Last Updated: 9/3/17
My first web page was created September, 1997. They were re-done beginning in June, 1998, and completed in August, 1998 separating nine pages into 46 pages (and 3 out of order pages with link to new page). I recently put up the old July 1998 version of my web site with nine pages on this subdirectory for fun. Since then, more pages have been added as well and others have been separated. In early 1999, pond and aquarium care pages were separated from two pages into nine pages. This was all to make the pages more user-friendly (shorter). On 3/21/01, I created my 100th web page! These pages may not be fancy but that is because I use HTML code in WordPerfect 6.0 to write them and use no special programs to make these pages!
Robyn's most-often visited page (until 2003) was Robyn's Fishy Page which had over 73628 visitors from 9/97 to 6/03! Considering there were 136 pages (6/03) mostly without counters, the total number of visitors to Robyn's various pages was most likely well over 100,000.
On 5/3/03, I registered the URL fishpondinfo.com. On 8/30/03, I bought hosting for it. The grand opening of this new and updated site was on 10/4/03! Thanks for visiting!
On 3/20/04, I opened the Fishpondinfo Store so be sure to check it out! If you buy something fishy, it goes to pay for the cost of this website. I also started an Amazon store on 9/1/06. Thanks!
I made my 200th page on this site on 3/30/04! I think there are about 235 separate URL's on my site as of 11/11/04 but I may be off by a few! My 300th page went up on this site on 2/11/06. My 400th page went up on 1/13/07. I recounted my lists of files and found I miscounted and fixed it up to 418 pages on 1/20/07. I passed my 600th page on 9/12/09.
The site passed a million unique visitors since moving to Fishpondinfo.com by Thanksgiving 2004. Fishpondinfo hit 2 million unique visitors on 8/1/05, gaining a million in just 9 months! On 2/18/06, my counter went over 3 million visitors, gaining a million in 6.5 months. I wonder what my total hit counts were from 1997 to 10/03 when it moved (I did not have a full site counter then). I had to switch from the counter we were using to counts from the server which may count each page opened instead of each visitor. Due to this, by 6/10/06, the count passed over 4 million. The counter was redone in a different way (actual hits not unique) so it went up faster and passed 5 million on 9/2/06 and 6 million on 12/16/06 and 7 million on 3/17/07. Wow, how can it go up that fast? I am using the hits (not unique) from my server for those numbers. It went past 8 million on 5/26/07. The hits totaled over 9 million by 8/4/07. It was 10 million by 10/27/07, 11 million by 2/17/08, 12 million by 6/9/08, 13 million by 9/27/08, 14 million by 2/21/09, 15 million by 6/20/09, 16 million by 10/31/09, 17 million by 4/3/10, 18 million by 7/24/10, 19 million by 12/11/10, 20 million by 6/11/11, 21 million by 12/10/11, 22 million by 6/8/12, 23 million by 8/25/12, 24 million by 11/3/12, 25 million by 2/23/13, 26 million by 4/21/13, 27 million by 5/20/13, 28 million by 7/6/13, 29 million by 10/12/13, 30 million by 3/15/14, 31 million by 6/7/14, 33 million by 12/20/14, 34 million by 5/18/15, 35 million by 6/28/15 (really, one month?), 36 million by 11/7/15, 37 million by 4/30/16, 38 million by 10/3/16, 39 million by 4/18/17.
I started a web site at http://www.pondshowcase.com that officially became functional on 8/5/06 after many months of work. This site lets people show off their ponds.

Here are some non-animal-related web sites.
You should visit my brother's homepage. It includes a few shareware games which I helped him create. You can download them and have hours of fun! The games include a move-based war strategy game called Tank Regime for two players. I helped with the error checking, graphics, and sounds. Also, he has a program which allows non-programmers to create adventure games. It is called GAGBI (graphic adventure game builder for idiots). I wrote a game using it. UMBC deleted both our accounts by 2006, and my brother has yet to put his web site elsewhere so the link below is to an archived version.
