Blog Gaps and Consolidation

I've blogged on a number of platforms since around 2002. First it was LiveJournal and then I blogged on Windows Live Spaces for a number of years. Finally I ended up blogging on msdn.microsoft.com.

In all the time I've been blogging, much of it has been for professional reasons. Most of my blog posts from 2003-2005 ended up as a headlines and stories on various MSDN Developer Center properties at Microsoft. I've tried on and off to either balance personal blogging with professional blogging through tags and through experimenting with different platforms.  This blog was one of those experiments and I brought it back to life recently when I decided to start posting about some of the writing I've been doing.

So just for the record, you can find a lot of my old stuff on the following sites:


Sadly, Windows Live Spaces was shut down a few years ago. (I loved publishing there.) I was able to move most of my posts to the WordPress blog, but some of it is a real mess and all the spam comments from Spaces were imported along with the posts. Most of it is searchable on Google, but it's not pretty.

I had also set up a motorcycle blog recently. I'm going to move the posts to this blog and consolidate here. I need to do some more motorcycle blogging. It gives me an excuse to ride.

I currently post to Facebook multiple times a day and I'm still on Twitter.

I'm not sure how much blogging I'm going to do in the future, but it's nice to have a place to put longer posts.
