Though it's far from polished, I finally got my Standard Notes blog up and running. Eventually I'll have it looking better. And I do intend to keep blogging at, but I envision my and my Standard Notes blogs developing differently from each other. Both are linked in my Fostodon profile, BTW.

Though I've been a happy WordPress user for many years, recent wonkiness at my personal website has me remembering how peaceful things were when I used a hand-coded, static site.

Out of consideration for the sensibilities of the readers of my different blogs, I publish them separately from each other. For my own convenience, I keep one central location where they can all be seen. Of course, everyone can follow that central location via RSS, but I doubt if anyone does that.
