Just over 17 years ago I thought I’d start up a new website, LiveJournal was going though some strange times and I was using that for more locked down content anyway. I wanted somewhere I could post other stuff I found interesting.
At the time, I was playing around learning PHP and started putting together a basic content management system, Amorphia; like many of my projects it went nowhere as soon as the interesting part was done.
The hot new thing at the time was some software called WordPress, it ran on the same backend software I was targeting Amorphia at, so I installed it and started using it. I’m still using it, though that might change soon (or not).
I don’t think I planned to keep this site going for as long as I have. It barely gets any traffic that isn’t me, but I’m not pulling the plug yet, I just need to decide what I’m going to use it for. As I haven’t decided in 17 years, I don’t see the need to rush.
