The first blog post I ever wrote, in 2006, was simply listing the poem Resemblance, by David Ferry:

I started then, using one of the original pieces of read/write software - Blogger, code originally written in 1999, acquired by Google in 2003, rarely updated since then, but still used by me in 2023.
