Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge — The First Website …
It’s time again for the Wednesday Weekly Blogging Challenge hosted by Long and Short Reviews.
Today’s topic is: The first website I remember visiting.
Y’all, I can’t remember what I had for breakfast never mind the first website I visited 25+ years ago. I will tell you the first website I visited regularly and the site I have to thank for meeting one of my very best friends in the whole world, Judy Thomas.
Writer’s Village University
I wonder if they’re still around ( ::: runs off to check ::: )
They ARE. Here: https://www.writersvillage.com/intro/
Interestingly, several of the staff there are also writing friends, many of whom I met online in the groups and classes they offered.
I don’t know if they’re as good or if they offer similar things as they used to, but I owe so much of my success as a writer, and so many of my good friends I have now, to the site. I learned so many things, participated in amazing classes, was part of several incredible groups and found superb critique partners there.

It’s cool that they’re still around!
Websites don’t usually seem to last so long, so they must be doing something right! 🙂🙂
A great site and backatcha, friend! We need to start thinking about September.. it’s not that far off.
Glad you’ve kept in touch all these years.
I have a real weak spot for sites that formed real communities and where people made genuine friendships with people they’d never met in person, especially back in the days when you were supposed to be afraid of Anyone You Met On The Internet(tm). So many of those sites were formative for so many different people…
I’m impressed they’re still around!
Considering how many websites have disappeared over the years, it’s always nice to find one from the ‘old days’ that’s still around!
