I'm partly doing this to practise moving pictures around using HTML, since my defection to Wordpress probably isn't going to happen. I don't really want to put everyone to the trouble, especially the few friends and family in the incarnate* world who are very happily not especially internet savvy or just not very interested but who do sometimes take the trouble to come here, especially if something's going on. And there's the whole business of blogging ID and creating a links trail to get people there, and others having to change my address on their blogrolls, and getting into and remembering new procedures. None of which is beyond my powers to cope with really, but I'm just too shiftless and anodyne to want or need to reinvent myself anyway.
I did actually open a Wordpress blog just to see how to go about it, which I might in time use for photos and/or a Three Beautiful Things blog. I've always been drawn to the 3BT idea, but also like the untethered nature of an all-purpose, one-stop-shop general blog like this one, and perhaps yet another iron in the fire would be overkill; I still try to do my 30 word walks, there's Questions which we're thoroughly enjoying (or I am anyway!) batting back and forth like an existential shuttlecock for the foreseeable, and I don't keep up with my Flickr photos as well as I should. I often feel a bit put off when I see people have a large number of things on the go like that. And sometimes I even like to read a book or watch a film or have a conversation...
Lovely Sister's coming to visit tomorrow, so I'll probably be a bit scarce for a week or so, but the new car is longing to meet her, so we'll probably get out and about a bit and take some pictures. I was in the almost unprecedentedly happy state on Sunday of having scarcely a feed in bold on my list, and totally bog-eyed as a consequence, but it won't last.
Be seeing you.
* I thought I'd try that word rather than the unsatisfactory 'real' or rather horrible 'meat', which I've never been able to use comfortably, though something in its flesh/spirit dualist dichotomy does appeal to my inner Manichean... Neither can I bring myself to use IRL, any more than I can do LOL, though I do occasionally succumb to BTW, and I don't mind if anyone else does. What about you? (I don't do that very often either, though some of the very best of bloggers do; I'm always afraid it will make me look like a sad and desperate comments junky, though when others do it it's fine and I appreciate their interest...)
