Years ago, I had a blog at www.vox.com. I used to post on it regularly, including regular updates on my journey to the Arctic Circle from the UK in a Fiat Cinquecento in 2009, for charity, don’t you know.
For reasons unknown, www.vox.com was just closed down and I was unable to blog on it any more. It’s amazing how hard it was/is to find an online blog that ‘felt’ nice and ‘useable’. I couldn’t find one that I liked so gave up, until recently. I’ve had a website and hosting for several years now and have primarily used it for hosting obscure things for friends and family. I have now decided to host my own blog, so that I can do as I please with it and don’t have to adhere to anyone else’s terms and conditions.
I usually have a lot to say, so I guess this is my chance. I have no idea how I’m going to encourage people to visit, but I will find a way. I will also see if anyone else I know would care to blog occasionally here, too. So, here’s to my first post which will hopefully be followed by many more.
