Boy do these take me back! I remember visiting BH every once in a while during middle school (06-08) to see what Britney was up to, but I got most of my updates from X17 :eheeek: It wasn’t until the Femme Fatale era that I began lurking more frequently. That layout from 2012 brings back vivid memories for me :gaspney: I’m glad I finally gave in and made an account. It’s much more enjoyable actually interacting with the community than it is watching from the shadows. :jumpney:Congratulations @JordanMiller and Happy Anniversary BreatheHeavy! :pumped:

Super bummed I can't seem to find the layout I used when we launched in June 2004. It was called 7 Deadly Sins. I used 7 photos from Britney's Casual Fridays photoshoot - the one of her in the tie from the calendar. :katycry:

You may have launched it in June, but the Internet Archive has record up until March 2004*.

Here is the version prior to the launch.


And just after the launch here.

Love this ad:


This disclaimer is gold: "I am not Britney Spears" :haha:

I am NOT Britney Spears, nor am I affiliated with her in any way. This simply is a fan-site for and about Britney Spears. If you find anything offensive, please X out now. I am not responsible for minors under the age of 13.

And @JordanMiller's email address back then: GymnastDude182@aol.com :orly:


*You gotta love the first chatbox exchange:

I don't recall the first but the second onwards are all still very fresh - always loved the **** in training one; I recall messaging you about it, I think about how you did some effects as I was trying to learn Photoshop back then and Forum signatures of your faves were the 'in' thing to have, I used to make them for ppl on other forums (miss that time of the internet).

I think I actually stumbled upon BH through a Limewire download of a Brit remix - I'm almost certain I saw BH in a file name or description and it led me here... been here since, but gave up Exhale long ago.

Checked in daily throughout the Chaotic years as I define them. I remember the adrenaline getting home to get online but also the anxiety of what to expect from the latest headlines, especially with a 16hr time difference to LA. The site has changed dramatically since then (I hated almost every change along the way but that's human nature to most people and I got used to them eventually) but good for you for sticking with it and persevering through some of the **** thrown at you from the fandom. BH is actually the only site from the early 00s internet days that I've stuck with after the many cosmetic/content changes, so :mimiclap: (even if those annoying af Oops error pages nearly made me walk away).

(Also saw your lowkey mention of that JT blog you had. Thank gosh that ended - pity that poseur's career didn't end as quick as that blog :chrissy:)

Congratulations Jordan, for you and for the people who have worked during these 16 years on this website, it has not only been important to read, comment, criticize, get excited and show our love to the person who unites us worldwide, but also to have a moment of evasion from our routine lives and distract ourselves and be for a moment in a bubble. Thank you for your effort and work and I sincerely hope that at least another 16 years will come.
