I celebrated my 20th blogiversary on May 7. Here are some stats:

- 1,633,887 page views.
- 2865 blog posts.

I will keep this blog running here on Blogger's Blogspot, but my main focus will be my "last" forthcoming site, TeaParty.Media. If you want to support my blogging and podcasting, you are welcome to buy med a cuppa on BuyMeACoffee.com/Lyceum. How should I celebrate 20 years as a blogger, on my birthday on May 25?

Please take a moment and listen to episode 126 of EGO NetCast podcast, and then spread the good word! Thanks for reading my blogs, commenting on posts, listening to my podcasts, and sharing my stuff on the different social media platforms out there in cyberspace.

Wow...20 years! Congratulations.I haven't even completed 10 :) And I started directly on WordPress.

So interesting to hear about all your stories when you had to use coding to blog. Life has become much easier nowadays, I guess, with drag-and-drop builders and so many easy-to-use content management systems.

Hi Martin,

I started on BlogSpot, way back in 2005 - still not 20 years let but nearly there. I started blogging with a platform known as Yahoo GeoCities or something. They shut down their doors some time back... Had to pretty much code your way into blogging back then, but a few years later I found the blogger platform and moved onto it.

Good to know your blog turned 20, congrats :)

Uttoran: Great to hear your story! Thanks for sharing! Maybe you could write a post on it in the future? I remember GeoCities. I had a place there too.

All the Best,

Martin

lol. Yes, hand-coded in HTML. It was not that fancy. Aside from HTML, I recall using a bit of PHP, which I never really learned and is long-forgotten now. But I got some help at the time and I was able to replicate as needed once the syntax was shown to me.

I had created a web directory in the same way - hand coded with html and it made some money too from paid submission :P

@Lyceum Hi Martin. I've been "blogging" before there was such a word. I was creating articles and structuring them as a blog. Ah, the wild wilderness of the early internet.

Wow David! Did you code by hand in HTML? Did you create unique permalinks for the articles? You are a world wide web pioneer!

All the Best,

Martin

Yeah, that is a long time as well - my bizsugar account was created in 2010.
