Many years have passed since my introduction to the internet. It must have been something like 1997 when I first starting exploring this fascinating e-world. In all these years, I must have created around 20+ online accounts with different companies, serving different purposes: From email like hotmail, yahoo, gmail or the old ones at Uni (Granada and Portsmouth) to social networks like Myspace, Facebook, Hi5, WAYN, etc.
I have to admit it. All those “virtual” me’s were purely a cry-out to the world, saying “LOOK AT ME”. An ego-trip. Self-esteem booster. Conceited definitions of myself. Pure narcissism. I don’t deny it.
But I suppose I have reached a time in my life when I don’t really need this anymore. Turning 30 has really been a turning point in my life! Okay, yes, I will still be addicted to the internet, I won’t lie, but I am tired of wondering “what is the meaning” anymore. One can’t go cold turkey with the internet. It doesn’t work, I’ve tried it before. So I think the solution is having everything under one single roof: your own personal website.
