Happy Birthday to Me…

My Birthday

It’s my birthday! Yay! I wish I could say I was taking the day off, but I have too much work to do. Oh, well.

There was another birthday recently that I totally missed. On May 1st, this blog turned 2. I started it on May 1st, 2004. Check out my first post. I had no idea what this site would become, or if it would last long. I was just curious about blogging.

On a related note, I had an alternate image for this post, but it seemed a little cheesy, or spooky, or somethin…

UPDATE: Oh my god, I was totally wrong. I didn’t start this blog on May 1st, I started it on May 28th. I guess I’m early for once.

Happy Birthday! How did you do that pop up image trick with the alt image?

“How did you do that pop up image trick with the alt image?

It’s very easy to do. I used some prebuilt scripts called Lightbox JS.

Happy Birthday Paul. Thanks so much for the blog.

Your slogan should be

one digital life: giving people in windowless offices a window to the outside world.


Congrats on the second odl birthday as well.

Hey, I like that slogan. I may have to use it. :)

Very Happy Birthday to you and your blog Paul :) – I kinda like the alt image better, it fits the entry more I think, anyways, best wishes and I hope you get something good (MBP anyone?) ;).

I agree with Larry, I actually really like the alternate image better, very cool. and Happy Birthday, of course.

W00t, Happy Birthday!
I wish I could remember how long I’ve been reading ODL. Honestly, I don’t even remember how I found it… I’m just glad I did!
