I’m getting fed up with this.  Every so often I come and have a look at my site to make sure it’s still there and hasn’t been hacked again, and I see the same old front page, with the same post that’s been sat there for 160 days.  I think it’s made worse by the fact that, essentially, it’s a post stating that the previous post was a load of rubbish.

Oh well.  I’m here again now, and feeling like I should be doing more.

The first step is quite obvious; I need to start posting again.  Blogs are being squeezed out thanks to the likes of Facebook and Twitter.  140 characters is, apparently, enough room to get most ideas across, so what’s the point of writing out a whole blog?  Well, for me, it’s about writing.  I like writing – I like getting points across and I like the idea of expanding on an idea and bringing it to a conclusion.  I like the idea, but I’m not very practised at actually doing it.

That’s where this old blog comes in.

I have a few ideas for things I’d like to write about.  I’m not sure how many of them will actually be of any interest to anyone, but I think – and hope – that the act of writing them and publishing them here will both inspire me and lend them some kind of importance.  It’s easy to dismiss things as ‘good enough’ when no-one is going to read what you write.

So, if I’ve popped into your RSS reader for the first time in the best part of 5 and a half months, or you do actually visit the actual site once in a while (and laugh at the rubbish post that’s greeted you for all that time), stay tuned.  There should be an actual, content-laden update soon.  I just need to reach a few conclusions for my half-cocked ideas, and convince myself that they’re ideas worth sharing…
