Your First Website
« on: October 24, 2012, 05:38:49 pm »
To all the webmasters and web developers out there, what was your first website? What was it about? How long did it last?



My first website was "simLink's SimCity Hub" - a site developed on Weebly. It is still up today, located at http://simlinksc.weebly.com

It is a general site about SimCity 4, with a focus on what I do in the game and my first CJ Windemere & Taschereau. UPdates ceased around June, as work with my latest CJ ramped up, including its own website, and as my attention shifted to Simopsis.

I may soon close the site - I stopped promoting it long ago and it no longer receives much traffic. I need the room on Weebly (they limit you to 2 sites when on the paid service) for a little something I'm working that. Or I could build a full fledged site, as well.



So how about you guys... what was your first website?

I have a now defunct forum site (No URL it doesn't exist anymore) that focused on Minecraft and Sim City 4. Started in '10 the only traffic it got was friends and a couple of others and we all agreed to shut it down.

My first site was an SC4 site which lasted about a year. Although I spent 10 months of that ignoring it so it didn't grow above 10 members. Back then I sort of just... sucked at websites so... :P

I stopped updating my first site fairly short into starting it, due to starting other projects. One turned into Holt District. The other Simopsis.

I guess ignoring the site not very far into its life wasn't that bad of an idea. :P

If any of you guys think your first attempts at websites were dumb, you have no idea what mine was like. I will present no URLs. It was when I was about nine years old, just to give you an idea. I also wrote the whole thing out entirely with HTML, with no help from templates. Enough said. :P
