Blogging since 1999



Today (16 March 2011) marks the 3rd anniversary of the day I started blogging here on blogger as benotforgot . . . 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 [as of 2011] alive and well . . . [*myfamily . com is defunct as of 2014]
