Why I started blogging
I have been blogging since 1996 way before it was cool, and to be honest I did it as an online diary. I remember back in the day I used to hand code my posts and entire layout of my site using PHP made from scratch then I discovered WordPress in 2003 and never looked back.
I began blogging as a means of a personal diary, this was just beginning to take off and I discovered a ton of others doing the same thing – most have fell away from it but there are few that I have been following for years that are still going strong.
Blogging for me hasn’t really changed – I have seen so many new blogs pop up daily and blogging in a whole is all focused now on what niche you fall into – I tried the whole niche thing and its not for me, personal is the way for me. I am a general blogger, perhaps lifestyle? I am not sure what label people would class me as, but thats ok – I am going to keep doing what I am doing as its what I am most comfortable with.
I started out on GeoCities with FeeFee Trixybells Homepage, then bought my first domain kinky-cherries.com – which I still have but tend to use this site more so now.
