Falling into despair won’t help anyone, though. I mean, you can curse the darkness or you can light a candle. I’m getting a fucking welding torch. Okay?James Carville
Too many of us are not living our dreams because we are living our fears.
So it’s February 4, 2020, a new year and a new decade (maybe, anyway) is underway, and I feel like it might be time to get back to something I loved the decade before the last one (the Lost Decade for me), which was blogging.
Blogging. I want it back in my life.
And the tools are so much better now, even venerable WordPress.
I considered and dabbled with other platforms, especially the really fast static generators like Hugo. But if I’m honest with myself, I don’t really like writing markdown, especially on mobile. And, worse, I’m constantly shifting devices around so it would be quite a bit of work to fuss around with the synchronization, git, github, netflify, etc.
Ok, ok, if I’m even more honest with myself, it is a ton of fun to play around with that stuff–too much fun. (I’m a developer at heart.) If I start futzing around with tooling, I’ll get distracted and never publish anything.
And besides, WordPress has served me well with tens of thousands of visitors over the past decade, so for now I’m going to stick with it.
Hope you’ll tune in during the next decade. Think we can have a great one together.
