Just ’cause I’m here. And I’m real

Blogging platforms. I feel so behind.

I mean, I was on LiveJournal in 2002. I’ve been blogging pretty consistently since then, although I moved over to DreamWidth as my primary blogging platform. For reasons I can’t really explain, I’ve never loved Facebook (although maybe the fact that they won’t let me spell my name correctly has something to do with it). And while I’m okay with Google+, I do feel like it isn’t really designed for long-form blogging.

So I’ve embraced change, and I’m going to try my hand at the funky world of WordPress. And, okay, I admit that I’m not on the bleeding edge, here. But it’s a new world for me, anyway. We’ll see how it goes.

I’m also wondering about the different personas of me on the Intertubes. I mean, on my work blog, I usually only talk about programming and agile. On my personal blog, I talk about fannish stuff, and social politics. I sometimes say “fuck” a lot. But I seldom cross the streams. And I haven’t yet fully thought through what this blog is going to contain.

Ah well! It’s an adventure. And I’m inviting you along for the ride.
