Under construction {place hokey gif here}

Alright. A friend suggested I blog more. So, guess what? I’m going to try to blog more.

And geez this place is dusty and a bit stale. So gotta clean it up a bit.

So, making some changes around here. There’s a sweet extension called Jetpack that lets you tie your hosted WordPress blog into a lot of wordpress.com features, and I’ve enabled the comment feature. You can now comment via your Facebook, Twitter, or WordPress.com account. (Or you can still fill in the blanks yourself, I think. Needs testing.)

I might change up the theme, I haven’t decided yet. I am going to make some changes to the content. I’m debating whether to force LJ commenters over here or not — for the moment, I’ll leave the option, but it is something that I’m thinking about. I know I occasionally use the LJ account for musings that I’d prefer to keep semi-private and consolidating comments on an all too public blog doesn’t help that goal.

Other question — as I’m starting up the blog slog again, topics would be a nice suggestion.

A few I’m likely to veto, though:

I’m not entirely averse to discussing politics, but I’m a bit tired of it and at the point where I’m likely to descend into long rants that will offend half the political spectrum, including several members of my family. (I love them very deeply even if I do not understand why they vote the way they do.)

Religion’s also a tough one, as I’m capable of some rather unorthodox opinions on the subject. That said, I actually own a Qur’an and have been wanting to read it for a while now, but I want to get a better handle on the founding religious document of the faith of my culture first, so I’m thinking about doing a Bible read. (I’m also thinking about doing a Book of Mormon read for two reasons: (1) the lulz (2) like it or not, Mormonism is a uniquely American religion and is going to play a larger part in the culture going forward. Mitt Romney might be the first Mormon to make it this far, but I am certain he will not be the last.)

Other than that, I’m pretty much open to subject matter. Go ahead, toss away. See what you can come up with.

That’s about it. Please bear with our mess, we hope to have construction complete in the near future.

In the meantime, katster go sleep.
