I have blogging since 2001, back in the day when Pitas.com was the social networking platform of choice and if you had Greymatter or B2 running on your self-hosted domain you were the bee’s knees of geekery. Weblogs pretty much started out with short-form posts chock-full of links to various articles and memes online, much like Twitter these days.
In December 2019, during Christmas break, I was browsing through my old links list and came across Kottke.org, arguably the godfather of blogs, which still retained the old-school flavor of hypertext link sharing rather than long-form ramblings (the latter may have been perpetuated by Blogger and LiveJournal midway through the Noughties).
Finally, a few months later, I decided to register the last remaining popular extension of my maiden surname, Siaton, as a TLD. Thus, I will be using Siaton.net (both .com and .org versions are not available) as a more traditional style of weblog.
