Whenever I stumble upon a personal blog with years of archives and I feel a wave of jealously. I wish I'd committed to my false-start blogs in 2005, 2010 and 2015. I can't help but look at others' entry dates spanning back in time, sometimes measured in decades and think that it's too late. It feels pointless to commit to a personal blog in 2021.

But what's stopping me? I hope to still be around in a decade and more. If I can't go back and start in 2010 why not start now?
