Wow, as a result of reading Steph’s post, I realized it’s been over 6 years since my very first blog post online. And decided to go read my very first posts I ever wrote online.

On my personal blog, the 1st post is from August 10, 2006. However, my very very first post online is actually from April 20, 2006 on Zillow Blog. How time flies – it really doesn’t seem like it’s been that long since I was writing blog post after blog post and participating in our Monday morning Zillow Blog team meetings.

I honestly have no clue how many total posts I’ve published on the web. Whatever the number, its a lot when you think about all the blogs I’ve contributed heavily to — Zillow Blog, Carnival of Real Estate, my personal blog (this site you’re looking at now), Geek EstatemyKRO.org, Virtual Results, YouReach Media, BusinessIdeas247, and Oh Hey World. Plus a scattered mix of guest blog posts on other sites.

The real funny thing is that the topic of my first post on my own site – How can Social Networks become Truly Helpful? – is a topic I’m working on solving in the travel vertical with Oh Hey World. Almost 6 years later. Some things are just meant to be.

How long have you been blogging? Share a link to your first blog post you ever wrote in the comments if you’re so inclined…


  • I know it was earlier but the wayback machine has me back to April 2001
    For me the interesting thing is the friends and relationships my blog has helped create over the years. Like you!

  • The relationships I’ve formed from blogging are by far and away the most worthwhile component of it for me. That’s why I do it. It connects me with other like minded individuals.

    I think blogging gets into your blood, and you start to define yourself as “a blogger.” I’ve been blogging for almost three years, and have made so many friends through my travel posts. My first blog post bears no resemblance to today’s posts. 😉

  • Agree. I’d certainly like to think my writing has improved over 6 years 🙂
