Out With the Old

Until last night this domain was home to a long-lived but sadly neglected wordpress blog. It was ugly, badly-organized, and needed a lot of work

. I didn’t want to add anything to it, and I didn’t want to fix it either. The prospect of trawling through hundreds of posts to work out which if any were worth keeping was so unappealing, in fact, that I’d left the blog untouched since 2014. Six whole years.

So I had a glass of wine, made a new site, and rather than do all that sifting and fixing broken links and deciding whether the tenth rant about seagulls was amusing enough to be worth migrating, I declared Blog Zero. We’re starting from scratch. Out with the old.

What’s the new? No idea. You’ll have to bear with me on that. Hopefully less than six years though. 😬

As an aside, shout out to this Hugo x Firebase tutorial without which this little experiment wouldn’t exist.
