Clearing The Deck

I have not managed to get started with a regular cadence of writing on this blog. My day job as a software laborer has been consuming a lot of my creative energy and I have become another Dark Matter Developer. There are also a number of other things, probably not worth writing about, that are weighing on my mind. I feel like I need to do a bit of “clearing the deck” before I can move forward. Though it would probably be good to get back into writing on this blog (and to write better stuff) I am having trouble making it a priority now. So as to not over-promise and under-deliver (it’s a problem I have, especially with software project estimates), I am hereby not promising any regularity or quality with regard to my posting here.

Hello (again)

I suppose this is a good time of year, with it being cold and gray and uninspiring outside, to spend most of a weekend working on a blog. By working on a blog I don’t mean writing content but rather the installation and configuration of WordPress and some exporting and importing to get content from an old blog. There are a couple posts dated prior to this one that I brought forward from my previous blog at (which is now back to being just a static bit of computer geek satire). I hope to get to posting here soon and not just working on the plumbing of the blog itself. There is, however, more plumbing to do and a few loose ends to tidy up over the next week or so.  I hate to use the tired phrase “under construction” (what web site is not still under construction?) but I suppose that applies.

(To answer my own parenthetical question:  A web site that only exists in the WayBack Machine.)
