Happy Anniversary with WordPress.com

Just had a notification on this blog:

“You registered on WordPress.com 6 years ago!

Having had a presence online since the early 90s on various platforms, forums and message boards before running my own web business from 1998, I’ve been filling the search engines ever since!
