Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

RE: 5th anniversary of Blogging Roller

From the Blogging Roller himself:

Today is the fifth anniversary of this blog, which I started on April 11, 2002 to promote the Roller blog software that I had just finished writing.
Now, five years later, Roller has graduated from the Apache Incubator to become Apache Roller, blog-tech is my full-time job at Sun and I'm still Blogging Roller. Thanks to Roller users and contributors everywhere for helping to make this possible.

Congrats Dave - 5 years is 20 years in Internet Time isn't it?!

It's hard to believe I've been reading Blogging Roller for that long. Thanks to Dave for getting me into blogging and creating Roller. It was his article that got me interested in blogging and inspired me to setup this site. Thanks to Roller, I met Lance, who got Dave and I the Pro JSP deal, which lead me to create AppFuse.

Thanks Dave! I owe you a beer or 12 for all the good things you started.

It's funny to think back when there was only a handful of Java Bloggers: Russell, Dave, Lance, Erik and good ol' Mike. Remember Mike and his "Java blogs" blogroll? ;-)
