Previous Entry

In January 2005 I recklessly launched a new blog, Heretic, Rebel, a Thing to Flout here at LiveJournal. Probably not the best choice in the world, but I didn’t know better. I have kept it up ever since. There have been some lean months here or there, but I have been amazingly faithful. Content has evolved. At first I thought I might become some kind of great commentator. But the blog-o-sphere was already crowded with smarter guys and gal. Sometimes it seemed fade back to just a bulletin board of meetings and activities I was involved in. I shamelessly inflicted poetry from time to time which almost no one ever read. In recent years I have run heavily to historical notes with an admixture of whatever the hell else I wanted to scribble about on a given day.

Despite its limitations—like most people now avoid it like the plague—LiveJournal was a functional platform. Recently, however it has become unreliable. Based in Russia for the past few years, their servers have come under attack for one reason or another occasionally interrupting service. I have been unable to post now for due to a severe Denial of Service Attack, which they do not seem to be able to deal with. That was the last straw.

I am moving my little pop stand and the far end of the cul-de-sac to Blogger. Look for Heretic, Rebel, a Thing to Flout I hope long time readers will find and follow. Beginning now I will post all entries there.  And I hope to find a way to transfer my extensive blog archives to that site. I’m told it can be done, but several hours of trying to figure it out have left me anxious and exhausted. Maybe someday.

I will leave the LiveJournal blog up, so that the archives will remain available.
