A while back I decided to discontinue this blog. The new wineanorak is in a magazine format, and now it’s mobile responsive and modern and the right sort of home for all my writing. Time, I thought, to let the blog die. After all, blogging is dead.
For a number of years, the blog had sort of taken over from the main site, but not completely: I’d decided to keep the two running together for the sake of having somewhere to park longer articles. But because the main site was still static html (I know!), it became much easier to update the blog. So stuff that previously would have been posted on the main site became blog posts. This is the trouble when you’ve been going for a long time: you end up with a site structure based on artefacts.
Now I have got the main site going well with some great content and a sensible structure, I’ve realized that there’s nowhere for the personal stuff – the sort of quirky content that I think added something to wineanorak. It made it human. Authentic. So I think I’ll start posting stuff again to this blog: things that don’t necessarily fit with a serious, wine-focused website.
So the blog is reborn. It won’t be for everyone, I know. But I will share stuff: what I’m up to at the moment, a bit of commentary, things floating around my mental space, and maybe the odd bit of personal stuff. If you like to read this sort of thing, then welcome. If you don’t, you can stick to the main site. I understand. We’ll see how it goes.
