I just noticed that this month is my 5 year blogging anniversary. My first post was on April 2, 2002
. And actually, I would consider myself sorta coming in late in the game. Blogging had actually been popular before that. I had thought it would be a fad, but what got me convinced of its power was the attack on 9/11. Pretty much all the major news media web sites had too much traffic and you couldn't get through. But, the only ones I could hit were blog sites. And they were covering the news very quickly. Then I saw the power of blogs.
