I don’t remember exactly when I started my first website, but it was quite possibly around 1998 or so. Like all websites back then, when the web was a smaller place and no one knew what “blogging” was or even what dynamic web design meant, mine was pretty pathetic, aimless, and a waste of lousy HTML.
BradNelson.com came into existence around 2004, bought mostly for the vanity email address, but also as a place to display assorted drivel and whatever I feel like. And serve as a base for criticism of EricByers.com.
At certain points in its history, BradNelson.com has had high purpose, steady readership (besides my mom), and consistent updates. That era has long passed. While I love the idea of random blogging, posting a photo here, a snippet of text there, or a link to something cool, I don’t have the discipline to do it regularly and I know that with the other two billion “bloggers” already doing this, I have nothing unique to offer.
As it currently stands, BradNelson.com is a place for me to share photos and musings. Nothing too exciting, but all original.
