Ahoy, loyal (albeit dwindling) blog readers! As you have no doubt realized, I don’t get around to updating this blog much. Especially this last year. 2008 counts under 30 posts. In past years, well, I won’t even go back and attempt to count.
It’s the usual reasons, of course. Less free time. Not single. Can’t blog at work. Plus new reasons – the rise of a gazillion new sites that provide nearly everything that blogs used to provide – Flickr, Facebook, Last.fm… Of course, what’s missing in the new social networking sites is the all-in-one, focused, highly personal web space that you can create in a stand-alone blog. But only if you update it, right?
Which is all to say that Mirandala Dot Org will be going on semi-hiatus for the indefinite future. I’ve moved it from its high-maintenance, super-customizable installation to a WordPress-for-dummies installation (blog.mirandala.org) – but you shouldn’t see much difference on the front end. I may even post and update it from time to time. I just won’t feel bad if I don’t.
Don’t worry – I’ll be keeping the mirandala.org domain name and I’ll inevitably use the web space for various projects along the way. So, this is not goodbye – it’s see ya. I’ve been blogging in one form or another since 1997 (Old schoolers out there – anyone remember Miranda’s Web Cafe on AOL hometown? Or the old Movable Type blog?). I hope you’ll swing by here from time to time to see what’s happening. In the meantime, there are 6 years of archived posts over on the left if you want to walk down Memory Lane.
p.s. In light of the new, hands-off style of the blog, comments will be moderated before they appear.
