Until there was Slog You Only Had God

posted by on April 26 at 10:45 AM

Today’s is Slog’s 2nd birthday. On April 26, 2005, with two lonely posts (and no comments threads?), we launched Slog.

As a result, time is now divided between pre-Slog and Slog.

Here’s what we wrote on that first day.

Posted at 3:40 pm: Burn on Us?

and at 5:48 pm: permafrost

That’s it.

Cool- Permafrost and BurnonUs

Were you folk getting all 80s and listening to 'Frost and Fire' by Everything But the Girl? Were you laughing at how obnoxiously unfunny I stupidly am?

And when did the comments start? I got tired of clicking through looking for the first batch.

I can't believe Slog is only 2 yo. Let me know when she is legal...

Wow, congrats! That's a lot of clickty-clack.

Ah, the Slog. I remember you guys kicking it off shortly after I started my ad agency gig. It was as great a diversion as the Forums. And speaking of which, I haven't been back there in a long while....
