A conflagration of blogs

Recently I decided that it was time to relaunch my blog. I’ve been blogging in various guises and on various sites since 2003.

The trouble was that I’ve got too many blogs.

For example, I’ve got blogs on livejournal, blogger, two on wordpress (main one, one about my adventures in allotmenteering) a couple on Posterous (main one, one about skyrim (the amusingly named ‘an arrow to the knee‘, one about enjoyable sentences), two on Tumblr (one main one as well as one set up with a friend to post photos of coffee) as well as a presence on Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, Google+ and so on.

They were all interlinked, and cross-posted to each other in various ways – a post to my dakegra.tumblr.com will update @dakegra on Twitter and trigger a post on wordpress to my defunct dakegra.wordpress.com. Somewhere along the line dakegra.posterous.com gets updated and probably triggers another post to @dakegra.

Posts to coffeecuppics.tumblr.com would update @coffeecuppics on Twitter and trigger posts to… oh, I don’t know. Somewhere.

Horribly complicated.

So I’ve decided to start afresh. Sort of[1]

I’d bought the domain name espressococo.com earlier this year, having woken up from a dream in which I was drinking in a coffee shop of that name, decided that it was far to lovely a domain not to have, and promptly acquired it. I’ve sat on it ever since, wondering quite what to do with it.

And now I know.

So, welcome to espresso coco. Home of my ramblings, cool things I’ve found on the internets, photos of interesting coffee, ruminations on life in Leeds, thoughts about Skyrim, ponderings on various other subjects, with the odd enjoyable sentence thrown in for good measure.



[1] I’ve taken some/most of the content of the various other blogs and imported them here.

  1. *waves back* Glad you consolidated your blogs, it’s great to be able to read them here. I love the blog name (that was a really coherent dream) and pleased you’ve kept the subtitle from LJ too. 🙂

    1. It was one of those where you think ‘oh, it must be taken’, realise it’s not, get all excited. I’ve bought loads of domains over the years and not known what to do with them. Other alternative was flyingaardvark.com

      And I absolutely love the subtitle. Sums me up.
