I’m not a fan of year in review type things in general. Maybe it’s because I’m always looking back. Maybe that’s because I’m perpetually behind. Who knows. But, I think 2008 is worth a blurb, so here goes.
2008 was a memorable year, unfortunately it was mostly of the want-to-forget-but-can’t kind. I kind of saw it coming, but it’s one of those things where you can’t start drinking fast enough, because it only seems to get nastier.
I know, this has absolutely nothing related to what this site ought to be about. Hopefully this is a crisis that is totally irrelevant to you. That’s all I want to say about 2008 in particular.
On to brighter things.
Some take the holidays to change their site banner, or theme, or otherwise retool. I suppose that you could say that I do those things, but they tend to be more drastic in nature. 2008 will be no different.
The layout is austere, but don’t read too much into that.
For my feed subscribers, the feed that brought you to this post is going to transition to a shortened feed containing blurbs that I embed in the images on the front page (mouse hover titles) and use for archives. They don’t appear anywhere else, but they’re kind of lame, so it’s up to you whether you want to keep subscribing to it.
In its place, I’ve created a new full feed.
That’s all. Best wishes for 2009, and I’ll see you on the other side.
