And by "We are," I mean I am. 'cause I can't really blame this (curious? distressing?) decision to return to blogging on anyone else, right?
I'm still figuring out how this whole "new website" thing works, but this is where "Summa This, Summa That's" new stomping grounds will be, and what they'll look like. I think. Sort of. At least while I'm figuring things out.
I like things to be simple, so I picked a minimalist/modernist blog skin. And I like pictures; big ones. (Check, and check.) I'm not sure I'm quite sold on all the white spaces, even though I realize that usually goes hand-in-hand with the modern-minimal approach. And it took me a few tries to figure out the best way to list things, since the "default" versions of Square's blogging templates won't let me display pictures. (And I like pictures, remember? Big ones?)
But this is my very own little slice of InterWeb real estate, and I like that. I really like it.
I like the way the move has allowed/is allowing/will allow me to bring my somewhat dispersed online writing presences together under a single banner -- www.josephsusanka.com -- and I especially like being able to illuminate my once and future "Through a Lens, Darkly" reviews with images; big ones. Because writing about a highly visual medium without including lots and lots of visuals makes no sense to me. (And there's a podcasting function that looks pretty intriguing, as well, though whether that is a promise or a threat remains to be seen.)
The archives from my previous eLives are still a work-in-progress, so don't try and dig too far into the past as of yet. I'll probably add those back in as we go along, though I'm not entirely sure. Clean slates are nice, too.
As for blogging frequency, I have no idea. Literally.
Feel free to follow me about on the social medias, either on Facebook (blog-specific or person-specific), on Twitter (though I still don't really get it as a medium), on Letterboxd (if you're ready to be disturbed by the number of bad films I was), and on Google+ (if that's an actual thing that people do). Or use the RSS feature (which is working, I hope). Plus, the email's always on, so drop me a line and let me know what you think, if you're so inclined. Because we're feeling this out together, after all.
See you around!
