How did you first hear about my website?greenspun.com : LUSENET : mildew : One Thread
When was the first time you found Mildew? How did you get there? How have you managed to stick with me through the moves and changes?

I've been reading your journal for four years!
I'm not sure exactly how I found your site. Because we both visited Sage's Coffee Shakes site and posted comments there, etc. I assume that I found your URL on her site... however, I might have found you through a search for journals and it was simple coincidence that we both hung out at Sage's site (the world was smaller then.) You were a high school freshman then, now you're a college sophomore... that's a big chunk of time.
Hey, how come your site doesn't appear at the Online Diary History Project site? Your journal has been up longer than mine... and I'm there... c'mon, quick, before you get swamped with school work, write up your recollections of the early days of journaling on the web and email it to Cara.

Well, let's see here... The first time I found Mildew was before we were going out, back when you were first *ahem* missing from school. I heard rumor... from Hansen, maybe? That information might be at your web site. That was the first time I'd actually seen the page. And then it was hosted on my site, and then it wasn't, and now it is again. I missed you. =)

i don't remember. it was a long time ago. i think i got a link from meri's site...or lila's lemons or something....god, do you remember the teen webpage scene then? it cracks me up to think about it. But yeah, i've stuck with you pretty much...I lost you a few times, but i've been around for most of it.

Oh man, the teen scene was freaking hilarious back in "the day"!
Lila's Lemons.. teehee. Okay, I'm done having my funny moment now. :)
-- Emily (firstname.lastname@example.org), September 04, 2000.
i have no idea how i found it... but it would've been back in, oh, 1996 or so? yes back in the lila's lemons era, hehe. i actually only just found your page again through kate though, i haven't seen it for about two years maybe? so that's a nice surprise! i never managed to stick through all the moves etc but somehow in the end i always manage to stumble back over your page again, at least for a little while...

I've just now stumbled onto your little website and have been reading the entries till my eyes became all swollen and red. I'm certain the damage is permanent, but i think it was worth it. You see, i'm a voyeur of sorts, and just discovered all this "online journal" business. It's like TV "reality based" programming without TV level mediocrity. So i like that. I'm a 2nd psych major, and i'm curious as to what motivates people, their dreams, creativity, relationships... all that business. I'm not much the introspective type, so your diary fascinates me. At any rate, i like to remain completely anonymous because i don't trust the internet one bit. It's just a new medium that makes it easier for con artists to mess around with your shit. This of course makes me wonder how people like yourself feel comfortable enough to post such personal things about themselves on the web. It's fucking madness. P.S. I like your site... the colors are pretty. P.P.S. Lawrence Fishbourne is spectacular.

I typed "I Hate School" into Netscape and you were what the search pulled up. It said something about oboe. I played oboe all through high school and figure, fuck it. I'll look.

I found Mildew recently, only been reading for a week or so. ThreeWay Action led me here - I like reading your posts so I thought it'd be interesting reading your journal.
