I can’t remember what game this was, but I was trying to create a username and it took me a few tries to realize that they wouldn’t let me use my name because it included the letters that spell the word “hell.” What the heck!? I deleted the game about 30 seconds later.

rachelleb.com 10th anniversary

July 28th, 2011 · 8 Comments

Last week this site quietly celebrated its 10th anniversary. My first post here was on July 19, 2001. I was living in San Diego at the time and I remember jumping on the iWalt blogging bandwagon. Walt and I shared and office, and I thought “what the heck?” and gave it a whirl. Here I am 10 years later.

I didn’t really do much to celebrate, but I did visit the Wayback Machine. This is a tool that lets you see snapshots of any website from various places in time. Like last year, as I browsed through the history of rachelleb.com, I reminisced about how in the lifetime of this blog I have changed jobs 5 times, moved to New York, moved to Chicago, co-founded Chicagoist, made friends, made more new friends, lost track of friends, met Dallas, got engaged, bought a condo, got married, and on and on. Pretty nutso!

I took a few random screengrabs of this site while I was at the Wayback Machine. Click for larger screenshots.
