It was too honest. Difficult to make money from it. It also forced users to have some kind of computer skills.

If you wanted to customize your pay layout you had to know basic HTML and CSS. Then websites came out that you could pay for layouts. Then layouts became free but were injected with malware and other shit.

I knew a bit of HTML at the time but I mostly just copied and pasted stuff from sites into the editor.

I don't remember if there were specific instructions for each element or if I already knew where to place them, though.

Only had one night of a myspace account before my dad changed my password. Apparently, he had access to my email account, and when myspace sent my login information, he saw it, changed it, then wiped my face in it.

what a dick. reminds me of when my parents found my Final Fantasy 7 fanfiction and printed it out. Then they read it to me and laughed at me about how bad it was.

"You really think anyone is going to want to read this?"

Before that I got awards in school for my writing and had even won a statewide competition in my age group.

All of that stopped when that happened I was too embarrassed to write anything that I was not forced to write for school.
