forms across the 11 years. Since that time we have become ever more connected and now travel everywhere with a smartphone and access Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. every waking hour. I suspect that this is a theme we will come back to again.
