I started my first blog back in 1996 back when Angelfire.com launched and gave people the opportunity to create individual html pages. I started out by editing my index.html page on a daily basis until I felt the page was simply too long. I decided to break down my posts by month and calling each of those pages something like 1996-10.html. Each time I created an html page for a new month, I would manually add a link to it in a file called archive.html. When people would come to my index.html page, they would see the link, on the side of my site, linking them to the archives.
Back then, I was calling it an “online journal.” About a year later, I adopted the term “web log.” Before I knew it, people started calling them blogs and tools like “Blogger” came along and made all this stuff so much easier. Today, I am using WordPress, my blogging/site platform of choice.
When I discovered podcasting, I feel in love with the concept of sharing my thoughts in audio form and have since created well over 2,700 episodes of audio podcast content. However, I still try to find time to occasionally blog between podcast episodes here on my Podcast Answer Man blog and my gspn.tv Community Blog.
