Pulling it All Together

This blog is now stitched together from several previous blogs that I’ve kept during various times between 2006 and the present. Instead of fragments of my writing in different places, it finally felt right to bring it all into one place. While some of my pre-2006 blogging is lost to defunct sites, anchoring my history right here on my site was overdue. So while it might look a bit odd around here, with posts from a few years back, some gaps, and a variety of topics (Going through some older posts triggered mixed feelings, both positive and negative – but hey, I’ve grown!). The gaps in this blog were due to a few of life’s circumstances, health pauses, and due to writing privately as well as getting published in various places under my own byline and not. Yet, I’ve always wanted to create and keep this as a place for thoughts, hopes, musings, reviews, and stories I’d like to tell.

Here’s to tending the garden, a garden seeded and nourished through the years, but with newly turned-over soil.

Welcome 2010!

Happy New Year, and welcome to the overhauled and relaunched blog. There’s still some dust that needs to be settled, but that will come together soon. I had to delay for about a month since December was a productive month, and I planted some seeds that I anticipate will bring a nice harvest in 2010 to work with for me. fingers crossed, of course.

Just a couple of quick items of note:

I recently made my debut as a contributor to MMORPG.com with a look at recent developments in Final Fantasy XI.

Welcome to the New Digs!

I originally began my blog over at Vox, which remains a great service, but its inability to export posts and some technical difficulties I experienced over a long period of time made me consider changing bloging hosts and platforms for a while now.

Life intervened, as it often does, and I’ve been pretty busy for the past couple of months. Then, one night last week, I had a dream that I was migrating my old Vox blog over here to WordPress by hand (as is required of me, since Vox can’t export one’s blog). Only I would dream about migrating my blog (right?), but it was the reminder and kick in the butt that I’d needed, and so, here I am.

I will be slowly bringing everything over from Vox by hand, piece by piece, hence the existence of a tag on here called “from the archives”, which I will use for each old Vox post. In the meantime, I plan to spruce the place up and truly move in. Hopefully the welcome will be warm.
