Saturday Night Fun - The Wayback Machine: A Walk Down Jessica's Genejournal Memory Lane

It has been awhile since I participated in a Saturday Night Fun challenge due to the fact that school work has kept me quite busy until now, but since I have a little time, I've decided to participate again. For this challenge, Randy has challenged other genealogy bloggers to look up their blog in the Wayback Machine, and write about their findings. I've decided to participate in the challenge.

I tried to save a picture of the page, but I was unsuccessful. So, instead, I've decided to post the link for the page.

The interesting thing about the Wayback Machine's image of my blog is that the site did not capture an image of my blog until late June 2007. I started posting back in March of 2007, but the blog probably wasn't recorded by the Wayback Machine until probably June when I think I started to participate in the genealogy blog carnivals.

Well, the old web page is pretty close to what the blog looked like in the very beginning. I used to use different colored fonts until one my readers informed me that it was easier to read my posts in black, so I switched to just using black. Of course, I think this was prior to the time when I started making changes to the background and template of the blog in an attempt to give this blog a unique appearance. I think I finally succeed in that attempt.

Well, I never imagined at that time that I would still be blogging after three years, but here I am still blogging years later. I hope you enjoyed that walk down memory lane.
