Here are the things that I tend to invest my time in online.
I started blogging back in 2001 when there was just a handful of us out there and companies often called us bloogers. Online publishing was ridiculed but I still had fun with it. It’s also where I archive my columns for The StarPhoenix and radio appearances on the Saskatoon Afternoon Show. The first 7,000 or so entries were posted to the site using Blogger before I finally switched to WordPress.
In 2004, Caterina Fake let all of us know about a new project her and Stewart Butterfield were working on, it was called Flickr and it was the easiest way to upload and share your photos. Over the years I have uploaded thousands of photos there and is still the place where almost all of my photos end up.
The Christmas Gift Guides
Several years ago I posted a Christmas Gift Guide and the response was overwhelmingly positive. Eventually more and more people asked if I would do another one and then another one so I did. Now I do about a half dozen Christmas gift guides during November of each year people flock to the site by the tens of thousands to see what I am recommending. It’s both weird and fun.
