I open the lid, dust off the keyboard, and sit in the driver’s seat. I’ve been driving a lot of other blog traffic lately, but I don’t have the same history with them as I do this one, my blog from before the term “blog” existed. I miss it, and I need to spend time with it.
I put my username in the login screen, then my password, and the blog rumbles to life. It seems to be running just as well as when I last visited, despite my neglect. I need to update the version, turn comments back on, and get back in the habit of driving traffic. It’s key to getting in the mindset of actually writing, if I’m ever going to do it.
The look and feel needs a facelift, too. I need to get back to the format that the rest of the blog has, and then I need to add all the static content to the database so it truly becomes part of the real blog.
In due time … in due time. You can’t take a trip without making sure you have a course mapped out and the time and materials to get there. I’m gathering all of that right now, and hopefully I’ll get back to the daily updates I was doing several years ago.
