I started blogging in 1998, during the days of the now defunct Geocities. It was the days of 14Kbps! Yeah. The speed of which my current Streamyx 4Mbps ‘broadband’ emulates ever so often.
I was saddled with a legacy problem. My entire blog was html-handcoded on a notepad, originally. It worked fine but updating was a chore as I had to manually update the rss, related links, ftp and do a bunch of other stuff each time.
Here I am, twelve years on and succumbing to CMS and template blogging. I am also moving the photography blog over here. House warming soon and you are all invited. Boloka is Hokkien for Blog, by the way.
