I have blogging since 2001, back in the day when Pitas.com was the social networking of choice and if you had Greymatter or B2 running on your self-hosted domain you were the bee’s knees of geekery. Weblogs pretty much started out with short-form posts chock-full of links to various articles and memes online, much like Twitter these days.
In April 2019, during Easter break, I was browsing through my old links list and came across Kottke.org, arguably the godfather of blogs, which still retained the old-school flavor of hypertext link sharing rather than long-form ramblings (the latter may have been perpetuated by Blogger and LiveJournal midway through the Noughties).
On 11th May 2019, I registered registered shi.ph for want of a more concise and exotic domain, originally meant to be used as my web collective. However, I decided to use this domain as a blog and preferred using a .com TLD for my collective. Eventually, Very Shirley would be the portal to my webites. My personal journal is located at Shi Bytes.
