Delving into the past…

As I was glancing through the Bumpzee Dofollow community RSS feed, I spotted a post that caught my attention (I found the update, but not the original in the feed, but nevertheless, I found the original ;)). It’s a bit of fun and a great way to see how far we’ve come as bloggers. The challenge is to republish your first post from your blog.

My first post on a blog was about 8 years ago, and on a disk somewhere. I had made a page in HTML that I would update with a new post, and put up on my ISP webspace. The page was designed after that of a really, really old version of a site called Nickd. I’ve had a few other blogs between then and now, but this has been the longest-lasting and most consistently updated blog that I’ve maintained. Not ironically, this has also been the most successful blog I’ve had.

The first post on this blog was really a placeholder, mentioning that I’d be back with another post later on that same day. So, here are the first *two* posts from my blog:

1st post: Hey there!

Hi there! This is the first post in a new blog, if you hadn’t noticed πŸ™‚

Hope you come back soon. I’ll be having a roundup of the latest installment of Rockstar: Supernova up at around 9 pm Central Time (0200 GMT). Based on this week’s reality episode, it could be interesting.

I then came back a couple of hours later with a recap of the reality episode for that week’s Rockstar:

Rockstar – Week 7 Reality Episode

week 7 – reality episode

could the promoter be any more boring? I mean come on! That’ll put me to sleep. Interestingly, it appears that they have the airshow installed in the plane as well.

Let’s count the times we see Honda, the logo or anything else realted to honda – 3. at least.

Yo Zayra, your own stuff is only going to be in the Hard Rock CafΓ© if you leave it there; also, don’t think you’re going to be on that stage unless you’re invited by someone you know personally…

Good on ya Dilana for making your case πŸ˜‰

hmm – one original song; and all acoustic

Gilby on Solsbury hill..and everyone wants to do it πŸ˜€

This ought to be good…zayra doing an original :O

well, it will be somewhat different – she’ll be screaming in spanish

toby – solsberry hill

No generic post saying that this is a Blogger or Blogspot blog with a comment from someone from Pyra labs called Mr. Blogger. πŸ˜‰

  1. Hey Sephy,

    I caught your trackback when I checked the blog’s email. Glad you decided to join in and I’ll add you and your post to the list which I’ll publish the first edition on Sunday. Hope you can stop by.

  2. Kirk – I haven’t had the chance to look at the other posts, but I know you’ve posted it already; it’s a great idea πŸ˜‰

    Snos – It is, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰
