First off – sorry for the really, really old posts from this blog that are all over the WordPress Planet. I (finally) upgraded this blog to the latest and greatest WordPress from version 1.5.x-beta. Yeah, you heard me right.
So here’s a quick recap for all interested. I am carthik, and I used to very active in the WordPress world until somehwere around January 2006, first as a support forum volunteer, back when Matt was “allusion” and Mark was “Podz”, and the other Mark was single , then as a documentor and then a little bit of development, which never really took off.
I am grad student, and at any point in the past two years, I swear I haven’t been more than 6 months from graduating Unfortunately I have had to stick around in school for a little longer than I expected. I did not like that one bit, and so I came up with a plan to graduate – reduce all other activities drastically. That has, variously, made me unhappy, frustrated, bored and cut-off so I gave up on that.
Yesterday I passed a significant landmark – completed a major portion of work, and I had promised myself that as soon as I get that done, I will try and make an effort to at least upgrade my blogs and think about their future. So here I am.
The last post on this blog was made in September 2005. Yup, almost two years ago – so many of you who read this might not know about this blog, or me. This was the first WordPress-powered blog about WordPress. There are so many of these around now that keeping track of them all is difficult. Some pander to professional bloggers (back in 2005 there were no professional bloggers), some to theme hunters, some deliver WP-related news and gossip etc. I have read all of them, and have enjoyed reading some of them. I now have to figure out what WordLog can do in the coming future. The audience I used to address has upped and left – or perhaps not. If everything goes according to plan, I will post here infrequently, maybe once or twice a week, with stuff that deserves attention. That equation has worked out quite well in the past at the other Ubuntu blog I write.
Lots of things have changed around WordPress – in fact I wanted the first new post here to be a summary of the changes around the WordPress family – but then I had to write this one now to explain the sudden planet-flooding. So see you around the planet, but no so much as some of the other regulars! If you are an old WP-friend, or someone who remembers me, drop by and say hi!
