Backfilling

When I came back to WordPress in February of 2007 the focus of the site (Recovering Technophile) was technology and social/political commentary. I imported my writing from the blogger blog I was leaving and those posts which fit that focus from my earlier blogs. After the technology portion withered and the politics portion blossomed I spun off the political blog – what had become Pursuit of Liberty – and removed most of the posts from that spinoff that had no connection to politics. Here I could now focus on personal, spiritual, and other topics without reservation. In that spirit I finally got around to importing my posts from those ancient blogs (2005 and earlier) so that I have over 100 “new” posts here (an additional 12.5%) in the last 24 hours.

Those who are curious can poke around my archives, but I suspect that I will be the only person who recognizes any benefit from this. I will be tagging and categorizing those posts (since tagging was non-existant and my categories from multiple blogs are disorganized) but I have all the old blog posts here now that I am ever likely to get (I would say all of them, but I leave open the possibility that some have been lost in all the shuffling). I will also be going through my journals and making some old journal entries available here as I see fit so my archives are going to start stretching into the past – potentially as far back as 1980. (That’s about when my earliest journal entries are – I don’t know yet what I will be making available.)
