Homepage - 18 years later!

On April 9, 1998, I purchase this domain: cryan.com. I would have never guessed that I would still own the domain name 18 years later.

At lot has changed on the internet during that time. When I started, sites like AltaVista and Excite were the most popular search engines. Nobody did any search optimization to get on the front page.

A special thanks to Hurricane Electric, my exclusive hosting provider during the past 18 years. They have done a great job making sure the site has always was accessible. I don't think they are accepting any new hosting accounts, but I certainly do recommend them.

Looking Ahead

This year has been a busy blogging year, I am approaching 100 days of non-stop blogging. I have noticed a slight pickup in Traffic during this time too.

I was going to go all fancy and look for some cool birthday widgets from fiverr or creatativemarket, but I have been really busy focusing on content during the A-Z blogging challenge.

Remembering the Past

Here are a couple of screen shots of what the homepage looked like back in 1997 and 2013, I'll look for more screen shots and share them when I find them.
