Since I, uh, “abstained” from posting for so long, I have a ton of photos I haven’t posted. So every so often, I’ll try to pick one out and put it up. There’s no rhyme or reason to which photos I’m posting, or the order — I’m just randomly choosing from the backlog.
Now that I have my blog set up for big pictures, it would be a shame to not take advantage of it. Since I’ve been so lax about blogging over the past couple of years, there are a ton of things that have happened without being covered. Here’s some of the fun you missed…
I’m sure most of you don’t really care about this, but the changes are visible enough that I thought I should say something. Also, I couldn’t come up with anything more interesting to write about to test this out…
Before I get into the boring stuff, I’ll warm you up with a picture of our new kitty Toby. One feature of my new blog setup is big pictures (sorry if you have a tiny monitor)!
Anyway… When I first started blogging (back when I was still refusing to use the word “blog,” and when most people had no idea what it meant), I cobbled together a really simple home-made blogging system. Eventually I moved onto another home-made setup, then to Movable Type, then I took a break from it all, then to MySpace (yeah, yeah) and then on to WordPress. I’ve been using WordPress for the last few years, and it’s been working ok. But it’s very complex and requires a lot of maintenance (if you don’t keep up with security fixes, you’re doomed to be hacked). So I decided to throw in the towel on that and try something different. I’ve come full-circle, and have again written my own blog software.
Ok, so I guess it’s been a while since I’ve posted here, huh? Every time I’ve thought about it, I’ve been daunted by all the things that have happened that I’d need to catch you all up on. Tonight, I’m refusing to be daunted. Things happened, I failed to blog about them, so be it. There. Done.
I’ll try to post again before another 18 months have elapsed.
