Welcome To My Blog!
My name is Lisa Shea. I was fortunate to grow up in a computer-savvy household, using thermal-paper terminals as a child for fun. I’ve had content available on the web since 1990. On December 3rd, 2001 I purchased the domain LisaShea.com to consolidate my content in one location. This website has now been online for nearly twenty years. Over those years I’ve written tens of thousands of articles for the site and loaded up tens of thousands of images.
I wrote my very first blog post here on June 6th, 2006. At the time I used custom-written software I’d created in ASP. In September 2010 I converted my blog over to WordPress. That is what you now see here.
Note that this blog area, with its thousands of entries, is in addition to my “actual” website which is made up of over 75,000 static ASP and HTML files along with images. So searching this blog with the standard sidebar blog search will search through my WordPress blog entries but it won’t search the rest of the main (hard coded) website. To truly do a global search, powered by Google, of my entire website, blog and forums, use the box below.
As always, ask with any questions. and I’d love to hear your thoughts on my website!
