For the longest time, I have been meaning to move my Yahoo Geocities site to either a WordPress.com, Blogger.com or even my own hosting. However, the sites I have are not exactly the most cheerful site. So, I never do anything about them.
Some of my Yahoo Geocities sites are more than six years old and they are my very first venture into web building. It is like the beginning of my online adventure. From someone who doesn’t know html, I managed to grasp it after learning to make websites using Yahoo page builder.
Then, through the years, I advanced to where I am now. I know a bit of web mastering, web hosting, own several sites, has a virtual private server and make lots of money online.
Now, the end is near. Yahoo Geocities is going to close down all Yahoo Geocities sites. Here is a notice I get :
Important notice: GeoCities is closing.
Dear Yahoo! GeoCities customer,
We’re writing to let you know that Yahoo! GeoCities, our free web site building service and community, is closing on October 26, 2009.
On October 26, 2009, your GeoCities site will no longer appear on the Web, and you will no longer be able to access your GeoCities account and files.
My first Yahoo Geocities site was made by a lady from Texas, USA for me. The second one was made by me. Back then, midi files were like the most awesome thing on earth. Now, we have advanced to videos and even live tv.
Yet, the song ‘Winds Beneath My Wings’ still breaks my heart. So, I won’t be moving anytime soon. I shall wait till September 24th is over before I do that.
