Time Machine

This is probably interesting to me and only me. You’ve been warned: It’s mostly fuzzy navel gazing nonsense.

I was emailed recently from Geocities warning that they are going to delete all of their free website accounts sometime this summer. Well, most of my first anonymous blog is on that site. What to do with it all? Some of the old posts have been shamelessly re-tweaked and republished here. But what about the rest?

I didn’t use any kind of content management software. I just wrote everything in HTML (which seems now like etching out words on stone with a blade of grass). So adding all of that content to this site would be a huge job; I began the site in 1997 and ended it in 2003. And I’m not sure that I even want all that content here. I am a completely different person now.

Seriously, I was one angry, twenty-something, white bitch. Don’t laugh. So I haven ‘t changed all that much.

I almost peed my pants reading my old biography because I laughed so much. It is, at once, both alarming and reassuring to see how little and how much I’ve changed in 10 or so years.  And you know, since I’m planning a title change for this blog anyway, I’m going to have to incorporate parts of my old bio into a new one for the blog…

LATER: Looking at the stuff I wrote in 1998 is just plain out weird. What’s even more weird is the background I used back then. Good Gawd.

    LOL! “What do you want to know?” I love it.

    I, my hubby and pretty much everyone else I know has an old site languishing on geocities. Many will freak. ;)

    Ha. I know my mother did freak when I told her.

    Poor Geocities. After Yahoo bought them, they just weren’t the same.

    I didn’t even know what a computer was in 1998…
