I launched this blog 10 years ago today. It’s evolved a lot in that time. It started as a simple free blog called In2Deep for sharing various topics broadly related to spirituality. This included notes from talks, videos, and so forth.
As the shift settled in here, I gradually began to write more about it and what followed. I also shifted slowly to my own voice. At first I wrote under the Davidya nickname, only later sharing more of who I was after I’d wound down my tech consulting business.
A few of the milestones:
Surge in posting, sometimes 40-60 a month.
Cross-commenting with a community of bloggers who follow each other’s work (they eventually all stopped blogging). Hit 600 posts.
I was in grad school and post numbers went way down. Was also a time of another stage change.
Published an article in Science to Sage magazine (What is Consciousness?)
Added real name to the blog as a result.
In December, migrated to hosted site @ Davidya.ca
Key Posts migrated to be category-driven. This makes it much easier to keep current.
Fall – BATGAP interview and SAND conference – interview, talk, and panel (see Media tab)
I started working on a book before this blog started but ended up restarting the project twice, narrowing the scope each time. We’re now on the eve of the first books release.
The blog has passed over 1,700 posts.
