On this very date ten years ago, December 18, 2007, I created The Delete Bin. Happy ten-year anniversary, DB!
You can even read my first post here, written during an era when I wasn’t sure what kind of blog this would even be
However, this is a bittersweet occasion, Good People.
Because today, on this very same date ten years later, this is the last Delete Bin post ever.
Let me explain.
I can’t believe it. But, you are reading the 1000th post of this blog.
The Delete Bin started in its first incarnation in 2003, and petered out. Then I revived it and relaunched it on December 18 2007. It’s been going strong since with at least two posts a week. For those of you who have been around for that long, thanks for still following along. This blog wasn’t always in the format that it’s in now. It actually wasn’t always a music blog, exclusively. But, as things sometimes unfold as they need to, this blog became what it is pretty naturally anyway. And there have been some highlights.
Not all of them have equalled to worldwide recognition. Actually, no one post has done that just yet. But, there have been little events that stand out in my mind that have helped inspire me to continue to pilot it, beyond my need to write about the music I love for just the sheer joy of it, of course. As is my custom here, I’ve chosen 10 such highlights that stand out for me as being milestones in the life of this blog, The Delete Bin. Here they are!
