Numbers.

One of my kids asked me yesterday how many sites I've built. Offhandedly I told her "500, maybe 1000? Not sure" and I wasn't sure. I'm still not, but I have a better idea now.

I built my first site as a "professional" developer in 2004 (nearly 18 years ago!?!). It was an ecommerce site for a small local bead shop, built on ZenCart. Since then I've created hundreds of sites, a handful of mobile apps, a couple of desktop applications, and even a few games.

I didn't keep records of each project or a running tally - I wish I had! From the notes I do still have and general recollecting, here is a rough break down of what I've built online. I've absolutely missed some things. There are a handful of sites I remember building for one reason or another, but cannot recall the CMS or platform.
