This will be my new blog for the Daily Post-challenge.
Yesterday, I finally decided to move my self-hosted blog to free wordpress. I tried to import my old blog, but messed it up so badly so I ended up starting with a clean slate. I don’t know what I did wrong, or how I could mess up something so straightforward — it’s really not important. On top of the whole misery, I had the other blog connected to Twitter and Facebook so when I tried to do the import, all the posts appeared there too. I really made a fool of myself.
I won’t go into the reasons for this change, except that there are so many pros with a free wp.com blog, while taking part in this «Blog A Day» thing. Hopefully, I’ll manage to keep my readers.
It was election day here in Canada yesterday, but that was somewhat overshadowed by the news of the death of the man who has personified evil in recent years.. I was just about the grab the remote and shut the TV off on Sunday night, when the screen went all red with breaking news. It took a few seconds for the information to sink in … that it was true! It said that the President would come on soon and make a statement so I, of course, remained sitting … listening. I was thankful I was up to witness all this live … thinking about how there are not many months left to the 10th anniversary of that fateful day [night in my case] 9-11, and how the families of the victims might feel.
Now we’ll just see what happens. I doubt that flying will be any easier … we’ll probably continue to take off our shoes, be patted down, scanned or whatever, and I’ll never look at a civil airliner in the sky the same way as I did before 9-11. That changed forever!
