Blogging since 1999


Today (16 March 2011) marks the 3rd anniversary of the day I started blogging here on blogger as benotforgot.com . . . two years ago, on my 2nd blogiversary, I wrote about some of my blog firsts in THIS post . . . but . . . if you go by the following definition of a blog, I guess you could say I've been blogging since 1999 . . .

blog - website that allows users to reflect, share opinions, and discuss various topics in the form of an online journal while readers may comment on posts. . . . Entries typically appear in reverse chronological order.

1999 is the year I started setting up various free surname-specific sites at myfamily.com . . . and I was basically doing there exactly what I do now . . . when myfamily.com started charging for their sites a few years later, most of my individual blogs were allowed to sort of fade away . . . sponsors did step forward for a few of those sites . . . and the links below show which of my surname-specific blogs at myfamily.com are still alive and well . . .


So . . . while I've only been here on blogger for four years now . . . by the definition given above, I've actually been blogging for 13 years . . . with no plans to stop any time soon . . . e-y'all later . . . Vickie E. . . .
