As an almost complete computer illiterate I launched my original web site The Joy to You & Me Web Site on February 28th, 1998 @ http://www.silcom.com/~joy2meu. To say it was very crude, is a kindness. But I kept working at it and improving it. It evolved over the year into a pretty functional web site - at least, in terms of my purpose and intent which was to share content rather than to be a graphics designer. That is still my intent and purpose, as a matter of fact - to share my experience, strength, and hope. And, of course, it would make me real happy to sell a bunch of my books in the process.
When I launched my domain site, Joy2MeU, on February 4th 1999, I started transferring pages from my original site to the new site. I had the intention all along of keeping Joy to You & Me going indefinitely - if for no other reason than the realities of the web dictate that I would have to keep an account with silcom.com even if it was just to post a referral page to the new site, so why not keep that site going. Part of the reality of the world wide web is that it takes some time to get a site established so that it is getting found on search engines and through referrals from other sites. Even now, January 31st 2000, as I get ready to post my redesign of Joy2MeU.com in recognition of the first anniversary of that site and the second of the silcom site, the silcom site is still getting more hits than the site that has only been out there a year. I believe that will change in the coming months but still have no plans to drop the Joy to You & Me site any time in the foreseeable future.
I have transferred all of the pages from the old site to the new, and kept adding additional pages to both so that they contain the same basic information. The only difference is the pages that are listed on this page. I have no plans (or time) to transfer these pages to Joy2MeU any time soon - so I provide links here to those pages for anyone interested in checking them out. The Newsletters and Question & Answer pages actually form kind of a chronicle of the evolution of the web site through the later half of 1998 - as well as chronicling my journey, my process through those months. So, here they are for your perusal. I hope you find some enjoyment and/or some helpful insights.
