    I thought it would be fun if we all shared our first post here on BHW.

    I can start of by showing my first post:
    I was so proud of making $5/day, I remember it like it was yesterday lol.

    How can I see my first post? I used the Wayback Machine to find mine as I did a couple of searches on Google and it would take forever to find the first one.

    Don't be ashamed... share your first post!

    I just checked and my first post was letting people know about www.wish.com

    I thought it would be a great site for IMers to milk as it was still really in start up mode.

    Ironically, someone thought it was my own site and I was self-promoting because it was my first post after joining BHW 3 years previously (ironic, because I am now the guy, who when an old account makes a first post after 2 or 3 years, my first thought is always 'bought account').

    Wish recently hit a valuation of $3billion, so I wish the person who pulled me up for self-promotion was correct.

    My first post was my thread in the Introductions section.
    Some interesting notes about my first post:
    • The website that I mentioned creating when I was 9 was actually created when I was 11 (I'm not sure why I put 9, although I may have been referencing an experience I had with the Internet at that age) and it was absolutely terrible. It had about 10 poorly-coded pages about dragonflies, ponds, and what attracts dragonflies to ponds; and no monetisation.
    • I had actually found out about Black Hat World a bit sooner before joining, but it wasn't until 2 weeks prior to my join date that I began finding useful information (which made me choose Black Hat World over WickedFire and Warrior Forum).
    • When I mentioned not being a newcomer to the Internet, I was talking about my experience with making money online (around $500 over the course of 2 weeks) at the age of 15 by referring people to a GPT website (referral marketing). I later posted the rest of the story here on Black Hat World in this thread and referenced it again in this thread. Interestingly enough, I was more excited about making my first $8.59 with affiliate marketing (I even started a thread about it, that's how excited I was) than I was about making the $500 because I was relieved to know that Clickbank wasn't a scam and affiliate marketing was new to me.

    Go to "My Profile" and click on "Find Latest Started Threads" if your first post was a thread.

    You can always try "Find Latest Posts" although that may not go too far back.

    It was in a thread about whether money can buy happiness not too long ago.
