About This Website

At least once a year I get the itch to make a website. The site you’re looking at now was started in November 2022. In reality I have little of importance to say or publish, but I do like to tinker on the web and share. My goal is to host all content I create on this site first and foremost. I don’t like the idea of going to a bunch of different social platforms to post pictures here, quick updates there, long format ideas somewhere else. And on the flip side, when I go to the web my preference is to seek out information without it being fed to me by an algorithm (as much as is feasible in 2022). Anyway, I just want to say that this site is a bit of an experiment, so don’t expect it to be around for long!
