OK: This is it.
Blahg has now moved permanently here, to WordPress.
After a year of just winging it intuitively (basically the way I begin any new mode of expression), I’ve been thinking over what blogging means to me. It’s opened me to a wider world, to new people and continued contact with old friends. For this deafened person, blogging has become an unexpectedly satisfying way to be connected…sort of a substitute for a corner pub, in an odd, time-delayed way, where I can hear effortlessly, relax, drop all pretensions, and just be myself.
I definitely want that to continue, but I need to experiment with a change in how it will keep working best for me.
WordPress allows selected individual posts to be password-protected. I intend to keep Blahg public for the most part; the new pub will still be open to anyone who walks in. But, every once in awhile, I will protect a post, and essentially gather with a group of friends in the back room.
If you would like to join me in the password-protected back room, you can do one of two things: Leave a comment after this post (only I will see your e-mail address), and I’ll contact you. Or, if you have one of my addresses, e-mail me and tell me who you are.
I hope you’ll continue to hang with me here at the new pub for the odd dram, a bit of conversation, a song, some dancing or the occasional game of darts.
