In an effort to make some progress on my 2013 Goal of converting my old static blog to Typepad, I loaded my old website's files onto my Microsoft SkyDrive account.
The way I figure it, when I want to start converting, I can just open a file from SkyDrive and copy/paste it into Typepad. Should be easy, right?
Once I loaded all the files into SkyDrive, I started reading some of my early "posts." Wow. Talk about coming a long way. My posts were, at most, a paragraph long in the beginning. And pretty inane, to be honest.
What I found most interesting was the content of the posts, though. Since I started writing in early 1998, I wasn't with Katie yet. In fact, I was dating someone else altogether. And a few of my posts were about that relationship. I don't remember writing this stuff at all, but it's still kinda fun to take that walk down memory lane.
Have you ever found old files or diaries or the like and gone back and read what happened in your life at a given point in the past? What did you (re)discover? Anything fun you'd like to share? Incriminating?
