I have blogged on-and-off since the late 90s when I first got Internet (hello, 10 hours a month!). I migrated around from LiveJournal, Advogato, my own site running Movable Type, and Tumblr. In college it was cathartic to write about my depression and frustrations with life. It was nice to connect with others in that way as well. As I connected with more people in person, my need for open journaling subsided. The rise of Facebook also helped me share things that I wanted my friends to see.
The past few years, though, I’ve started writing about bicycling on various sites. My most interesting articles have been for Biking in Dallas, where I have free reign to write about anything I want related to bicycling. I’ve enjoyed putting together photo stories of rides and adventures.
I have been wanting a place to call my own and establish a public (i.e. non-Facebook) presence again. As I’m looking into getting a real camera again, too, I thought this would be a good time to reboot my long-held domain. I’ll be keeping a current list of writings from elsewhere on my Writings page.
For now, I’m thinking about writing up a post about the 3 weeks I spent in Malaysia.
Hope you’ll stay tuned.
By the way, I’m enjoying using App.net over Twitter. I’ll likely dump Twitter soon; it’s always just irritated me. If you need an invite, let me know.
