Austin Nichols fan was originally started as an msn group named Unofficially Austin in June 2004. Unofficially Austin was the first MSN group for Austin and I believe the first Austin Nichols fan sites on the web or one of the first. (I never found another one)
I decided to move Unofficially Austin to a new server that was more html based. Someone told me about freespaces.com and It seemed useful, so I moved it there.
As well as moving the site there, I also decided to change the site’s name from Unofficially Ausitn to Austin Nichols Fan, which I thought better suit the website.
Austin Nichols Fan was originally started on November 17, 2004.
In early 2008, the server crashed and I lost everything. So the site was down for a few months. I moved the website to a yahoo hosting plan in May. The site has two domain names austinnicholsfan.com and austinnicholsfan.net.
Since then, I have had less time to dedicate to ANF due to college. I have decided to try using Tumblr as a way to keep fans updated with Austin’s career but also be less time consuming. Hopefully this will be a successful venture
