New beginnings

A new home for my blog

I have been blogging for ages, my first blog being on LiveJournal back in the days it was not only the popular option, but the only option. After LiveJournal, I moved to Tumblr, then Wordpress, Medium, then back to a more basic blogging platform with GitHub Pages. However, I've never really blogged consistently, even though I have set that as a goal for myself every year (and failed every single time).

So many things have happened in my life since I last blogged, that I would need to write a separate post just for that, and I might be doing it, but right now I am taking advantage of my newly found stability (well, “kind of” stability, since I am currently without a home of my own), to pick up blogging again, and really make it a habit this time.

In addition to returning to writing, I have decided to move away from GitHub Pages and start writing on write.as instead, for several reasons:

There currently is no way of importing posts from Jekyll to write.as, so I will have to do it manually. In the meanwhile, my old blog can be found here.

I still have to tidy up things a little bit in here (footer links, an “about me” page, some CSS decorations), but in the meanwhile this is my first piece of content, hoping that many more will come.
