So, about a year ago, I bought a domain and installed WordPress on it and then I couldn't really get the damn thing to work and I was too busy to really figure it out, so it just sat there. Well, the other day, feeling motivated about not wanting to waste the registration costs and whatnot, I finally put my big girl pants on and emailed some tech support folks with what was, I'm sure, their 500th "dur, how dis wurk?" question of the day. A few simple clicks and I now have a functioning website.
Here's the thing. I'm planning on making that location my main blog from now on. I'm never going to delete this LJ, as it has most of my life over the past 5.5 years on it. And I don't think I'll ever get out of the habit of checking my friends page. I have too much emotionally invested in all of your lives to just stop, so I'm not going to.
I'm fully aware that I'm sort of leaving something behind here, the close sense of community and whatnot, and believe me when I say that I'm not taking this move lightly. As dorky as it is, I feel very sad about heading out on my own, especially because I know that it's very likely that a lot of you who regularly read this probably won't follow me there, and that's fine.
But I hope you will come visit me. I'm planning on setting up a feed that you can add to your friends list.
In the meantime, you can find me here. There's not much to see just yet, but give me time.
