3 years on today, tens of thousands of website views later and many more explores on, from when we set up the website in 2011! July 17th 2011 was when we set up this blog, and when we were biking around Two Tree Island, we never would have thought how iconic that day would be. A nationally recognised community archive was founded, a friendship was strengthened further more and my spelling and grammar was corrected for the next 3 years by Liam! 😉
Above are a few photos from the first few albums on our Facebook page. As today marks 3 years, we have looked back at our journey and have answered some questions to give you even more of an insight into Beyond the Point, including answering the question that we’re asked the most – How did BTP start? Below is a feature length documentary that we have produced for our third birthday special. With 7 hours editing, 6 hours rending and even longer uploading to Beyond the Point TV, we hope you enjoy it. We show some old clips to remind you of us three years ago (something we don’t mind forgetting) as well as ourselves talking about how we set up the site, what the ‘BTP room is’ and also answering the questions that you’ve asked us on Facebook/Twitter. It’s been strange looking back at some of the visits that we don’t remember quite as well and even more strange to see them in videos!
Thinking back that today was actually the day we set up this site 3 years ago (if that makes sense!) is quite surreal, I can remember setting up the site with our first page/post being the about us one. We’ve met many great people and have also had the chance to experience many things that we wouldn’t have normally so we would like to thank everyone for supporting us, and we look forward to the years to come.
