I registered the domain in 1997, and launched the site that summer. I posted a dream journal and online diary, hand coded in HTML, before the existence of blogger.com.
Yahoo! even counted me among the "Cool People" in 1997-1998. (How far have I fallen?!)
This is dated 1998, just over 10 years ago. I don't know whether to laugh or cry. (When I'm met with that decision, I usually laugh. It's just my natural tendency.)
At the bottom of the page you will notice the "People Chase" webring code. Webrings are soooo 1997. I bet the LOLcats of today wouldn't even know what they are.
UPDATE: Here's what the site looked like in June 2000, complete with clickable links.
