I have been putting together the loose bits and pieces of this blog into the archive page, articles and posts dating back to 2005. Earlier stuff from 2004 has been lost long ago.
In total, 2 378 different posts. Not including their respective translations and the content that I have chosen to keep as drafts or unlisted parts of this website. Instagram photos that I have imported account for 1 495 pages.
Moving this content from the old blog also meant setting up 654 redirects to avoid broken links, and setting up a new update process on Disqus to make sure old comments are also migrated.
Because this is a reflection of who I am and how I have grown up. It’s a diary in more ways than one. It’s also my way of sharing and trying to build for the sort of society and web that I want to be widespread.
A word of advice, own your content
Blogspot, Tumblr, Facebook and Flickr. Every service that does not charge to host our content is a weak spot. If they disappear, our content may go with them. At least here, I am free to host it, share it without having to abide to what is considered proper, and I am responsible for what I write and show.
As an example, an illustrator I follow on instagram had one of her drawings reported and removed because it was too explicit. You can click here if you want to see it. This way I can share it with you, and you know straight up that it is questionable by Instagram’s standards.
This being my own website, I am personally responsible for what I publish and its effects. Today this is important, even more than when I started blogging back in 2005.
