Four Years Have Passed

As of today, four years have passed since the last time I posted here. Wow. Perhaps evident by the subject matter of the post that has had the distinction of being labeled the most recent for 48 months in a row, I never really intended to stop posting here like I did. Nevertheless, in retrospect, several circumstances at the time led to that very thing happening. With that being the case, I wonder if, say, I start routinely posting here again, whether I could still place the phrase "since 2001" on any logo displayed at the top of the page?

I bring that up because I’m seriously considering once again writing every so often on here. To be honest, I’m not so sure what I would discuss with any regularity, but, then again, I remember that being an occasional problem in the past but not one that could be overcome. In any event, I do have to say that I have sometimes missed the long-form style of writing that works well with this format.

One thing I could use my blog for could be to provide a background to any new photos I include on my Flickr page, which now has over 2,000 images and is largely where I’ve concentrated my attention in the four years since my last post ( redirects there now too). Actually, thinking this over, that would be hardly revolutionary, since I remember that sharing recent photos I had taken as well as discussing the details of how they came about made up a significant portion of my posts in the past.

Taking into account the last thing I posted in 2008, I also obviously enjoyed writing about the weather, specifically in Brainerd, Minnesota. Being my hometown, that I picked that locale to talk about was no coincidence, but there was another good reason too. I believe I wrote about this sometime in the past, but, not having refreshed my memory by combing through previous blog posts, I don’t know for sure. Anyhow, I spent a good amount of time collecting all of the weather records there are to collect with regard to the city of Brainerd and sorted all that information into easily read tables and charts such as the ones available for St. Cloud, Minnesota on this website. With information like this, comparisons between days, months, years, or any other period can be made with ease and may even be enjoyable to anybody who has an interest in weather.

I once had all of this information online, but I never found a new hosting service when Yahoo! shut down Geocities. Nonetheless, all of the files that made up the website are still on my computer, and after updating with data for the most recent years as well as improving some formatting issues, I would like to make the tables and charts once again available and linked to at the website showing the data my personal weather station in Brainerd have been supplying to Weather Underground since the end of 2006. Assuming I re-launch the website containing weather statistics, I would also like to perhaps provide monthly weather summaries chronicling the month that has just passed. Preliminarily speaking, I’m thinking I could use the blog as a way to share and archive these summaries.

Anyway, all of what I’ve written, which actually is much more than I was ever intending to write, is to say that this blog may get revived sometime in the future. If you’re reading this now, I guess you might just want to stay tuned to see what happens.
