I forgot all about it, and then in 2004, we noticed it was getting thousands of views every month, so I thought I'd put up some more, and give the site it's own domain name. It was all done just in the spirit of sharing, and I enjoyed every minute of it.

My husband Sheldon ran a web design business at the time, as well as servers for web hosting, which made the whole thing affordable/doable, back when bandwidth was expensive. (This was pre-YouTube! Can you imagine? ) Nothing like it existed, so it immediately took off, which was pretty thrilling.
