History of Gymrat’s Weblog
In the winter of 1993 I got my first taste of the net at Solace Computer Society in Sundsvall, Sweden. It was an instant addiction, making the previous BBS dependency extinct. This weblog, in one form or another, has been online since 1995, when I started making a home page about my biggest interest(s).
First the bodybuilding page consisted mainly of a link directory (called Premier Bodybuilding Links) updated with new interesting web additions in bodybuilding, weightlifting, powerliftning and fitness. It also had a couple of female muscle galleries (Cory Eversons physique has perhaps been matched, but never surpassed)… See screenshot 1 after the jump.
In 1997 the weblog got its current name, Gymrat’s Weblog. It was still hosted at Solace Computer Society, Sundsvall on Midswedens University and last updated in October of 2001. See screenshot 2 after the jump.
From May 2000 the combined Swedish/English version of Gymrat’s Weblog was incarnated on B&K Sports Magazine’s (now BODY Magazine) Swedish website, for which I was (and am) webmaster. It was updated almost daily until november 2001, when I lost interest in updating a weblog manually. See screenshot 3 after the jump.
In the summer of 2006 Gymrat’s Weblog is back in full force in English. With the ease of current software managing a weblog is smoother than ever. It will feature the many different types of news items I come across in my work as webmaster for the Swedish bodybuilding and fitness magazine, BODY Magazine.
