So, here we are again

I technically started blogging on Diaryland before moving to LiveJournal, but that was before I'd heard the term "blogging", so I tend to think of Blogger as the place where I started walking the Path of the Blogger.

And now, I have returned!

It's a bit different from the last time I was here, though I couldn't tell you how because I don't remember the old version. It just looks... like pretty much everything else Google does, minimalism for its own sake.

Anyway, I was on self-hosted WordPress for a long time. I like the level of control I had over everything -- I could customize the hell out of things. Edit the phps and what have you. Very nice. There were really only two reasons I decided to switch back:
  1. I barely scratched the surface of the near-endless options at my fingertips
  2. (more importantly) I was tired of the daily automated emails telling me that my files had been compromised, so please scan them and remove the threat.
If I'm on Blogger, then stuff like that is largely Google's problem -- I just need to make sure my password isn't "password1" and I'm good.
