It’s been 7 years since Me and Leif conceptualized this site as our very own virtual home. The idea of registering this domain name came on March 17, 2001 when we started playing at being a web master. Learning HTML was a quite complicated in the beginning so it took two years before our personal website was uploaded and accessible to the world wide web.
Since the blog and blog software were unknown to us then, the updating with HTML was always complicated and at times tedious. I took the chance to update this site while learning more about the complexities of it. But after updating, I would hardly visit it again until the next update. The content that I used to update was the web album and video pages for my family and relatives in Davao to view. But still, it wasn’t as interactive as now.
Then came the blog and this blogging phenomenon that I never expected would draw some visitors to this site. It was in November last year when I decided to upload the WordPress blog platform. The updating has gone smooth and easy since then. The number of visitor has been gratifying that sometimes I miss the little privacy of this site before. Now that blogging becomes the “main attraction” of this site, I moved the personal stuffs to the dot net extension of this domain. We used to call it Lemback Home but now it’s Potpourri (of writings and thoughts).
The many “faces” of Lemback dot Com and the stories behind:

Wow, seven years? That indeed is something worth shouting about 🙂 Congratulations on your seven years 😀 I hope I can last that long.
Buti ka pa nakaka-syete anyos ka na. Ako nga wla pang kong seven months. I hope I will also be able to blog for 7 years, or kahit 5 years lang. mahirap kasi minsan ang blogging. Minsan may pera, minsan wla. Eh sa panahon ngayon tlgang kailangan nating rumaket para mabuhay. 🙁
But you see, people like you make my blogging life happy kahit walang datung na pumapasok sa kin. 🙂
Fren Jessie, pano naman kaya tayo kikita ng limpak-limpak sa blogging eh di naman tayo parehong full time bloggers, hehe. Ok na rin itong konting kinikita ko pambayad sa dsl at smartbro sa mga kapatid ko sa dvo, hehe. Ganun nga, nakaka-inspire din yung kahit iilang visitors, di ba. Thanks, naman. Likewise.
Yay!! Happy Birthday to Lemback!! 🙂
Oh, thank you so much, Rozella. Your greeting makes my day 🙂
Happy anniversary to Lemback dot com. Buti ka pa naalala mo kelan ka nagstart, ako kasi hindi, haha! Sa angelfire ako dati, pero di ko maalala kung 1999 o 2000 yun basta naalala ko lang second sem yun, haha. Pero ang domain ko mag 6 years pa lang sa august.
Anyway, it’s nice to know a good friend like you through lemback dot com.
Thanks, Amor. Nagkataon lang na naitanong ko kay hubby kasi I remember it was after my appendicitis surgery yun. Ah, parang familiar sa kin yang angelfire. Naku, zero kaalaman talaga ako dati, kahit sa yahoo geocities nun di ko nga mabuo-buo hahaa…
Likewise din sa Amorfrancis. Hehe, di ko akalain hanggang ngayon tuloy pa rin kontak natin but now through blogging na.
Happy anniversary to lemback.com!Wow! i can’t believe your blog turn 7 years already.I enjoy reading your story.Everytime you bring out an interesting post that addict me to read more.Nice knowing you trhough blogesphere.:)
Thanks, Sweetiepie. Hehe, but now I can’t think of any interesting topic to write. Just like what you posted on your blog, my mind goes black-out. Nice knowing you, too, sweetie. And thanks for being a nice blogger.
Happy 7th blog birthday, and looking forward to many years to come.
Oh, thank you so much, Ada. Looking forward to your cool scramories, too.

Gee, I tot I left a comment here yesterday but it’s not showing up. Hmmm ….
Anyway, just wanted to say, Happy 7th Blog Birthday 🙂
Aww, saying this Nick, I checked immediately my comments spam section and there was it among the 7 spam-comments. I don’t understand, it’s the same url and email add but how it was spammed. It’s Akismet in WordPress’ fault.
Anyway, i’ve de-spammed it and it’s on top of this comment section, it means you were the one who’s left comment on this post.
And thank you very much. With your style and humor in writing, i’m sure your blog will last long. 🙂
