How did you start online? Geocities?
If you have ever had a web presence, what did you first use to go online? Many today use Facebook (which I think is an excellent place to start). Others start with a blog on Blogspot or WordPress. I think my first site was actually a regular HTML site I built using Adobe GoLive and hosted at work.
Do you remember Geocities? I forgot they were still around until I was reading Seven Wonders of The World (Wide Web) from MakeUseOf.com and they took me on a short stroll down memory lane. Maybe some of you old-schoolers will relate to this:
Remember when Geocities was the Facebook or MySpace of the day? Then remember people starting to diss it as we learned to code HTML for ourselves? Then remember when MySpace and Facebook came along and we were all like, “Hey, this is kind of like Geocities. I miss those days.” and then we signed up for MySpace and Facebook and forgot about Geocities again?
Dude, it’s still there. Good old GC gave many of us our first website, our first look at a WYSIWYG web design, our first abuse of the tag and animated GIF’s. We still love you Geocities. Sorry, have to go change my Facebook status.
Ah, the old WWW of the Web Wild West. How did you first get a web presence? What’s that you say? You never have? Well then let us help you get started! Unless, of course, you can come up with a good reason to NOT be online. If so, let us know!
