I have blogged for years now. Since March 2005 over at Livejournal. Most of the first four years of those posts are entirely private now, and a great deal of the rest are filtered to specific groups of people, and private posts purely for the emptying of my own head in the middle of the night. I have posted there publically, for quite long periods of time, but for various reasons, I didn’t find it a useful forum for public blogging, or for interacting with bloggers using other platforms.
More recently, I more or less stopped blogging altogether. I still have things to say; posts bubbling around in my head; photographs I want to share, but Livejournal just didn’t feel like the right place to do that any more. My blogging needs have changed and I need to move on.
So I woke up this morning with a sudden decision that WordPress might be the way forward. Just jumped in and made a start. I’m hoping to connect with old friends and new. To continue sharing some of my life with you all and learn from you too.
I am sure as I find my way around WordPress it will all get a little easier and more intuitive. This does feel like a rather steep learning curve at the moment, but I like learning!
