I'm gonna be archived forever

Mr Blog's Tepid RideFriend of the site, BMJ2k, has posted up some thoughts on being a public figure, apparently inspired by our last Collective Detective tale.

Well –

I realize I had supposedly abandoned this blog, but various aspects of posterous, and content management in general, have driven me back here.

The other issue is being able to slide my content from one site to another, and no free blog host I’ve come across rivals the versatility of wordpress’ import and export.
