Keikimo's Notes: April 24, 2009
I honestly don't know why I'm writing this - as no one will probably ever read this. But I wanted to write something. Probably because I'm angry. No, that's not quite right. I'm angry at Yahoo! but I'm also sad and melancholy. It feels like I'm attending a funeral. But the funeral isn't just for Geocities...it's for the person I used to be. The person who was Keikimo.
This site was my first website...created many, many eons ago. Since then, many things about me have changed. I've grown up, graduated from High School, graduated from University, got a job and moved into the adult world. I've gone through 3 computers and 5 hard drives, 17 notebooks, 3 binders full of looseleaf paper and many other assorted hastily jotted scribbles on pieces of paper. I'm a much different person now than the one who started this site.
But through it all, this site has been here - a reminder of who I was and where I've come from. It was more than just a collection of my writing, more than just another fanpage...and much more than just another lousy webpage from the 1990s. It was who I was 12 years ago. The places I linked...the places that linked to me, it's all old history. But it's my history...a piece of me.
Over the years I've continued writing. I've learned a lot more about websites and have many other homes under many other names. So it's probably a good time to put Keikimo away for good. A final posting and a final resting place of sorts.
So to anyone out there reading this - thanks. Thanks for visiting! Thanks for listening. Thanks for the memories. Thank you for being there for 12 years. It's been a blast!
RIP Geocities. RIP Keikimo.
