Changes afoot

Blogger, which hosts this site, is beta testing a new interface that gives me, the blogger, more options for my blog. Eventually, all Blogger blogs will move over to this new interface, but I couldn't wait. I really, really, really wanted the option to index by subject NOW.

So, I did it the hard way. I went to and created a new blog, then I manually imported all my old posts over. I modified the template to be nearly the same as the old one. Then, in a moment filled with anxiety, I swapped the urls on the two blogs.

It appears to have worked. I now have my old address with the blogger beta options.

Why did I care so much about indexing by subject? Because the subjects of my posts are all over the place, from the personal, to the random, to writing focused. Hopefully, this will make it easier for you to browse the site.

A side effect of the way I switched over is that all old comments no longer appear with the posts. But, truthfully, few people have left comments in the past (hint, hint, nudge, nudge) and I heartily apologize to those who did.
