I want to thank each and every one of you who have been a part of the Land Hermit Crab Owners Society and The Crabstreet Journal over the past 15+ years! We wouldn’t be what we are today without all of the members over the years sharing, contributing and HELPING each other learn and grown. Who knew what began as a Yahoo! group back in 1999 would still be going strong nearly two decades later!!
Happy Birthday to a website and community that means a lot to me. I invisioned a community-based collaborative website over 15 years ago today and on my birthday I purchased the domain and hosting to make it happen.
I was living in Tasmania, Australia at the time and had just graduated from University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Education where I learned how to make collaborative group work projects and had taught myself how to make websites.
The Land Hermit Crab Society on hermies Yahoo!Group had over 1000 members and we wanted to pool our knowledge into a resource that had quality information and where people could share about their hermit crabs.
So many wonderful crabbers have contributed articles, calendar crabs, crabby tales, crabitat of the month entries, pet store reports, pet store reports, plus more.
Thank you to all contributors and all readers and people who share links on social media. The Crab Street Journal magazine would not be what it is today without you xxx
