What I’m doing

So, here’s the deal:

I closed my main Facebook account for reasons outlined below. I just want to regroup. The idea that I had 225 “friends” was a ridiculous proposition anyway, and I had little interest in getting into an arms race with people over who could amass the most friends. And I may yet return, but if I do, I plan to cut that number way down, and keep it there.

I have linked this blog to my other Facebook account, so the six friends there will see this. I’m perfectly fine with letting Facebook, Buzz, and whatever help me spread whatever message I happen to formulate, but I don’t think Zuckerberg deserves to own a single one of my words. I’ve entered only the barest of demographic info in that account, and I will not use it to “like” anything on behalf of Facebook’s customers. Thank you.

As a web developer, I know I can find all the tools I need to do pretty much what I did there anyway. Last night I set up this new blog on my own server (hosted by Pair.com), using a fresh WordPress download, and assigning a just-bought domain, all in about a half hour.

And yes, I could do the same for you all for the low, low price of a bottle of Macallan 12-year-old. Make it an 18-year-old, and I’ll jump though rings of fire for you, professionally speaking.

Bear in mind that unlike Randylou.com, this is me. Not Louise or Cecelia. Just me, and a window to the inner workings of a weathered mind. Like my Facebook wall, I’d like to start posting links to things I’ve found across the internet and comment on them, just like the other 261,144,877 other bloggers out there.

Just keep in mind, that I count myself as one of the first 40,339 bloggers first seen on the world wide web. It’s true. Look it up.
