I have kept some sort of a blog on and off for well over a decade now. During that time I have moved from hosting provider to hosting provider and from service to service. Always trying to export the old data to keep my old gibberish still around. I have found myself not posting anything lately because I never had “a lot” to say. I might have a fleeting thought, but not something that required some long form post. Those thoughts do take more than 140 characters so as a self proclaimed hater of “tweetstorms” I can’t put them on Twitter. That is where this site comes in. Even if I just have a simple thought, or a link to share I am going to put it right here. You might also find a few pictures, or some stupid thing I saw online. As someone who believes we should own our data, this site will pretty much become my Facebook feed. I will continue to share out the links to other sites, but the data will live here. Run by me, and owned by me.
I am unfollowing anyone doing this tweetstorm shit, and you should too. Put it on your blog, and tweet out a link assholes!
