It has been about two years since the last time that I posted to my WordPress blog. I spent a few minutes today updating to the latest version of WP and considering why I even have a “blog”. I do think that I started this 7 years ago for some good reasons, though I’ve never posted anything all that important very frequently. Back in 2005 I wasn’t on Facebook or Twitter and it seemed like a great way to share things that meant something to me and maintaining a personal web page was starting to fall out of style. Since starting on LiveJournal I’ve migrated to a self-hosted WordPress instance and shared a lot to MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, and a pile of other social networking sites to do pretty much the same thing. Through all that time on other social sites, having a self-hosted still seems like the most permanent way to keep a shared log of life events.. so I’ll keep the blog for now, maybe even make an effort to post more frequently.
I’m trying the WordPress plugin “leenk.me” to post links to my WP posts on Facebook and Twitter. Depending on the insignificance of my posts here, this may be bad etiquette… sorry in advance!
