I remember when I started to “blog” the videos that we created way back in 2003.
There wasn’t a blogging engine then. I would go to the text file in the code and just update the entries manually. it was tedious work but it was nice to connect to an audience.
You also have to remember that this was a time of dial up internet in the country and a PC dominated house hold. So, I had to make sure that the videos we put up could be right clicked and saved as. Always making sure the the file was around the 12-15 mb limit.
Thank god for Moore’s law.
I was perusing the Wayback Machine (web.archive.org) and saw that I finally went the WordPress route in 2006.
I noticed I wrote more about personal stuff then. I was more excitable. I wrote more often. Looking back I noticed how brash I was, almost toeing the line of arrogance. I was gung-ho and wide eyed. Ahh the foibles of youth.
I hate that I’m more self-conscious now.
And I certainly feel just a tad bit jaded after all that’s happened to me personally.
But I’m glad I was able to chronicle the last 10 years of my life in writing, albeit sporadic and marketing driven.
It’s a great way to see growth and evolution (for ill or good). Y’know – change.
