It’s getting pretty lonely at the Paley Center for Media. In spite of Links for Lunch and Eats for Endorsement, my Summer has been full of long stretches – days at a time – where I don’t see a single human I know. Sure, I can walk out my front door and be assaulted with crowds of tourists, but these are not my people. I know because of how slowly they waddle down the sidewalk, among other reasons. Even the comments here on my blog have dropped off. Is everyone vacationing in their Summer estates in the Hamptons or something? Is it my breath? Where is everyone?
Today I learned why WordPress creates a whole new domain for installing itself. My wee little lesson involved wiping out everything on my web site for a few hours. Now I’m older, wiser, and willing to accept my new homepage has a “.blog” prefix. I hope you, dear reader, can accept that as well.
In happier news, the archives are up and running, along with the rest of ninapaley.com. And I can already tell that WordPress kicks Blogger’s ass. Big thanks to Ariel, who actually knows how all this works.
Dear readers, please leave a comment if you’re still out there!
