Charles Hill of Dustbury reflects on some of the features of having written his blog long enough for it to be able to vote -- specifically, the allure and possible meaning of re-reading.
I won't actually hit seven years of clattering away until January, but I'll sometimes do the same thing and reread old posts. I might edit a typo or adjust a label here and there when I do, but the main reason is just a little yen to see what I might have said once upon a time. Of course, sometimes that's for research purposes as I prepare a new post on an old subject. And sometimes it's so I can be assured that the meaning of what was written is still comprehensible to this blog's less insightful readers, among whom time has shown I must count myself.
