Om on writing

Happy Anniversary (sort of) to [Om Malik of Gigaom for a decade of blogging](http://gigaom.com/2011/11/26/10-years-gigaom/). I haven’t shared much about Om on this blog save [this experience from Wordcamp 2007 in San Francisco](http://cdevroe.com/notes/wordcamp07-day1/) when I wasn’t feeling very well at all (travel often makes me sick).

> When lunch break hit, I was hurting pretty badly. So I ended up sitting just outside the Swedish American Hall for a while and finally, while Om and I were speaking outside, Om said: “Go get some rest buddy.” Good advice.

That is Om in a nutshell. Easily one of the nicest and hardest working guys around.

His and [Fred Wilson’s post](http://www.avc.com/a_vc/2011/11/writing.html) made me try to figure out exactly when I began blogging. My best guess is somewhere in 1997. Unlike Om I haven’t been blogging every single day and I only made my living on blogging for a short period of time in these last 14 or so years. Someday I’ll have to write up my experiences though… it’d be fun.
