2003: The Missing Blog Year

March 09, 2008 | 1 Minute Read

So for some reason I was looking at the archives of my blog today. I noticed that there was a gap between the years of 2004 and 2003. I obviously didn’t stop blogging completely in 2003, so I figured something was up.

I’ve been blogging for a number of years now. The earliest protoblog I had was probably on After that I switched around a lot, to places like Xanga, livejournal, Myspace (ugh, yeah, I know) and finally to my own domain where my blog resides today. I’ve made it a point to export all my old blog entries though, so I was kind of pissed to see that 2003 was nowhere to be found. Sure enough, I checked out my old livejournal (which still exists!) and exported all the posts from 2003 into my blog this afternoon.

A few notes on my blogging style of 2003:

  • I used exclamation points in my titles a lot.
  • I mostly blogged about news events. Unfortunately, Yahoo News links die fairly fast.
  • All links referencing my UNM webspace are seriously borked
  • For some reason I wrote about Ebay a lot!
  • In 2003, my blog really sucked.

There are a few noteworthy posts from that year, including the self imaging post (which links to a broken site now…), the Ebay commercial post (which links to a working video!!!) and my rant about Humpty Dumpty.

You can see all the missing posts here. If you really wanted to. Which you probably don’t.
