Today, RalCon Fills a Six Pack of Blogging History

We’ve made it to six, SIX years of blogging.

Let me get up and dance real quick………..

I really have no interesting story about how this website was started. I was bored at work one day and started blogging. It just stuck and here we are.

What can you expect from this blog in the future? Absolutely nothing different. I plan to continue geeking out about downtown Raleigh, meeting new people, and taking photos.

2013 should be a good one as the Urban Design Center wants to start talks of a new downtown plan. Stay tuned for more as it comes out.

As a birthday treat, I’d like to post this photo I took before the blog was started. This is of the early construction work on the RBC Plaza tower, the current PNC Plaza on Fayetteville Street.
