Regular readers will remember my ill-fated WordPress blog from a few months back and what a mysterious end it met; one day there, the next gone. See, what happened was this: I almost lost my job from blogging. I panicked, accidentally deleted the blog and lost six months of posts. Luckily, I kept my job.
But for six weeks I was demoralized. One of my best-loved hobbies was gone and I felt like I was missing something, something I had, over the previous three years come to really enjoy. It relieved stress, kept me in touch with the world and other like minded and not so like-minded individuals. It allowed me to keep touch with friends in far away places (hay Kevin! Hay Jenny!). And generally made feel like I was part of a larger world, one I took active part in rather than just watched unfold on TV or news sites.
so, after six weeks of pulling out my hair, I went back online, starting up with my old Blogger site. I still had the archives from the previous two and half years and it was something.
Well, as you can see, I quickly became constrained by Blogspot (again) and decided to recreate the old-new blog. This time, itâ€™s even better, as Iâ€™ve been able to inport my archives form the old site, so no more goofs, no more lost posts. Itâ€™s all here. All three years of it (minus some change).
So, just in time for my third anniversary online, her eit is: my new home. Blogging has been better and weirder than I ever thought it could be and itâ€™s only going to get better from here. weâ€™ve got an election coming up, a war to stop and anothe rpossible war to prevent. I have a novel to finish and books to read and movies to see. And I canâ€™t wait to tell you all about every single thing that pops in my head.
And I promise, no more moving.
