As mentioned before, I’m using The Wayback Machine to recover all of my old posts from my various blogging platforms because REASONS.
I’ve finished 2004 (I’d only posted in November and December), and have realized a few things.
1. I really needed an editor. Still do, but DAMN did I need an editor.
2. I wasn’t a good enough blogger or writer to deserve an editor.
3. Posting links to blogs and news articles without excerpting from them is probably an exercise in futility, because they quite often go away. The Internet is not forever.
4. In fact, I was an incredibly sucky blogger.
I don’t recommend you go back and look at them, but it’s very obvious that browsers didn’t have spell-check in 2004. PAINFULLY obvious.
