But this was all that mattered!
Five years ago, blogging was just becoming popular with larger audiences and becoming mainstream. It was still acceptable to write long, journal-like posts, with no pictures!
In the far-east we uploaded pictures on a dial-up connection and therefore couldn’t do it very often. No one expected live-blogging. A week or two could pass with no post, and people thought nothing of it.
Our blog, had very few gadgets; we didn’t have blogger friends, you couldn’t “like” a post on facebook and we most definitely didn’t use twitter to get real-time tips!
We hadn’t heard of Scribd, didn’t have multiple pages, and had to know html in order to format posts! Oh, how far we’ve come. It seems like only yesterday!
