Hotmail New Account

My very first email account was a hotmail account. In the late 1990s, I decided I wanted to enter the technological age, so I asked my friends about how to open a hotmail new account. Of course, I did not realize how easy it would be, nor did I even know that it would be free. I remember the excitement I felt at starting an email account. The first email I sent went to my parents. I don’t really remember what it said, but I know I told them how I had opened a hotmail new account and how I was entering the digital age.

And though it was easy fifteen years ago, I think now it is even easier. All an interested party has to do is go to the hotmail website (click here). Then at the bottom of the page, one will see the following:

Don’t have a Microsoft Account? Sign up now.

The “Sign up now” is a hyperlink that takes interested parties to a registration page. From there, all one has to do to acquire a hotmail new account is follow the directions. Today, these are standard sign up directions: name, birth date, general bio information, and then create an email address and password. Most Americans fill this information in on a regular basis, so it should be pretty easy to set up a hotmail new account.

I must say that I still have my hotmail account although I now use gmail primarily. Hotmail is still where my first exposure to the world wide web’s communication capabilities started, so I will forever have my hotmail address. It was a perfect introduction for me.
