Re-reading my initial posts from '07, I find there's not a jarring disconnect from the way I'm expressing myself today. Then again, three years isn't that long ago and by the time I started this blog I was fully cooked as a person (and then some) with not a lot of big changes to my personality likely to come about. I will say, though, that there's been a lot of posts over the years that I've looked back on and cringed. Some of them just didn't come out the way I wanted them to. Sometimes the writing skills just fell short. But I keep those misbegotten posts up just the same. People should have to live with their mistakes, I say. It keeps you humble.
On the occasion of this bygone anniversary, my thanks to everyone who's ever come by to offer comments or encouragement. It's always appreciated and it always gives me the motivation to keep writing. A lot of bloggers don't stick it out and I find it sad that some who were around when I started have vanished.
To those lost bloggers - like Absinthe of Gloomy Sunday - who helped inspire Dinner with Max Jenke and slipped away since, I dedicate this post.
