Except for a slight two-year hiatus in college, I’ve been blogging in some form or another since 1998. First, it was Xanga. Then I started building my own websites on Angelfire.
It’s a common misconception that I started out as a personal style blogger.
My first top-level domain blog was a beauty blog called All In The Name of Beauty. I don’t remember how I did it, but I somehow got the domain name for free. I was 12 or 13 when it launched.
All In The Name of Beauty had exactly three files. It was a single page website and each post had to be typed directly into the index.html file.
Ahh the bad old days. Sometimes my older classmates and I reminisce about the time when the internet used to be like the wild wild west.
I frequently seem to go in circles. I was a beauty blogger in the 90s, and then I came back around to it in 2012. I made websites in the 90s and came back around to it in 2013. Wonder what I’ll be doing in 2020? Back to figure skating? Equestrian?
The last Things You Didn’t Know was quite a while ago– I talked about winter! What’s a fun fact I don’t know about you?
