Moving blog platforms for the 37th time

Loads of silly people change their blogging platform in the middle of a 30 day blog challenge.

“The publishing experience was getting in the way!”

“I’m a better writer on {new platform}!”

Actually, I don’t know if there are loads of people like that. I know of just one, and that’s me.

At 2am a few nights ago, I abandoned Tumblr, manually copied over some recent posts (“see, that article looks better already!“), and wrote my longest post in the past month. Great.

On the other hand, I haven’t gotten around to fixing the domain re-directs because I installed WordPress in the wrong folder… so I have similar blogs all over the place, none of which anyone is reading. It’s like being naked on the street but it’s okay because there’s no one around and it’s not cold and… wait, that’ not okay.

I’ll prioritize writing today and fix the domain over the weekend. It’s a promise.

At the end of the day, Wordpress has its issues as a CMS but for updating a straight-forward personal blog, it can’t be beat.

This photo was taken in Berlin on December 7th, 2011. It’s Borofsky’s Molecule Man on the river Spree, and I stumbled upon it while scouting the city for street art. There’s a much smaller one in Tokyo right outside Opera City, a fantastic complex of cultural institutions but I hadn’t known it was a series of works. The sheer size and audacious location of these “Men” absolutely caught my fancy.
