5 Years of Blog

Almost forgot to congratulate myself on 5 years of this blog!
At least one post per month.

Goodbye Geocities

Geocities was the site I first used to learn how to desigen websites. It must have been back in about 1997. I remember working through their "how to write HTML" help pages on a Saturday afternoon as a teenager. Very exciting!

I had a site for my hospital radio show I used to do while I was at school. But in those days domain names were hundreds of pounds, so I had to read out this hilariously long email address or something because you weren't allowed a custom address back then.

Thank you Geocities.

As someone said, the sites on Geocities are like the cave paintings of the internet.
