I feel like a veteran of the blogging world. I may have started off making Piczo websites 5 to 6 years ago, but even then I had a blog (of sorts).
It was more of an updates section where I told my visitors about the winner of my Site of the Month (SOTM) competition, and shared what ever rubbish “blend” I had made using images of Heath Ledger. I also discussed a few personal aspects of my life, like starting GCSEs and going to the cinema to watch The Dark Knight again and again.
I wish you had known me in the Piczo days because you’d probably be laughing right now! This was genuinely what my “blog” was all about, and I loved it.
I moved on and stopped editing and destroying celebrity images. I focused on coding and learning about comment management systems. I was pretty clueless to be fair. I used Haloscan, CuteNews, FanUpdate (are you feeling nostalgic yet?) and finally WordPress.
Change is inevitable. I changed websites, commenting systems, website content, blogging style, etc. But the one thing that remained constant, and still remains constant to this day, is my belief in returning comments.
