I don’t really care whether people read this blog or not, and that is the big difference between The Other Side of Everything and Blog of Funk, which preceded it. Previously I cared passionately about my readers, and was exploring both inner worlds and outer worlds which we seem to share in the torrent of text which poured from my eager typing fingers. These days I am simply too self-absorbed to bother with my 2.6 posts per week, or if I do write, it’s in bursts with little consistency except authorship. That isn’t to say that my standards have dropped, but my inclinations have changed.

The entire blog was successfully ported out of Blogger and into WordPress in 2008. Even though many pages on the old Blog of Funk automatically redirect to their equivalents here, and many of the old pages still remain on Funk.co.uk, recently I received a ridiculous “You’re on a malware banned list” from Google. It will be one or other of the link-swap javascript thingummies I have in the sidebar. When I put them there, nobody called them “widgets” and spam was unsophisticated and easy to prevent. These days, one security hole in WordPress has me upgrading a dozen or more websites, which is utterly tedious.

But these two events made me reconsider my old blogs, whether to turn them off entirely, or whether to return to them with new direction.

It might help if I still gave a shit. I kind of do, but then, I’m still feeling pretty flat 40 days after Brian’s death, so, I’m being patient with myself, even though the world may be forgetting me with every post I fail to write.
