[fr] Il y a huit ans jour pour jour, je commençais à bloguer.
[Eight years ago today](http://climbtothestars.org/archives/2000/07/13/weblog-open/), I stumbled over to [blogger.com](http://blogger.com) after seeing one too many “Powered by Blogger” stickers on sites I was visiting after checking out the profiles of my fellow Astounding Web forum pals.
I read the welcome page, and didn’t get it.
I created an account to try to understand. Ah! This was something that would allow me to publish stuff (like my “What’s New?” page) easily, without having to bother with FTP (that was what Blogger was about then — Blogspot didn’t exist yet).
It sounded like a cool tool to add to my site (like [Sitemeter](http://sitemeter.com), like a local search engine, like a feedback form). Little did I know where it would lead me.
I’ve been a blogger for eight years.
