Happy anniversary to lastgreypoet.com, which was founded on Oct. 1, 2010.
I didn’t start writing then, of course, but it was at that point that I started to really want to write for myself, after years of writing only for pay for others.
Sometimes, like when I had a newspaper column, that meant I got to write more or less what I wanted. Most days, though, I wrote what I was paid to.
Thus, this place. My place.
It started on Blogspot — remember Blogspot? — but I soon sprang for my own domain, using my longtime online moniker.
Of all things, my first post here was about baseball.
Since then I have been consistently inconsistent in my posting. Good days, bad days. Bad years …
Anyway, thanks for being here, even if it’s your first day.
