My original site was started back in 1997 at the behest of my older brother. After nearly constant badgering on his part, I connected to the Internet and started a personal web page. We spent countless hours online 'chatting' while he taught me the basics of HTML and gave me advice. The site became rather large and contained a multitude of different topics ranging from politics and religion, to hermit crabs and lizards. I learned to develop my own graphics and had a lot of fun. It would take literally hours for visitors to see all the site contained. I won 'awards' from other site owners, was a member of a dozen or so webrings and also was the ringmaster of one of my own webrings. I averaged about 150 visitors a day. Not bad for a personal website, especially when you take into account the millions of sites out there. Of course I chose to completely wipe it out and start over.
Here is a blog which a friend of mine began and in which I participate. So, after you check out the rest of this page, go check out his business website.
This is where I would normally have the links to the rest of the site.
