so this site, archive.org, has been around for many years. unlike “googling” yourself, you can visit a site and view how it looked in the past. if archive.org has a snapshot of the site from a certain year and/or years, you can view it. it’s kind of cool to see some old sites i was a part of.

before blogging was blogging, you simply had a website you had to update frequently if you wanted to ‘blog’. i found my old personal homepage (they were called personal homepages instead of blogs, haha), circa 1997. i used to update my links, pics, and i even had a script that would display the “word of the day” and it’s definition via some unix script.

after my daughter was born in 2000, i remember starting a family website in 2001. fortunately archive.org had a snapshot of it. this was the initial page and it’s early stages. ahh, i love seeing my little girl (my oldest now) and that graphic i put together ๐Ÿ™‚

so if you were on a website, worked on a website, or owned a website, go back in time via archive.org and see what you can find! ๐Ÿ™‚
