On Resurrecting One's Blog

As I opened up my Blogger feed for the first time in an embarrassingly long time, I saw posts from kiwi-d at http://davesmechanicalpencils.blogspot.com, which he resurrected after a nearly three-year hiatus.

It got me thinking I ought to update this blog more often as well. After all, it started off as a place for me to share what I thought was "cool stuff," and only evolved into a typewriter-centric blog a year or so on after my discovery of the typewriter, and the Typosphere thereafter.

But it got to the point where I was only sharing when I felt like dragging out one of my typewriters, which, while I still find it fun, I was finding myself doing less and less often. Eventually I only posted when I found a new typewriter to add to the collection.

Rather than limit the blog to typecasts and typewriter-related/retro-tech related things, I'm going to take it back to the general-purpose blog I remember from when I started coolstuff4819 in 2011 (heck, the first post was about my brand-new camera, the Sony DSC-HX1!). 

Typewriters will certainly make an occasional appearance, but so will my myriad other interests, which have definitely evolved in the interim.

To those who still read this blog, despite the draws of microblogging via Instagram/Twitter/Facebook, thanks!
