My second blog ("sex, drugs and water utilities") lost me a few job interviews.* I ended that theme when I took a UC Berkeley postdoc that focused on water.
I copied one-third of the posts (~170) from sex/drugs to aguanomics, which launched on 26 March 2008.**
This is the 5,000th post on aguanomics. I wrote most. Damian Park wrote ~25 and guests -- mostly students -- wrote ~280.***
Looking back, I can say a few things:
- I really enjoy blogging
- Many posts from past years are still fun to read
- Many critiques (water is too cheap, etc.) are STILL relevant :(
- I've learned a lot from different people's perspectives on water
* Bonus points if you see their common element :)
** Six months of aguanomics, One year, Eighteen months, Two years, Thirty months, Three years, Four years, Five years and Six years of aguanomics. Check out the photos!
