R.I.P. GeoCities

April 24, 2009 / Posted by:

Back in the day when caveman roamed the Earth, Larry King could change his own diaper and the internet was still a toddler, there was a thing called GeoCities. GeoCities was a place where everyone could go and build their own website in a quick minute for free. Actually, it probably took a few hours, because of that dial-up crap. Well, GeoCities is now dead. A truly sad day on the world wide webs.

GeoCities took my webmaster cherry and turned me into the full-blown webmaster WOMAN I am today. Sadly, I couldn’t find my old site and don’t even remember what it was about. I didn’t cuddle with it as much as I should have, because I spent most of my time doing ho shit in AOL chat rooms. Memories.

Yahoo! announced that they will be closing GeoCities at the end of the year leaving millions without an internet home! So you better get your fix of Karyn White, Jeremy Jordan and Tony! Toni! Tone! fansites before they go away forever!

You will be missed GeoCities!
