A little old-school flair (aka. my new guestbook)

Lately, I’ve been reminiscing about what websites were like in the days before blogging. It wasn’t “the dark ages”, though you could be forgiven for thinking so given how many things pop and flash and bubble and bounce across social media these days.

And by the way, did you know there are people who think social media is the internet? Please don’t laugh at them. Big social media giants love this and sometimes work little tricks into their app and web design to make us forget that the rest of the web exists.

But it still exists. There’s a huge expanse of it beyond the corporate-sponsored confines.

Well, in an attempt to preserve some of the beauty of yesteryear, I’ve decided to swap out site and blog comments for an old-fashioned guestbook.

Maybe not so old-fashioned. There’s a privacy statement and comment moderation now, which we didn’t have back when I first started making websites. So don’t worry, your email address isn’t about to be hung up in lights for every spammer and their dog to see.

You can check out an example on the guestbook itself, and leave a message at the same time. Thanks for stopping by!
