A New Beginning

Growth.

Upward mobility.

Change.

Life is an arc. It starts, it rises, and eventually it descends. As you progress along the arc, you reach milestones. And when you reach these milestones, you have to evaluate what you’ve accomplished.

More importantly, you have to decide what must be done in order to continue moving forward along the arc.

What the heck am I babbling about?

Simple. This is a long-winded way of saying that Scatterthought has reached a milestone, and in order to move forward, I have to let the site grow beyond its current limitations.

For four-and-a-half years, I’ve recorded my thoughts via Microsoft FrontPage and straight-up HTML coding. For a good portion of that time, better technologies have existed for maintaining weblogs, but I’ve resisted. I’ve liked having my own way of doing things, as basic as it is. Moreover, I like that I’ve been doing it this way for four-and-a-half years.

We’re not gonna make it to five.

Starting today, I’m implementing blogging software made available on my new Web server. There are a few systems, so I might test out a few before settling on one. As a result, you’re just getting the basic graphics for the moment, while I figure out how this stuff works.

So tell me what you think. You can e-mail me…or better yet, post a comment! That is, after all, one of the main reasons that I’m switching over.

This should be interesting.
