Moving day

I’ve moved my blog around to several services over the years. I started on Tumblr, then tried one that used Dropbox as a file server. I also tried Squarespace and WordPress but was never happy.

After seeing the initial demo of Ghost, the one I use now, I used it for a year before I switched it to a Counios and Gane blog. At some point, we were advised to close it, then I had no blog, but eventually, I found my way back to Ghost.

Everywhere I went, I’d drag my old posts around with me, trying to repurpose them for the new blogging platform. I still have a few from my Counios and Gane days that I haven’t reintegrated onto here.

I’ve always liked Ghost because of the easy-to-use interface. It reminds me of the old-school Tumblr interface. I don’t think I’ll ever move—but I’ve thought that many times before, so I’m not holding my breath.

But I love Ghost; their service has been outstanding over the years. I’ve often asked how to solve a problem, and the CEO will answer my question. I’ve watched their team grow from a couple of developers to a worldwide crew, and even now, I’m surprised to see how many more people they have.

(This isn’t an advertisement and has nothing to do with moving (which I’m also doing today), but sometimes, we accept the gifts we’re given.)

The lies our characters tell themselves

Akira Kurosawa's Rashomon tells the story of a priest and woodcutter trying to understand a murder by listening to the testimonies of the multiple people involved. Ultimately, they struggle to find the truth amongst the lies. A similar type of story occurs within each of us. We tell ourselves multiple
