Starting Anew

I remember way back in 2005 when I first started up my web page again, when I didn’t want to use a service such as WordPress or Blogger. Well honestly, I didn’t know anything about WordPress, I only looked into Blogger. Back then Blogger seemed to have a lack of customization, and I didn’t care for that. I wanted my page to be exactly how I wanted it, and that was that. So I dusted off my HTML/CSS skills and threw together a page. I kept that page going for over 2 years (as you can see from my archives). Well, from pure laziness, I had decided to look into WordPress, as I started reading the blog Average Joe and that was what he used. After toying with it last night (actually this morning in the wee hours) I decided that I liked it, and I started transferring over my archives. This was a tedious task in itself, as I had to manually cut/paste each entry, along with editing the timestamps for each. I made it through the 2005 archive by the time I had had enough. Today I finished transferring the archive, and threw together a brief “about me” page. I tweaked some of the layout options and this is the one I like for now, though I liked a few others and might change things around again in the future.

So here I am. My old web page has been deleted, as all of its content is now here. I will try to post here a little more regularly than I had been doing on my old page, as this is so much more efficient. While transferring over the archives, I noticed that as time went on I posted less and less per month. I mean at least I’m still doing it right? But I decided that I want to do it more. This is one of my original hobbies and I intend to keep it up.

There will be however, a slight format change. Previously I posted about my life in general and the bullshit contained within. I have posted about music/games/movies in the past, but usually just snippets within posts. Because of the categorization here, I intend to make posts more organized, in that I won’t throw all topics into one post. I also intend to start blogging about Everquest 2, not just “I played EQ today”, but rather full on posts about my opinions, experiences, etc with the game. I have a topic in mind to talk about, but I will save that for a later post.

 So this is my introductory post, sort of. I will be back later with more as I get time to write it up. So with that, I bid you adieu.
