Here is my first blog post from 18 years ago, which makes it as old as a legal adult. Wow…
I got started at a place called Diaryland. A friend, Lacey, had started using it. Back in those days, I was up for trying pretty much anything geeky friends were doing. Blogging was a natural place for me to go.
Diaryland became Pitas and the site there was the first Rants, Raves, and Rhetoric. As other platforms became available, I tried them all:
- Movable Type (the second Rants, Raves, and Rhetoric)
- WordPress (this blog and the 3rd Rants, Raves, and Rhetoric)
My activity is far less now than it was back in 2000, but as I understand, most people active back then primarily post on Facebook or Twitter.
