I’ve imported some old blog posts

I may have started writing on this blog back in June 2010, but it was not my first foray into publishing my thoughts online – for that we need to go back to 2005. I was just starting university, and it was a time when Facebook didn’t exist and MSN Messenger was the way you kept in touch with your friends.

It was also a period when Microsoft offered a product called ‘MSN Spaces’, allowing users to create their own blog and share the posts with their Messenger contacts. My first post was in May 2005, and I eventually posted over 100 entries before until I gave up on the site in July 2006.

My blog circa 2006

Microsoft shut down MSN Spaces March 2011 and gave users the option to migrate their content to a new blog hosted at WordPress.com – I did just that but archived all of the content, embarrassed to make public what I had wrote as a teenager.

A few years later I’ve taken another look at my old posts and realised they aren’t half bad – so I’ve since decided to pull my finger out and import the good bits to this blog. They are pretty much as I published them back in my early days – except I’ve edited out my chronic overuse of parentheses.

    I can only think what an awful experience it was for someone your age at the time. Pokie areas of the casino are depressing, well, most of it is really. It is a great place to see people who go there by choice but seem to be quite unhappy, if their miserable faces are to go by.
