Running... Again?

  If you know me you know there was a time about 10 years ago or so where I was running. A lot. At least 5 days a week and at least 5 miles a run. I wasn’t training, I wasn’t preparing for a race or a marathon. I just found myself enjoying the time spent running. I wasn’t obsessed with numbers, but I kept track of them all and liked seeing improvements in time and distances. It was good physical health and mental health. Then I tweaked my knee. Not bad enough that I couldn’t walk on it, just a tweak that told me I needed to back off of running for a little bit. So I decided on 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks I aborted a run very early as the pain was still there. 2 weeks became 3, became a month, became 5 years. 

Back to Blogger

So I've found my way back to Blogger. Not quite coming around full circle, since I think I started back on Xanga way back when (does anyone still use that, by the way?), but it's pretty close to the first "real" blogging platform I've used. So why did I change, and do you really care? You probably don't, but I changed for the same reason I changed last time; price vs. use.

Drupal Gardens, my most recent blogging platform, is a great setup and I thoroughly enjoyed it and would still be there, if they weren't stuck in 1999. When it came out of beta they had free and fee based plans, which is fine, except their free accounts were limited to a paltry 50 MEGABYTES of storage. I have photos that are larger than that, not that I would upload a full size image there to begin with. 50 megs was just way too small, and I was in fact already over the 50 meg limit. Their cheapest paid account is $100 a year, which isn't really that bad, except I rarely blog and it certainly isn't worth it to me to pay $100 for less than a post a week. So I find myself back at Blogger... for now.
