Let’s Step into Our TARDIS and Revisit Some of Our Favorite Bloggers’ First Posts

Because we totally have a TARDIS. All Mediabistro employees get one. This is why articles sometimes seemingly change after they were posted with no trace of any editing. Consider your mind freaked.

Anyway, a new Tumblr titled “THIS IS MY FIRST BLOG POST” bills itself as “a carefully curated collection of today’s top bloggers and their first blog posts.” Though it’s only been around for a little over a week, it takes the busywork out of finding some of our favorite blogs’ humble beginnings. Hey, Adverblog has been around since 2003, and its first post was about Nike winning advertising of the year. And look, it’s Steve Hall‘s Ad Rants, which began in 2002 with a post talking about the “good” advertising has brought to the world of the Internet. Little did Steve know that one day he would be forced to talk about QR codes. Ugh, QR codes. Think about this: We live in a world where SnapTags are actually an improvement on something else.

Among posts from Ian Schafer and Nick Parish we find our humble blog, which has a post from July 2007 written by our own editor emeritus SuperSpy titled “Because Your Girlfriend Bores You Shitless.” SuperSpy has a way with words, doesn’t she? In reality, this entry should come with a steroids-era type asterisk, as SuperSpy was blogging away on WordPress long before AgencySpy migrated over to Mediabistro. The more you know.
