The last time I stood in this spot [metaphorically speaking] was 2008 — 6 years and 11 months ago, when I unpacked a brand new CMS and seeded it with some recycled content from the blog before that one. This is actually my fourth blog platform (or fifth, depending on what we’re counting) and I started writing for the web way back in January 2004.
What I’m doing this time is a little different, though, because I’m not just abandoning the old platform and rebuilding fresh somewhere new. I’m relaunching the site, starting from scratch but keeping at least a few things the same — most noticeably, the website URL.
All the old content is still here (tucked away) but as you can easily tell, just looking around, I’m giving myself a blank slate to write in and blanket permission to start over.
I don’t know what my new topic is; if you read the new about page, there is no blog topic. I have a rough idea of what comes next but I don’t want to lock myself in, or jinx anything by promising too much.
So anyway, welcome — or welcome back — and as always, Thank You For Reading.
