What was this website like in the beginning?

What was BP like in it's early years?  From what I can tell from the podcasts, it was just a forum, but was that all it had?  Was there no marketplace, tools, webinars, podcasts, books, or member blogs?  Was there just a single blog that Josh Dorkin wrote here and there?

Hey @Clayton Rokosh - In case you didn't have a chance to catch it, we talk a lot about your question on Show 100 of the BiggerPockets Podcast.  That said, the site started with a forum and a few resources -- some of which live on today at http://www.biggerpockets.com/rei . . . we transitioned to become more of a social network a few years later by adding profiles, member blogs and some other features.  On the blog, I started posting content about 10 years ago and after a few years, realized we needed others who were in the weeds to write the content. I hope that helps . . .
