I started my wetshaving weblog five years ago today, with a post about my first DE razor and which ones I though y’all might enjoy as your first razor… reading it now makes me wonder if I had any idea what I was doing. Not that I have a clear idea of what I’m doing now, mind you.
Five years of blogging about wetshaving five times a week adds up to 1298 posts and 50K hits or so… it’s been a fun and educational, it also takes time and effort – and I fully intend to keep it up. There is a certain charm to dig up old patents to write about, as well as trawling the internet for other shave related things to share with y’all.
