One thousand posts later. That is a tiny marker of success. It is one of many I see on my dashboard to indicate I am here, alive and occasionally active. Writing is hard, anyone who writes frequently understands this. Every year when there is a major update, I like to write a little message here for those dedicated to reading incoherent rambling but also to myself — because I know I will read it again in the future. Everything takes time and I spent nearly five years cultivating this plot on the Internet. Thanks for joining me. I like the message I wrote last year, last update, so I’ll sign off again with that. Please enjoy the future with me.

A little less than a week after I released the refreshed blog, I wind up back here at post zero. Post zero for every WordPress blog is Hello World and even I did not offer exception to that. Funny, I intended to wipe the slate clean of the first years of my paltry writing but instead I am choosing to rewrite decent to make it better and to leave the bad to remind me of how things were. While having a new modern clean version of WordPress would have been great, this will do fine — instead of making a compromise in having Archives here and Tomes there, I settle for keeping everything in a single continuous chronicle.
Every so often, my life comes with a theme. A few come through my memory still, in high school, there were Absolute, Transparent Ambiguity and Intangible Tangerine. At this part of my life, for some reason, I fell upon the theme of Mirai. Please enjoy the future with me.

A couple weeks ago, I migrated this blog from it’s original home at ryan.ifupdown.com to its new location at blog.ryanramperasd.com. Today, I deployed the next stage of a series of updates to the blog: a new theme. My first theme was from Chris Pirillo called WiketPixie. It was nice but it just wasn’t for me. I switched to the hybrid theme and eventually hybrid original. I updated hybrid original a little bit too but there is only so much I could do. Two weeks ago I started working on this new theme. I throw away the dark background and keep my content bright. It’s sans-serif and clean. Simple. It’s a new chapter for the blog. Thanks, once again, for reading. Have a good one.

After slightly more than a year of blogging, I’m still here. It is pretty amazing that I’ve lasted so long but a lot of great people have left comments and the blog has grown from the first post, this one, to 101 posts on November 29th, 2008 to today. I’m counting around 212 posts and that is a marvelous achievement in my eyes. I hope that if you’re reading my very first post, you have found my blog interesting and useful. I’ve grown too of course, a few days from now, I start my junior year in high school. Thanks again for reading!

Well, Hello World! It’s about 101 blog posts later and I’m still going strong. It does take a lot of time to write posts for this blog, but it’s worth it. I’ve talked to a few people who I consider amazing and famous here, like Brad Neuberg! I hope to get more comments from amazing people and maybe, someday become some one’s amazing person. (That’s a good one.)
