I cant believe how far blogging has come since I started. I have been keeping an online diary since about 1996/1997 before it was called blogging and become the cool thing to do.

Starting out all those years ago with a livejournal site then geocites to try my hand at web design, I swear if you could see that page now not only would you cringe but I would just die at how bad it would be compared to today’s standards.

I remember hand coding my posts into php files along with my whole site back then. Even when I got this domain back in 2003 I was still hand coding until I made the switch to b2 the onto WordPress.

Having my online diary was my outlet to vent and just talk general crap, nowadays its pretty much the same, I think if I had remained anonymous then I probalby would have opened up more, I did have a lot of private posts when I switched to WP.

These days everyone and their granny seem to want to blog, even my mum was asking if it something she could do! But I am proud to have been one of the old school crowd who started way back when.

When did you start blogging? What are your memories from starting?
