So, it is finally happening: peciva.com is being revived.
See, the pressure was coming on from all sorts of directions. Some of my more blog-savvy friends were dissing me for my static web front-end—if you want to attach a web site to your name in this day and age, you should damn well do it properly. Readers of my Groundcrew mass mailings were making noises about how they were too infrequent, too long and too devoid of pictures. As for myself, I was getting frustrated with not having an outlet for all the random bits of reality happening to me. And besides, just about everyone else has a blog.
Which is why peciva.com is now stepping up and, with a loud cry of “I’m Alive!”, charging into the fray.
So what should you expect, here? Well, Groundcrew recipients will be able to enjoy less coherent reports at more unpredictable intervals. I can publicly rant about things that other media won’t pay me to rant about. And those blog-savvy friends might instead diss me for how I always drink double flat whites, when there are perfectly good trim lattes to be had.
How it works out, time will tell. Meanwhile, I’ll just post a symbolic photo of an Australasian gannet taking off to boldly venture into the great unknown of the Tasman Sea. Just because I can.
(Actually, this gannet is trying to land—and only because a member of the opposite sex happens to sit around and look available.)
So there you have it. Check back often—and please let me know what you think!
