A fresh start for the ol’ dot-com

The years 2010 and 2011 were really good as far as this website is concerned. The years since, not so much. The last two, particularly not so much. Yesterday, I decided it was time for a fresh start and archived every single one of the 835 posts that existed on this blog.

You may be curious and wonder what will be different this time around — totally valid question, dear reader, and one for which I have no good answer. There are lots of things under the hood that I have wanted to play around with for a long time — WordPress-native content calendars, using Cloudinary to manage digital assets, hoping to find a desktop blogging app that was as nice as Blogo1. Stuff like that. I also finally feel like I’ve got some things to share for the first time in a long time, and shedding the bloat from previous fits-and-starts is refreshing.

Plus, I made that sweet post header. So that’s something.

So, who knows what’s going to happen here. You’ll just have to join me and see how this goes.

  1. Man, the way they just up and vanished back in mid-2018 was a perfect example of “don’t get too attached to fun new apps”
