Five Years Ago This Week – 8/30/2003

by john on August 30, 2008

Every Saturday I’ll be reaching deep into the archives. Here is what I was writing about this coming week, five long years ago:

Back to Webalizer – At the time I was switching between Sawmill and Webalizer. Of course now it’s just Google Analytics.

The Dooce Effect – Demonstrating Heather Armstrong’s cool photo technique in Paintshop Pro.

Minnesota State Fair – I didn’t go to the fair that year (I didn’t this year either) but that doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through someone else.

Getting Greedy – Being new to Adsense I was just starting to figure out how to monetize. I wish I would have started the niche blogs I mentioned at the time, though.

Jonesing for a good book – My first post on selling books, in which I conclude: Selling my own books. It’s sort of like stabbing myself in the chest. Of course I would go on to actually break through this fear and learn to sell my own books on Amazon.

Amazon gets it – Amazon’s order history features put it in a league of it’s own.

Comment Spam Solutions – Starting to get hit with comment spam, I work through a few options. Akismet rules now of course.

Yahtzee – Quick link to a cool online Yahtzee game.

That was a pretty busy posting week, which I guess is to be expected coming off of a vacation like I was five years ago. Not so this year!
