an editable web site
This was a dull iteration using a MySQL database. Its only good feature was that I could edit the site online, as long as I didn't want anything fancy like picture thumbnails. But I didn't tend to do this. I could have just used Wordpress, to be honest. And when I eventually wanted to move off MySQL all my posts were trapped in there. Dark days.
This was the era when social networks were beginning to ramp up, and I got my first smartphone. The Web felt old fashioned. I was also writing content for a living, and didn't much feel like doing more of it at home.
