Welcome to the new home of this blog; I'm glad you found your way here. There's work to do yet setting up all the features exactly as I want, but I think it's close enough to ready to take it out for a spin and introduction.
One major change you'll notice is that comments will be possible both here on the site, and on Google+. I will always post a link to G+ when there's a new entry here. With the Blogger platform I often had some trouble doing that. Here, it is seamless and reliable (so far). I also noticed many times, people would comment on a post... somewhere. Their comments would wind up in a strange limbo between G+ and Blogger/Blogspot, and I could not reply.
Other than that, I will say that Blogger kind of felt to me like "training wheels" for blogging. Today, I am taking them off. I expect a few scraped knees, but so it goes. Also in the forecast: overstretched metaphors. But I don't think the platform where I host the blog affects that.
Thanks for reading.
