No, this isn’t the threequel to the Danny Boyle/Alex Garland classic we have been waiting 17 years for (but that is finally coming); this is much more interesting. It is my return to blogging after more than seven and a half years. I don’t know why; it just felt like time.

I made the call to start entirely from scratch. All the old content has been shuffled away onto a sub-domain for “historical” purposes. The past is the past.

Where previous iterations of this blog have been tech/coding-skewed, I want to avoid that being the case this time. Or at least attempt to.

That doesn’t mean I won’t write on that subject matter; it just won’t be the focus. Honestly, I have no idea what that overall “focus” will be — if you have suggestions, let me know.

To combat some of the reasons I stopped blogging — or at least blogged less often as time went on — I’m trying to keep the following things in mind so that I hit ‘publish’ more frequently and less stuff dies of starvation in my drafts folder.

Frequency doesn’t matter. I’d love to have enough to say that daily blogging was warranted, but that’s very unlikely. We’ll likely get to June, and I’ll have only written three pieces.

Audience doesn’t matter. I’ve accepted that some of my interests are niche and that the headcount of people who will ever read any of this is small, and that’s fine.

Length doesn’t matter. It could be a couple of hundred words, or perhaps I’ll dive too deep with a five thousand-word tome. There is also a strong chance that I get mid-way through a piece, lose my flow, and it all ends abruptly.
