Twenty years ago today, this website, which I built myself from the <head> on down, went live for the very first time.
It was SUCH a big deal. It was the culmination of an incredible amount of work, the successful summiting of a very steep learning curve that I’d only begun to climb a few months before. I was and am so proud of all that work.
Today, I am not feeling particularly celebratory. I mean, have you looked at the world, lately? Not a ton to celebrate at the moment, if you ask me, so what ought to be a big party … isn’t. That’s okay. I’ve done this nineteen times already.
Even though I’m not feeling it, I want to wish a happy birthday to WWdN and say congratulations to young me for having the courage and commitment to examine his life, and write about it in public. Everything I am doing today, in a life that is more successful and filled with more joy than I ever thought possible, is built on the shoulders of that work. None of this is possible without all of that, and I’m just so grateful to everyone who believed in me and encouraged me along the way.
Here’s to another twenty years, a few more books, and whatever cool stuff is just beyond my event horizon.
