Happy Blogiversary John

Comments 9 by Rebecca Bollwitt

They say, “those who blog together, stay together.” Actually, I’m not sure who says that but I hope it rings true for my husband and I. The man who calls me his partner in crime was one of my inspirations to begin blogging in the first place and his blog is celebrating a blogiversary right now.

In January of 2004, John Bollwitt started blogging in Iowa about anything from tech news to being a small-town family boy working for a radio station “We fried a computer at the station the other day. I say this literally. There was a snap, and the smell of burning components filled the room…” [jan 22, 2004]

Ten months later he published his first podcast on RadioZoom he would then go on to be the producer of The Crazy Canucks podcast.

Since getting his big time day job here in Vancouver he hasn’t had much time to blog as much as he’d like so I’m going to promote his works a bit with some ultimate link love. He’s come a long way from his blogspot blog (and a long way from Iowa) but he’s still my inspiration for every single post I write.

My Audihertz.net blog all time “best of” moments:

  • John seeing Kerouac’s Scroll. [jan 25, 2005]
  • John meeting a drunken Ira Glass [dec 5 2005]
  • John needing better music at hockey games (and getting some flack for writing this post) [dec 6 2006]
  • John complaining about his wedding ring [march 1 2006]
  • And it says a lot that John’s categories with the most posts under them are “podcasting“, “adventures“, and “rock and roll“. Also to his credit, his “hockey” category is rather impressive.
  • I know he misses having an outlet for his mad writing skillz, but it’s okay, I’m still a subscriber. He seriously also deserves a medal for putting up with me through a host change AND a Blogger to WordPress change all in the SAME week (and later from a PC to Mac). Head to John’s site and explore his archives (start at October 2005 in particular to see his impressions of Vancouver when he first moved here) and check out his various projects. Here’s to many more years of blogging and podcasting, babe.
