Why this new blog?


I’m sure loads of people are asking why…why change my blogging engine.  Well, first a bit of history…when I started blogging back in 2005 (my first post was 22 Feb 2005), I used Blosxom.  I changed domains a bit later on but still used Blosxom.  After that, I switched to PHPNuke for a bit.  Next,  switched to Joomla.  I stayed with them up till I switched to Known.  Why switch?  Well….

Back when I started blogging, there was no such thing as facebook, twitter, etc… so I had to do my own thing.  I resisted joining facebook for a while, and just joined twitter a few years ago.  I stopped writing here in favour of those platforms just because that’s where my friends were.  Well, Known allows me to, hopefully, write stuff here, publish it onto those platforms, and collect responses back here.  So, I get all the benefits of those platforms with the added benefit of me really owning my content here.

We’ll see how it works.  Only time will tell….
