Here I am with a new website… again.

It’s been a while since I’ve done much writing for the web, and even longer since I wrote anything of a personal nature. I think because I’d not made a clear distinction between the personal and work-related on my other sites, I got a little crossed up, and (probably incorrectly) came to the conclusion that my personal writing didn’t belong on my site: it had become a place for work-related stuff only. Odd, since my main motivation in starting to write online in the first place was personal, and my writing reflected that.

So this is a new place for me to write, one not afflicted with any motivational conflicts. It’s a place for me to write personal stuff, not work stuff, and will remain so. The other site will remain what it had become — a place for work-related stuff.

I may over time move (or duplicate) some of my favorite past, personal things here, or I may link to it from here, or I may do neither. One of the nice things about having a personal space is that I don’t have to worry about it looking professional. Hopefully that will make me feel more free to express myself, which is what I got into the Web for in the first place.

That’s all for now. I’ll leave you with a link to the lyrics that my tagline came from: Elephant Talk by King Crimson. “Talk talk talk, it’s only talk”
