When I started the Cre8pc blog, in 2002, blogging was nowhere as popular as it is today. Back then, blogging was still related to diaries and journals and often of a personal nature.

That’s all it is!), you get a weekend at Temple University with a small group of like-minded folks and experienced speakers.
