Happy 10th blogiversary to me!

Since yesterday this blog is ten years old so, time for some history.

It all started in advogato where you could still read it today! (Please read it here instead ;-)

Then it moved to PyDS an early python desktop blog platform with a web interface, and was hosted in PyCS, a free service.

Then PyCS kinda died, and I started generating a static blog and hosting it in my ISP's free hosting. That sucked bad.

Then I started my own company, and I had my own servers, so I started hosting it there (even today this blog is completely static HTML!)

Then PyDS started acting weird, so I wrote my own blogging software, which is a real mess, perhaps 25% finished, but it does things exactly the way I like them.

Currently, this blog is syndicated in Planeta PyAr, Planet Python, Planet Qt, Planeta LUGLI, and a couple other places.

This year, I decided to make the blog completely bilingual (English and Spanish), but I hate translating it.

According to the stats I have available, the blog is in average more popular now than ever (but yes, my most popular posts were years ago ;-)

These are the most popular pages in the last year:

Lessons:

  1. I need to write more about Qt and/or start flamewars with clueless IT writers
  2. I need to search for ancient material and deprecate it
  3. Having your own hosting and blogging software is neat
  4. 10 years is a lot of time: 860 posts (or 913, depending on how you count)
