I began my first blog in 2004 with ubit.de/blog (which was supposed to be my portfolio domain) before I went to an internship to New York City.
It was more like my personal diary to save my moments that were not able to fit in my cell phone camera at that time. But the content was interesting enough for about 8000 Unique visitors / month – Hellya I was proud of that.
At an early stage I made my decision to use wordpress, modified the standard theme (the image above was my first header!) and installed the tracking program statcounter. Sadly my database crashed after one year and I never made a backup, so I decided not to go on blogging – until now.
