If you’ve been here before, you’re probably wondering what happened to the last 11 years of posts. Well, I made them private – all 737 of them, with only the post from yesterday remaining. The old posts still exist, but I wanted a fresh start to my blog, so here we are. I will, however, be going back and selectively approving some posts that I want to stick around – mostly tech reviews and stuff like that.
I have been neglecting my blog for a while now (this one, at least. My writing blog has been quite active). Realistically, I don’t ever expect myself to be as active on this site as I used to be, thanks to Twitter, but I don’t really like seeing these huge gaps in time between posts. I’d like to try to blog at least once a week, but I think once every couple of weeks is more realistic, especially with other projects I’ve got going on.
What projects? Well, a while back I decided that I wanted to take writing more seriously, so besides actually writing stories, I’m working on turning philipdistefano.com into my author portal, rather than having it just redirect here. I recently finished writing a novel (it’s a shorter one, just barely over 52,000 words pre-edit), which I’m in the process of editing, so I plan on having the site ready for whenever I get that published. Last time I published something, I made some mistakes that are rather apparent to me now (yay hindsight), so this time, I’d like to do it correctly and see how it goes in comparison.
Since my last post here, I’ve acquired quite a few new gadgets that I’d really like to talk about. My friends and I were doing a tech podcast, which was my outlet for that sort of thing, but that project died, so I guess it’s back to writing about it here.
Also, McElroy brothers references incoming. That is all.
