If I Wrote A Blog 15 Years Ago

If I Wrote A Blog 15 Years Ago
A while ago I read a post about what topic a blogger would have covered if they had written it 15 years ago. I cannot remember who wrote this so if you remember reading/writing that post please let me know so I can give them credit.
So, 15 years ago would make 2001. After careful consideration, here is what 13 year old Tea in the Tub would have been all about. Prepare yourself for a time-warping read!
Hair braids
I loved these. Nothing was cooler. I would go back to school after the summer holidays with one on the side and think I was so chic. Not sure if I'd look quite as hippy and stylish with one now though. Actually... Maybe? No Helen. Just no.

Pokemon Cards
I think these were still at their peak in 2001. If they were then there's no doubt I would have wrote about these and maybe have hosted a Pokemon Card giveaway (or trade). I loved Pokemon cards and the memory of having some of my rares stolen at school still fills me with a long and deep pent up rage. If I find you, I will kill you.

Travel
I've wanted to travel since I was very, very young and would send off for brochures about far away magical place like Australia. One of the few things I've always known is that I am here to explore the world and my age has never clouded that vision.

Pony Magazine/Horses in general
I was very into horses back then and not being one for typically girly magazines, I probably would have discussed an article or 2 from Pony Magazine instead. A 'How to Plait a Horses Tail' post perhaps?

Neopets
My online addiction. I had a painted kau and loads of neopoints then my account got banned. Noo! Neopets became so popular that it got blocked on the school computers. Boo! IT lessons were never the same afterwards.

Mobile Phones

The year 2000 was when I had my first mobile phone for "emergencies". My friend had the latest Nokia3210 whilst I had a Mars Trium. Oh yeah! I remember being so happy when I got my own Nokia and bought a funky rainbow coloured striped case.

Dogs
My childhood into adult obsession. My blog would prominently feature dogs. Imagine 'My top 5 breeds', 'Why I want a mongrel', '50 reasons why my parents should get me a dog"etc. 15 years on and dogs still rule my life. We got our first dogs in 2003, two rescued jack russells called Max and Sadie and now I have my own little fluffy part-time model chichi Pepe.

PGL
The ultimate holiday for any child. PGL is the UK's equivalent of summer camp. I remember going away for a week doing all kinds of adventure activities, binging at the tuck shop and not a single parent was in sight!

I know you lovely readers are of various ages so I'd love to read about what you'd have written about back in 2001 so please send me a link if you decide to do it.

  4. I absolutely love this post! I think I would have wrote about similar stuff as I loved pokemon cards, neopets and hair braids! I love this idea for a post, I feel quite inspired to do one similar myself as I've enjoyed the trip down memory lane :D Thanks for sharing this :)
