I’m finally getting around to seriously book writing like I’ve been talking about for 10 years. Found a blog post from 2005 where I said I was writing a book [insert crying emoji]. April marks 10 years of blogging on my own blog platform. I rediscovered my old MySpace blogs today now that you can finally download them. MySpace had originally deleted ALL blogs without warning. Downloaded a heap of posts and went through all the HTML files renaming them. It felt good. Unfortunately I’ve lost my first, first ever blog from MicrosoftSpaces back in 2004 (they stopped helping users recover them in 2012).
How To Download Your Classic MySpace Blog:
- Dig up that old login you haven’t used in ages and login to MySpace
- Go to to settings
- Click Account
- On the left you’ll see an option to migrate old photos to a new album and download old blogs
- Download. Took about 60 seconds to download my 100 posts in a .zip file
- Fall in love with your elf again OR have heaps of laughs at your MySpace selfies
One of the things I learned today was I haven’t changed that much. Well, I have but some things are still the same. I’m really inspired my going back over my old stuff and incredibly thankful that I didn’t give up and stop writing even though sometimes I really didn’t feel like blogging anymore. See 10 posts titled ‘Sometimes I don’t feel like it‘ here.
Recovered these old quizzes I shared back in 2006 from MySpace. Hahahaha Buzzfeed, you’re just stealing old ideas! Still love the Olsen Twins, still style twinning Nicole Richie, and still love summer.
I remember reading this quote in high school and thought, I will write things worth reading and do things worth writing about, watch me! And that was after I’d already written a poetry book called JEANS and started a small independent publishing company w/ my friend Holly. I’ve always been determined to make things and do things. The winter months are perfect for working on your plan to conquer the world.
I’m feeling really excited for the winter. I hope the weather’s not that bad but I am content to hibernate and write and work on stuff.
Canada, I hope you’re having a great Thanksgiving weekend. Everyone else, SUNDAY FUNDAY! Working on a post about things I’m thankful for. Feeling pretty happy and the sun is shining bright 🙂
