I've had an entry 99% written for December 14, 2000 for half of forever. Today I deleted it. It's April. Whatever pithy descriptions I had of Christmas can't possibly still matter now. You're waiting for news. Any kind of news. Perhaps you sit desperately by the computer, waiting for some word of my life. There's still a couple of hundred hits a day on the site, probably representing the different people who are subscribed. Thanks for believing I'd come back one day.
So, why the delay?
Life, mostly. It's been busy, and not the good kind of busy for journalling. Do you really care about my intraoffice management woes or the piles of snow that's been dumped on us? Well, probably you do, but that's neither here nor there. Let's go through the basics, and some catching up and some bringing up to speed. We can work from there.
And, as it's been so blessedly long, I figured it was time to do a sitewide update of the web site. And so, at last, the journal, the In Nomine pages and all the rest are being collected into subdirectories of the main web site, not piddling little subsites. The main website itself is getting a much needed facelift, and the front page of the site is now the real front page, including of this journal.
Anyway -- the basics!
Any of the above you don't understand you can get out of the archives of the journal, available to the left, or in the navigation links
So, what's actually new with me, you ask?
That last bullet point makes me leery. Yes, I passed my third anniversary, but I went four months without posting a bloody thing, and only a few token posts in the three months before that. Really, since the accident this website's seen a dramatic downturn in material. Which is another good reason for this redesign, and the centralization of the website proper.
You see, it's time to make this site new again. To incorporate 21st Century concepts and technologies into it. To reinspire the whole. Part of that is to recognize the limits of time on my creative output, and adjust my site to accommodate that. If people come in through the front page, they can see each day what changes I've made to the site, whether it's here or somewhere else. What's more, if I have good openings for my creative work, I can showcase it and maybe draw a more diverse audience here. Besides, I have all this old poetry that needs a home....
