My very first blog post ever was posted on July 24, 2004. I’m pretty sure only two readers ever saw it, and they were people I knew before I blogged. One I knew from an online forum who had a similar educational background, and one was a from real life with whom I’d lost touch (before Facebook connected me down to the last 4th cousin once removed).
I’ve had a variety of blogs since then, but none of them have stuck around long and the one I had here was lost in cyberspace and I can’t get it back. (I did back it up, but the backups were corrupt or something. In any case, they didn’t work to get everything up and running.)
This time I’ve jumped in, fought the overwhelm and started fresh. I still need to get the website free of all the “placeholder” links and images, but I’m just going to start blogging again regardless of the lack of perfection. It’s time.
