It's been a long time between drinks for those of us here at the powerlot.net. Very little blogging, web-paging, linking, foruming or any other sort of internetings have been done for well over a year.
Much has happened, people have moved, changed (inside and out), left jobs and schools, started new jobs and schools (sometimes more than once) and all sorts of other interesting things.
In the interests of a clean slate and a the chance to get things going again without any excuses for procrastination (well, any more than normal), I have decided to archive my old blog: Can You Spell Cacophony and replace it with this site. Actually, this site will be for my standard and boring ramblings about life, work, family and any other chips on my shoulder. I have already created another blog: Out The Bladesage Gate, which will be for my gaming, writing and wordbuilding exercises (and related nerdery), but it has taken a little while to get going. Watch this space.
In case you are wondering, "What do you want?" is a tilt towards my late father with whom I would always have a race each time we spoke on the phone to ask (as rudely as possible): "What do you want?". To which of course the correct response would have to be: "nothing from you"! Still miss you Dad, and all your stupid emails that started with FW:.
You might be looking at this terribly boring theme and wondering what I am doing, but there is method to my madness. It's plain (as per the name), it's simple and it has very few options. I have regularly said that one of my hobbies is "fiddling with my wordpress blog and very rarely writing anything for it" and that is what I am trying to deal with here. If I can leave off all the fancy options and pretty pictures and widgets and plugins, then I might actually get around to writing instead of fiddling... I'm not much of a writer really, but I'm a hell of a lot better at writing than I am at web developing. Let's leave it there shall we.
So thanks to anyone who made it to the end of this post. Read it here: My goal is to write at least one post a week (even if it's not much more than a couple of links) on either this site or on The Bladesage Gate every week. Eventually, I want that to be at one on each, but let's not get ahead of ourselves.
