I passed my 5 year mark just this past August, and it made me all retrospective. What have you learned in the part 5 years, how has your life and career changed in that time?
Can you find your first post in the archives?
this is one of them:
How 'bout another 5? :) congrats
Congrats HelenDev. :)
I also hit 5 years this year. Boy, how the time flies.
Congrats, and here's to the next 5!
I have stopped counting!
Cheers guys :)

Yes, I was thinking about that too - where I was when I joined compared to where I am now.
When I joined WW in 2003 I was in my second web dev job and although it was very educational, I knew it was not a place I wanted to stay in for very long!
I'm sure many other people here would echo these sentiments when I say that WW has been instrumental in helping me along, and saving my a$$ on occasions when I got stuck with a technical problem!
5 years and two jobs later I am being paid almost twice as much as in 2003, and am in a much nicer work environment. Have recently bought a house and acquired two very cute kittens :)
Long may it continue - recession and credit crunch notwithstanding!
Congrats helen, I passed 5 years last month too. I didn't notice. :)
now it's time to pass 1000 posts ;)
<edit>Just noticed I'm 5 years too this year</edit>
Congratulations and thanks for all your valuable contributions Helen! (I'm another who has celebrated five years this year - it must be a good vintage!)
>> good vintage
I much prefer the WebmasterWorld 2001
yeah well I think all the really cool people started in 2003.
2003? That's when all the newbies started jumping on board... ;)
Nice to have you around so long Helen and just for the record, I still feel like a newbie.
