I have over the years posted on some blog sites. I started my blogging in 2005 on the old Windows Live blog site. That was moved/replaced by WordPress. I moved my original blog (that was all in one technical, personal and artistic) to my initial WordPress blog Scottoandersen’s Blog and until 2009 that was my only blog. From 2005 until today I have posted more than 5000 posts on my two WordPress blogs. I added DocAndersen’s Blog in 2009. For the first few years of having two blogs, I spent time covering family topics and technical on both blogs. Around 2011 I formally decided to only post technical on my docandersen blog and family on the Scott Anderson blog.
I did that without thinking about anything else regarding blogging. I blogged on the SafeGov.org site until they were closed. I blogged and still occasionally blog on the Iasahome.org site. I also blog on the wonderful Cloudtweaks site. Towards the end of 2016, I discovered Niume and started posting there. I enjoyed posting, and for a time getting paid on the Niume site. As the time passed and the announcement came for Niume’s eventual closing, I started considering other places to post. With more than 700 posts on Niume, I was the top blogger in their Technology and Travel categories. On Niume I met some other bloggers and started joining some of the many facebook blogging groups.
I found Virily in June of 2017. It is a good site; I love being able to share more pictures than I could on Niume with my posts. The point of this technology ramble this morning is the reality of sharing. I wrote a book about inter-generational knowledge transfer. The goal of that book was to talk about the importance of sharing information. I believe in sharing information both because it is critical but also because I feel it is the right thing to do. Sharing information with whoever needs it. I also believe in blogging. The reason for this technical blog today was a review. But I wanted to note as I close that the entire blog was written using Dragon Naturally Speaking, and me speaking to my computer as I was sitting in my home office this is. I used technology to create a blog reviewing the last 12 years of my blogging!
