10 Years of MacSparky

This year I’m celebrating 10 years of MacSparky.com.

It’s hard to believe that a decade has gone by with me writing to the internet. In some ways, it feels like much less time. In other ways, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing for this site.

When I was in college, I spent a significant amount of time studying the founding fathers. It seemed everyone had their own newspaper back then. Every kooky political belief had its own platform. In the 1980s, when I was in college, there were, realistically, three big media companies running the whole show. I was jealous of a time where anyone with an interesting idea could easily publish that to the public.

With that in mind, you can see why I gravitated toward the internet. But instead of writing about politics, I wanted to write about my love of getting work done and using Apple products to do so.

Starting this blog was one of the smartest things I’ve done in my lifetime. It’s led to many wonderful friendships, a separate career in the publishing business, and ultimately my escape from a law firm into a lifestyle that works a lot better for me. In short, it saved me.

Thank you all for reading. As long as you keep showing up, I’ll keep writing.
