On this day back in 1999, my veterinary medicine site went live on About.com. That was 112 dog-years ago, and about.com was known as The Mining Company. The Internet was a baby back then, Google hadn’t even been born yet.* I learned a lot during those years, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity to meet so many wonderful people – online and in real life – during those years.
Now it is time to move on.
It was tough and took many weeks of pondering, but I made the choice to start fresh and refocus. I have many ideas in the works and that in itself is energizing. In the meantime, I guess I should figure out how LinkedIn works.
Watch this space for new pet posts, articles, and photos. Thank you for all of the wonderful support at about.com over the years!
*Update: My dear husband just informed me that I made a mistake. Google was born September of 1998. I started training at The Mining Company in December 1998. I stand corrected. Google was not on my radar during those early days. Alta Vista, anyone?
