10 Things People In Arizona Did Before The Internet Took Over Our Lives

I remember back in 1998 when my family first connected to the Internet. Shortly after my parents signed up with AOL, I discovered email, instant messaging and fan fiction. Oh, yeah, and there was that fun dial-up intro song we all grew to love.

Since the Internet required a phone connection back then, any time spent online was severely limited in my household. I suspect most people didn’t spend their lives connected to their computers as people seem to be with their smartphones today. Let’s take a step back and remember some of the things we used to do far more frequently in those pre-Internet days.

How many of these things do you still happen to do? I’d like to hear your thoughts in the comments section below!
