Two Years Is A Long Time

You know how you can tell that my priorities have changed over the last few months? It's 9:20 PM, and I just remembered that today is the 2 year blogiversary of Semi-Intelligent Thoughts.

2 years...that's a long friggin' time. Think about it. When I started SIT (using the abomination known as Blog*Spot), I was a month into my freshman year of college, I had just started getting interested in politics a few months before that, and I had only been reading blogs for a couple weeks. My entries were in "real-time" format, which means that I wrote as if people were reading everything the second I typed it, and most posts were completely random.

Over the next few weeks, I somehow attracted readers and links, and I ended up posting a lot about politics and current events. Blogging became a full-time hobby, and I spent most of my free time finding things to write about. I eventually became a Munuvian and switched to Movable Type, and my posts got longer, more detailed, and more focused. This continued through the election in 2004.

After that, I basically used this site to bitch about the idiots in my dorm, and I blogged a lot less often. By last summer, I was just using SIT to pimp my band (by the way, I'm still looking for reviews of the demo) and apologize for not posting. I considered retiring a few times, but for some reason, I never followed through.

And now, here we's September of 2005, I'm a junior in college, and I still have a blog. I'm still not sure exactly what direction I want to take this thing, and I really don't think this post serves any specific purpose, but I'd like to thank everybody once more (if you're still out there) for sticking around.

I keep thinking back to the way life was when I started SIT, and I realize that a lot has changed in 2 years. I've learned a lot, I've changed quite a few of my beliefs, and I've been through a ton of different situations, many of which have been documented here.

Like I said, my priorities have changed a lot, and I don't know if SIT will ever be as good as it was "back in the day," but as of right now, I'm not going anywhere. I tried to quit once, and I couldn't go through with it.

Here's to another 2 years.

rawk on, man...
Keep your blog. It's always good to have around, especially when you wish to slander dorm-mates....
Plus, documenting your life is fun, is it not?
