Welcome To The New Hog Blog!

January 6, 2012

So this is still totally under construction, but since I’ve already publicized the move, I ought to lay out some sort of red carpet… or at least a decent swath of linoleum.

With all the work that’s ahead of me, I’m having a hard time letting go of the work that came before… namely, almost five years of posts.  There were a bunch of photographs, videos, and a lot of words poured out on those pages over that half-decade of vanity publication.  Seriously, I feel like at least a couple of those old posts were keepers and I hate to lose them, but hey, maybe it’s time to take a step back.

The Navajo make these really cool works of art from colored sand.  Some of them are quite intricate.  And when they’ve finished, they offer up a prayer and dump the sand into the wind.  It’s all about the impermanence of things and the willingness to discard wordly possessions (or somesuch).  It’s a pretty smart way to approach things.

But there you go…  I’m still working on moving the old stuff over, but it may not happen and I need to get used to it.

Beyond that, my plan is to keep on keeping on.  For those kind souls who’ve hung on to follow the Hog Blog so far, I want to give you more of whatever it was that kept you coming back in the first place.  (How’m I doing so far?)  And for new readers, I hope I can make it fresh enough and informative enough to bring you back for more.

And that’s enough of that.  I’m still working on the move, so I hope ya’ll can bear with me until things are running back to “normal”.
