The Internet Archive (if you haven’t been there before, check it out–you’ll lose hours of your life poking around) has a really cool feature called the Internet Wayback Machine. With this web application you can enter the address for a site you like and “turn back time” to see what it looked like 1, 2, 5, or (for older sites) even 10 years ago. Well, by site finally stated getting indexed by the Wayback Machine, you check out the fabulous jankiness that was by blog about 14 months ago. At this point I was getting about 50 page views a day (compared to 1100-1500 a day more recently), mostly consisting of my students checking their lesson summaries.
Click the image (or click here) to view my old site. One warning–it takes a loooooong time to load from the Internet Archive, so click the link and go get a cup of coffee. It is fun to see the utter badness of this site at that point in time.
