I started this particular vintage of my personal weblog four years ago today. I’ve had a personal website much longer than that — the first evidence that Alexa has on us was dated 10/19/98. Almost a year later, the site had taken initial form — edited at the time using Microsoft FrontPage.
Four years ago when I was moving from FrontPage to a true weblog, the blogging tool I used (before it was even called blogging!) was Radio Userland. In july 2003, I migrated the site to using SixApart’s TypePad service which is where it’s resided ever since. I’m an avid fan of MarsEdit on the Mac for all of the writing I do both here and over on Payments News.
