Er, ahem… (tap, tap…) is this thing on? Hello world! Yes, it’s true. I have finally jumped on board the Blogging Bandwagon. As with many other things that have revolutionized the Web, I held back longer than most. I had no need for such trendy tools. No need for me to share a diary with the world. (Or whatever portion of it would pay any attention.) I do my web-building from scratch… with my bare hands! So, yes, I scoffed. Sure, I could do it myself. But I found, more and more, that I wasn’t. It was just too tedious. And the new tools out there were mature enough that I could make use of them within my site without compromising control over the look and feel. Because in the end, “blog” is just tech talk for an easy-to-update site. What really matters is that I can now add photos, videos, and updates with just a few mouse clicks. That means you can look for lots more on the site, and more often! I welcome your comments and feedback on the new site. Enjoy, and let me know what you think!
