Resourceful Mommy Media

My first blog that was called a blog was ResourcefulMommy.com, but I remember creating a Geocities page in the summer of 1997. Ahhh, Geocities…

It is a matter of some debate and depends on your definition because I blogged before there was a thing called blogging 🙂

Back in the mid-90s I had a website about science fiction (TV shows like Star Trek, Dr Who, Red Dwarf etc) that was reverse chronological
and allowed people to comment so I guess it was that. I didn’t start a personal diary type site until 1998 when I felt I had something to
write about (we got married, I started a new job, and was trying for a baby).

An old newspaper column that I self-published because the paper I wrote for didn’t have a website. It was called “Falls, off the Rocker.” The URL now points to my personal blog where I still get frisky from time to time but mostly just post pictures of my kids.

This is my first blog, although I wrote magazine columns for more than a decade before starting Convince & Convert.

Oh wow, I don’t even remember the domain! In 2002 I started a b2evolution blog (pre WordPress) and it was basically me trying to get my thoughts out of my head. But it was too scattered and didn’t make any sense and the responsibility of blogging burned me out. It wasn’t until teaming up with Aaron Brazell (@technosailor) and others that my current (largely dormant these days) blog at Ensight.org came to life – it started out (2003) as a group blog focused just on the intersection of business and technology.

All I’ll say is it was on Blogger and it was 2004. Since archived.

My first blog is my most important blog, ZacJohnson.com. I started the blog on St. Patricks day in 2007, and have been focusing on it’s growth ever since.
