So, funny story behind this new website: Back when I was thinking about starting a blog, I ended up on WordPress.org by accident. The words server and hosting were more than a little prevalent on those pages, so I fled back to Blogger, stupidly unaware of the dot-com version that I needed to be looking at.
But, after seven or so months of trying to find ways to make my Blogger blog look like a WordPress blog, I’ve made the switch. It’s been real, Blogger, but this feels like a step up.
Which I guess is what this is about. Paying for a domain name, switching to the slightly-more-professional-looking WordPress — it’s my way of taking myself a little more seriously. Not that I didn’t take myself seriously before, but there’s a difference between taking oneself seriously and publicly taking oneself seriously.
Also, WordPress allows real em dashes. That little formatting benefit cannot be overstated.
In all seriousness, I’m weirdly excited. I’m excited about the new website, the new year, the books I’m planning to read, the exercising I’m seriously going to do, the queries I’m going to send, the books I’m going to write. It’s a weird feeling, but a good one.
And, since this post is really without substance, here’s some music to make up for it:
