I wanted to change the way I handle my blog but I didn’t want to burn down 17 years of baty.net history to do it.
I could have used a subdomain of baty.net, but I love blogs and the .blog TLD nicely promotes the idea that blogs are still a thing.
So baty.blog it is.
Posts here will be pretty much the same as always. I’m planning to include more microblog-type posts and send everything to micro.blog for distribution.
There is no grand design here, I was just getting bored lugging around 17 years of posts. I’m using WordPress, which makes everything easy. My infatuation with static blogging tools remains, but my patience with them hasn’t. I just want to type some words and click “Publish”.
baty.net remains as-is for now. It’s nothing but static HTML so it’ll just sit there nicely, forever I hope.
