The Tech Teapot's first birthday

Happy birthday cake for the Tech Teapot

The Tech Teapot, or as it was originally called, the OPENXTRA Blog is one year old today. Ten categories, 186 posts, 156 comments & trackbacks and more tags than I care to count and we’re still going strong.

Thank you all for reading. A blog is nothing without readers and commenters. Extra special thanks to the following people:

Chris Garrett – Sage advice on blogging. Thanks Chris!

Robert Aronsson – creator of the Intellipool software and blog

Tarus Balog – principal for the OpenNMS project & business

Alan Lord – blogger over at The Open Sourcerer

Lukas Beeler – SMB IT blogger over at Lukas Beeler’s IT Blog

I’d better mention my OPENXTRA colleagues too (they do read this!). 😄

One thing I’ve learnt over the last year…blogging isn’t as easy as some people make it look! Writing a good post takes far more time than I would have believed a year ago.
