I’ve kinda stopped blogging regularly, I think I’ve migrated mostly to Twitter like many people did. Some weeks I found enough interesting (at least to me and as I hope, to my roughly five readers) links to post an update to The Stack, but not much in the way of real content. Words, pictures, essays? Ok, mostly rants. I’m still posting stuff on various websites, but not in this “blog” format, maybe because I didn’t want this iteration of “my personal website” to be daily journal back in 2011 when I went live. Maybe for some other reason.
Anyway, I found the oldest posting in one of my earliest blogs - it’s dated September, 11th 2000 - at 20:09:48 (not sure if UTC or German time). It’s the id:1 post in the database that’s run until 2005-06-12 when I completely moved to the blog where I mostly wrote about studying, it’s still online and I stopped posting there at the end of 2011, a bit after this site went live. So this is kind of a 17 year anniversary - because I have no clue when I really started, if it was late ‘98, somewhere in ‘99, or earlier in 2000, my guess is 1999 as I found another website that apparently went live in ‘99 - but that first entry talks about a new design and porting content. Sadly the oldest snapshot on archive.org is also from September 2000 and it has no content at all - so I just don’t know when I moved to that domain and I also don’t remember if I was already blogging on that Geocities website I had before.
