Fairwell, WordPress

After a long and hot-and-cold relationship with this blog, I’m officially laying it to rest. After exploring  options, I’ve decided the platform more suited to my style is Tumblr, on which you can find me at Colour Receptor, where I’ll be doing things much as I did here, only in a more freestyle form.

I hope to see you there, whomever may still be following this thing.

Adieu.

Not Dead, Just Really Quiet

They’re kind of amazing, the quick transitions that so often occur in life. One minute, it seems, after weathering a familiar grind for so long nothing is ever going to change, only to have everything flipped on its head in what feels like a blink of an eye. My reviving this blog was an attempt to break from a rather monotonous period, and not too long after that idea a series of much larger changes and activities occurred. Naturally, that meant this  project quickly got pushed to the back burner.

I know, I know, I’m not saying anything new; in fact, there are probably more posts on here about things in the works and how I need to post more frequently, many of which are promises shortly broken. (And a huge thanks to all those who have so kindly illustrated that point on several occasions. I’m looking at you, Cow Bay gang—I believe the invitation was to a friendly night at the cabin, and not a personal roasting. But I digress…)

Know this: The Battle of the Blog is not ended. (That wasn’t cheesy at all, right?) It’s just on Economy Mode for the time being.

What goes around…

It feels like it’s been a month since I last posted on here, and not a week and two days, given all the activities of late. I was going to get at least one Sunday post up since having missed last Wednesday, but I was too busy traversing rapids on a tube and saving lives. (That’s not a complete exaggeration—only a considerable one.) Anyways, there are some pretty major developments that have kept me from attending to my often neglected blog; I wasn’t simply turning the music up to drown out its whimpers. Continue reading

Goodbye, Reader

So, Google killed Reader this past Monday. [Pauses for a moment of silence.] It being Canada Day for us Canuckleheads, I was busy not on the internet and completely spaced on the event, leaving me without my usual internet feed over the past few days. Thanks Google.

I’ve managed to salvage a good portion of my subscriptions and migrate to Feedly, so this should be the only hiccup. It is, however, a bit of a blessing in disguise as I’ve got a bunch of freelance work to do—at least the time will be put to good use. (No Google, that’s not a cue for you to pat yourself on the back. I’m still mad. Very mad. And upset.)

Coming Sunday…

I hate to blog and run for the third time in a row, but it’s overtime between Pittsburgh and Boston and I’ve got a whole lot of internet to catch up on since I’ve barely touched a computer in the past week. (Not exactly the sort of break I was looking for, being crippled on the couch, but it’s always nice to unplug every now and then.) I’ll have a nice, big post of interesting stuff ready for Sunday and regular business will commence from there.

Anyways, as I said—hockey. Go team.

Disappearing Acts

disappearing-acts

Ugh, blogs. One need not look to far to see I’ve clearly had a love-hate relationship with blogging. Don’t get me wrong, I adore it as a social and informative platform, but I’ve always struggled with how I contribute to the greater discourse; I don’t want to produce an online diary, leading me to try my hand at one or two more content-specific blogs, but my disparate interests and lack of patience for managing my online presence have always led me back to one central place. So, this blog has existed with some sustained activity and several periods of silence as my energy waxed and waned.  Continue reading
