Welcome to my “new” blog.  Part of the overall reason for orangemoose.com is to provide a place for me to capture and share what I’m up to, both just generally as part of my work, home and hobby life, and for any of the steady stream of projects I can’t seem but help to undertake.  I’ve made attempts at blogging before, first on Tumblr and then on WordPress.com, but failed to develop the regular habit of posting. That struck me as odd as I post to Twitter quite frequently and often struggle to fit my answer to Twitter’s “What are you doing?” question in 140 characters. Meanwhile my blog had never gotten beyond a very small number of longer, carefully constructed magazine article-style posts and so failed in its intended role as a diary shared via the web.

So, the blog idea is reborn with two key tweaks. First, I’m going to lean towards more frequent, shorter posts that complement (and probably extend) my Twitter utterances.  Second, it’s part of orangemoose.com where I’ll be more regularly tending a variety of posting efforts including software, web applications, and shared media, and therefore where I can work separately on detailed expositions as articles outside the flow of my blog.

Let’s see if it works…
