This website is not a blog.

The post is mostly someone waxing nostalgic about a time before blogs existed. I joined her on that journey through memory lane - I was making websites back then too and it really was different.

Websites were a labour of love and every single page was made manually - right down to copying and pasting the navigation if you had one (until you discovered the magic of frames that is) and everything you wrote was "everfresh". You didn't talk about your day, you made useful "pages" about a topic. This could be pages with instructions on how to do something or they hosted links to other pages that you helpfully pointed people to.

It may have many of the hallmarks of a blog but there are some big differences that I think are significant enough that I can simply not call what I do blogging.

Look everywhere you want on this story. You wont find a posted date or anything like that. That's because instead of constantly writing new posts I go back and actually update my old ones. If an update happens that makes something I wrote in an article wrong, I'll update the article. This means everything on here should always be up to date.
