As the prophets and scribes have warned, the blog is back with a brand new invention. Somethin’ grabs a hold of me tightly…
Er, sorry. I got a little side-tracked.
So I was ready for a change. I think we needed an infusion of new life in several ways, and this grand re-opening is the beginning of that (I hope). First, we need more activity around here. I’m working on that one. I also want to make the whole experience a little more interesting and worthwhile for everyone. I’m working on that too. The new name and shibboleth will serve as our north star in this effort. I’ll unpack them both eventually, but feel free to speculate and cogitate and ruminate in the meantime.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I also grew to dislike the aesthetic vibe of my blog. I’ll spare you the boring details of how it came to look that way and why it didn’t change for over a year, but there was little I could do about it in the blogger matrix. (Blogger was the host service for this stuff.) I’ll also spare you the boring details of why I didn’t do this sooner, but I’ve now officially traded in my blogger keys for the greener pastures of Typepad.
Rather than spin through a long list of the many ways in which Typepad is superior to blogger, I’ll just let you discover them for yourselves. Just know that I can do more and do it more easily. The look here is much cleaner, I have a lot more control of it, and it’s all much simpler than trying to get comfortable in my old digs. That said, I’m sure I’ll have something to complain about soon, so don’t go sending Typepad any charitable donations just yet.
Anyway, say your goodbyes to this stuff and change your bookmarks. This is where it will all go down from now on (or until I get restless again).
I’m still working through some minor issues, but I decided home anywhere was ready for public exploration. So look around and tell me what you think.
