MySpace Days

MySpace was one of the first social networks I joined in 2003. I enjoyed getting to know people from all over the world. I also loved the interactions between musicians and fans.

I was trying to conceive during my second year on the site, and I found a group of women who were a lot like me going through the same struggles with fertility. I'm still friends with two group members to this day. I spent hours posting on groups!

As time went on MySpace turned a little scary. Sex workers and desperate garage bands were the only people joining and posting. Facebook took most people's attention and by the beginning of 2009 my once favorite website turned into a virtual ghost land. 

MySpace is still online. It's now basically a music service. I think it will completely disappear in the next few years, but the memories I made will always have a special place in my heart.
