Thanks, I’m pretty excited to have it up and running! In particular the dream I had of a digital garden really being a freeing writing context is already proving very accurate, and it feels really good to have this outlet now. Just today I was on the phone with my mom and trying to explain some things about Google Drive to her, and was reminded yet again how GDrive is needlessly confusing. So I wrote a “seed” post about it right after I got off the phone! From idea to public sharing in moments.
That’s something that would have just been a blog draft hidden in the back-end of Wordpress before. It probably wouldn’t have seen the light of day for months or even years, if I ever made the time to finish it. Now it’s out there, anyone who visits can see where I stand on it (hah), and hopefully comment with their own ideas or frustrations, or simply encouragement to keep writing about it. I do have some ideas how they might improve things, and I don’t pretend they are easy to implement or even the right thing to do, but it would be great to have some dialog about it, and now that potential is there from a mere 2 minutes of work (writing the title and a few sentences, basically ).
Anyway, it’s great to have this place now, and thanks again for the original idea and inspiration.
