Sixteen years ago today I registered the domain name brucew.com. The only reason I mark the date today was that I had to pay my domain name renewal. Otherwise it would have slipped away, forgotten.
It wasn’t always a blog. I don’t think blogs had been invented yet. WordPress was still five or six years in the future. I made the site the old-fashioned way, with a text editor and FTP. Roll your own HTML.
It wasn’t always mainly about bikes. I hadn’t been on a bike in decades, and wouldn’t be for another eight years.
It was only a year or two ago that I took down all the pages from 1998 to 2004. They’d passed their sell-by date and had lost their relevancy.
Things change and move on.
