Only the very few bothered with making a website. You see, the Internet was still clunky and slow, and it required some real programming knowledge to make your own website. Back in the day, you had to understand HTML to make a website. There were no shortcuts back then, no Dreamweaver or anything like that. Building a personal website was a labor of love, something not for the faint of heart or the inexperienced.
It is funny how quickly things have changed. Nowadays, making a website is practically a rite of passage for anyone who wants to consider himself or herself tech savvy. Everyone and their mother has a blog, and the numbers are only growing. If you have not learned to make your own website, you probably feel behind by now. After all, sites such as MySpace and LiveJournal make it so easy that people who know next to nothing about the Internet are doing it.
