So, I’ve started a new weblog. One reason I did so is that I’m really tired of Blogger. It’s always been very unreliable. And as soon as I took the bait of switching to Blogger Beta, entirely new headaches emerged to eradicate the small improvements and the minor uptick in reliability of the new version.
I also came to the end of what I started doing at Verb-Ops, which was (I learned about six months into doing it) writing my autobiography. I basically told my story, interspersed with lots of real time stuff. Lots of shenanigans. A silly nom de plume. A great time, basically. But I’m all caught up.
I plan to continue having a great time in a somewhat different format. Certainly not on Blogger. I must say I like WordPress after less than a day of fooling around with it. I like having a blogroll, which, believe it or not, I could never figure out how to do on the template I was using at Verb-Ops. And I really like putting ol’ Johnny La Conkeroo up there in the header. I like the feel of the WordPress “environment.” So, here I wait for Cassowary.
My loyal (or recent) Verb-Ops readers will remember that “Waiting for Cassowary” came to me as a name for a painting I finished last month. I don’t know exactly what to say about what it means, but I believe it. It’s happening. Right now. I can feel it.
I think I’ll be writing more poetry.
So, I hope to pull you all over here (you’re here now, right?) and keep you and multiply you. But I also hope I’m happier here doing something for myself.
