I started blogging around the late 90’s, but didn’t get serious about it until 2000-2001 using the original Blogger service. Later, some friends who owned their own domains hosted me and I embarked on the road to self-hosted blogging programs, namely Greymatter, b2, and WordPress.
My now-defunct blogs were
- blog.kuririnmail.com/bluemango (still online)
- mangoyum.blogspot.com (still online)
Mangolove.net was the first domain I ever owned and still holds a special place in my heart I learned a valuable lesson when I lost it: Do not buy your domain and hosting together.
The domain, mangopapaya.net, was purchased in 2010 after a failed effort to get Mangolove.net back I was first hosted by the lovely Mica of Pink Host but now call Misaki’s Three Words Hosting home.
