First post – meta

First post and all that. I feel that, before i go on actually posting what would be “normal” blog content i should take a few lines to explain/justify why i have started blogging, why i have started blogging with Live Journal and what kind of content will be in this blog.

I have wanted to start a blog for quite some time now (months?) and actually had a running blog on my own home computer running WordPress. But even though that gave me a lot of options and freedoms i also gave me lots of problems. The software had to be kept updated, the computer had to be online all the time and so on. So i realized that if i used one of the free blog-sites on the net someone else would have to bother about all that, and i could consentrate on writing. After a (quick) look at some different sites, I picked live journal. It is (currently) witout banner adds, runs on free software and seems “nice”. I did not pick live journal for it’s communitys as that is not really what i’m looking for, but now that it is there it may be a feature i will take advanteage of at some later point in time.

Don’t expect this blog to be much different than so many others. There will proberly be the same rambeling, daily stories and general comments on the world that surrounds me as you can find in any other blog, but it is mine and i will try to get the best out of it. Note also that i do not write this blog for the reader but primarily for my self to give me somewhere public to express my views on things.

Also, as english is my second language, I may from time to time switch to writing danish entries. Time will tell. (And neither in english or in danish will spelling be a primary consern of mine. Live with it – noone is forcing you to read this – hopefully.)
