The first post

So then. Welcome to the new blog! This is actually my third webhome. The first one was a crappy MSN Space thing back in 2005 (anyone remembering the MSN Space? Oh the horrors). The second was a moderately successful Wordpress blog, that allowed me to play sys-admin on my own site for some years (it's still out there. Should I take it down?). This third one was started because I was fed up with being administrator, having to deal with all the upgrades, the PHP code and the other nerdy stuff. I wanted to start anew. I wanted to get rid of the slag of history (which is a bit ironic, since I'm a historian by training, usually spending my days trying to make people preserve history). I wanted a place where I can just write. Nothing else. It's a bit like buying a new notebook. Wonderful blank pages full of promises of intellectual bravery and poetic twiddle. We'll see how it goes this time.

This is also a place where I will practice writing in English. Being a PhD candidate…
