The blog you see in front of you is not new. It actually started in 2001.
My blog began way back in January of 2001 with this exciting entry. It lived on my domain, updated and published with Blogger for over nine years.
Until one day, in 2010, Blogger (who had since been bought out by Google) decided they were no longer going to support FTP updates. They wanted me to move my journal from my own domain that I paid for and controlled, onto their servers where I had no control over what they did with my files. Yah, right!
And so I moved my blog over to a WordPress blog. But moving nine years of files and configuring them twice in order to have them in a format which could be imported into WordPress just wasn’t worth it. After all, the files are safe on my domain, so I might as well just start this blog fresh.
This is a long-winded way of saying this blog is not new. And that all nine years of archives are still available for reading and for posterity.
