I’m going to share a secret web site with you.
The site is my very first blog! I dare you to take a look at the date of the first post at http://virtualselling.blogspot.ca/
Virtualselling.com is a domain I purchased in 1996, yes you read that correctly its 16 years old. What was hard about web sites back then was creating and editing them! You had to know HTML or pay a designer to create sites for you.
A bit later expensive and hard to use WYSIWYG web site editors like Frontpage and Dreamweaver were popular but it was still hard to create simple web site. that is until 2001. That year a funny little startup called blogspot came along and made it easy for ANYONE to publish their stuff on the internet. And they helped me produce my first blog.
Since then I create a hundreds of web sites using the blogging ideas, tactics and strategies I discovered, tested and tweaked with Blogging http://www.bloggingsecrets.com/ .
I’d be surprised if you actually heard of blogspot. If I remember correctly they went on to become “Blogger” and were later purchased by Google. I learned a ton of Blogging Secrets http://www.bloggingsecrets.com/ and more importantly was introduced to the wonderful WordPress Software that gave small business owners the ability to Host their own blogs on their own domain. the rest they say is history.
