Yes it's been a ridiculously long absence hasn't it?- over two years since my last post! Well, I'm back with the intention of writing semi-regular posts. Not only is there a lot to catch-up on, there's also some major changes happening in my life.
What happened? I upgraded my previous blogging platform and it got into a technical error (locking) which I hoped a subsequent release would solve but it never did. So it just kind of rotted for a long while and I never felt the need to write much. And of course with facebook and twitter, blogging has gone by the wayside to some degree.
So I've now migrated my blog over to Blogger and it all seems to be working. What I like about blogging is that it does provide a diary of events and it offers a way to meet complete strangers. Facebook is great for staying in touch with friends and family and sharing pictures. Twitter is interesting but I'm not really into it. Seems to be a lot of noise and 140 characters is so limiting. I just use it as a way of sharing and remembering web links.
So now I'm back to blogging.
