Hi, and welcome to the inaugural post of my new site! However you found your way here, thanks for checking it out. Why The Wilderness? Mainly because I used that as the name of my last blog, but also because I just kind of like the implication that anything can happen here.
For those who know me, I’ve tried this a few times in the past without much success. What makes this one different? I don’t really know, except to say that if I keep trying enough times eventually I’ll get it right. Also, I think I have a few extra things in my favor this time:
- I now have my own domain name, as well as a dedicated host. This means much more control over what I want to do with the site.
- I’m not limiting myself here to one topic like I have in the past. Whatever I feel like writing about, that’s what you’ll see. That’s right, get ready for some tedious, uninteresting content at times. But at least it will be content.
- … I had something else here, but it’s escaped me. I’m sure I’ll remember later.
In short, it’s time to treat this site like a project at work, and that means deadlines. The plan is to update a minimum of three times a week. Whether that means a full-on essay or a video of a cat playing basketball, it will be something.
On top of this being a blog, I will be continually updating the site with other content as well. What kind of content? You’ll have to stick around and find out. Again, thanks for visiting, and remember to bookmark!
