The other night I went through and read a lot of my blog posts from back in 2005-2009. If you didn’t know I’ve been blogging since 2005! That is one thing that is great about blogging, you can go back and see what you were up to, it’s like a journal. Looking back on these posts it’s funny to see my opinion on things and how different they are from now. So I decided to pick 5 things that I’ve blogged about that have changed in the past 5 years.
I own an iPhone – Back in 2007 I made a post about why the iPhone was not for me. 5 years later and 3 iPhone’s later it is my go-to phone and I couldn’t imagine using any other phone out there. I think the whole app craze really sealed the deal for me, and the fact that I could be productive on the phone. Here are my first impressions of my first iPhone.
I love living and going into the city – This post really makes me laugh. For the longest time I lived in the suburbs of Pittsburgh, it was nice, but quite boring. Now I actually live in the city and love going into the city. In the post I talked about having to park in the parking garage and how I prefer suburbs much better. Now it is the complete opposite. I could not image living in the suburbs and I love going out in the city!
I enjoy salads with dressing – For the longest time I would not eat salads with dressing. I mentioned this in my 8 fun facts post and the 5 things you don’t know about me post. I don’t know what it was, but I never did it. In the past 2 years I have really gained an appreciation for salad dressing. I guess my favorite would have to be Italian.
I’ve connected and met a lot of Pittsburgh bloggers and tech companies – In a 2007 post I said that Pittsburgh is not really a tech city and there were not that many Pittsburgh bloggers. Well after going to events like PodCamp and hanging out at StartUpTown I now know many Pittsburgh bloggers and tech companies. It is great to meet people who live in the same area as you and have the same interests!
I love tea! – Incredibly in 2008 during getting my 2nd Pho ever I tried tea for the first time….ever! Sine then I’ve really go into tea. If you come to my house I probably have 6-7 different types of loose tea and I always try new types of tea when I have the chance.
So those are 5 things that have changed for me in the past 5 years. Have you been blogging for a while? What has changed for you since you started blogging?
