After twelve months of blogging on the Google Blogger site, I felt it was time to migrate to something that gave me a bit more flexibility in how I presented my material. That was, in part, driven by the variety of things about which I find myself writing. Having the original blog simply stack subjects in the order they were written made for a bit of a mess. Though some found the random nature of that appealing.
I was also torn between the need to have one blog per general subject, and the desire to write about a variety of things. But the prospect of having a blog for each subject area is just too daunting for someone who does this on a VERY part-time basis. Politics, aircraft, travel, quirky things that catch my eye, creative writing subjects, friends, journal, family – all mixed up or all separate. Which was it to be?
I reworked the site in 2007 using a Brian Gardner design. But we are a perpetual work in progress so in 2021 the sire is rebuilt to reflect a wide range of writing activities, many of which have their origins in this blog.
