Hello world! (again)
Its been quite a while since I had a first post in a blog.
I seem to habit of returning to it every few years with each iteration leaving long term effects.
hello world! was in 2015 on a wordpress site at silveress.tk, a free domain I got, silver.tk wasn't available.
Eventually I lost the domain and the free hosting I was using, along with my posts from that time.
Soon after this I got silveress.com, another one I have since lost.
Two years later I tried again with wordpress at https://words.silveress.ie (again silver.ie wasnt available).
Due to some insane luck I had the wordpress app on my phone that had cached copies of teh 2015 site.
I did write for a time on it but it fell into disuse after a while.
Part of the reason for this was it felt cumbersome-ish using wordpress.
I almost lost this site as well in a server migration.
That brings us to now, my own domain (brendan.ie) on a site I am writing in my own flavor of markdown with my own converter.
In essence, it is a fresh start on my own terms.
Yet I will keep my 2017 site up and running as it's a good milestone of where I have been, as well as a reminder how fragile anything on teh internet is, if the cogs are not maintained the entire thing falls into disrepair.
The goal this time round is to have a place to pop ramblings etc.
For example a post about markdown is high on my priority list.
After that I may convert some of my older, but still useful posts.
After that? Who knows.
Either way this has rambled on far too long, see you whenever.
