Another visitor! Stay a while… stay forever!

For the longest time I was somewhat desperate for people to visit me and shower me with hits. This is an obsession that dates all the way back to 1997 and the other site. Apart from one brief blaze of glory, it all came to nought (which, in retrospect, was probably just as well).

When I launched this blog back in 2003 (5th anniversary in a couple of months’ time? Eek!) I fully intended it to be a full functioning web site. I wanted to have comments and trackbacks and pings and RSS feeds and all the other stuff that Movable Type installs by default.

Now though, the wonderful shininess of blogging and all things Web 2.0 has worn off, and right now, I don’t really want to be a part of it. I’m not stopping blogging entirely, but I’ve added a robots.txt file to block out search engines. This may be a bit extreme, but for now I think it’s better that only the right people know about this site.
