Advogato - RIP.

Or .. "so long and thanks for all the trust metrics".

I started blogging there in 2000. Then my account got trashed. Twice. So I moved here.

A while later Raph restored my accounts, but I enjoying the additional control of being in charge of myself so I never went back in a serious way.

In the six years since I started using it I posted two stories and 200+ blog entries. The articles weren't amazing, but they taught me a lot about dealing with criticism, and the importance of the spell checker.

The writing I do nowadays could almost be traced back to the articles I posted there. Although its only now that I have a good appreciation of how much more effort it is to write regularly than it is to write only when bored ..
