Wow, it's been quite a week. First off, I "retired" from the newspaper business after having worked in this industry since age nine. I have created a company with my friend Steve Reynolds call Response Associates, and will be helping local businesses take advantage of the web to promote their products and services. I also plan to pick up some political writing work as the campaign season nears.
A year ago, I had to quit actively posting to this blog due to being moved into another position at the Nevada Appeal. But now I'm free to write whatever I want, and I have so much pent-up ideas I don't know where to start.
For several years, I've had this blog at kirkcaraway.com. To get the features and control that I wanted at the time, I had to build it in Drupal. It's worked fine, but now there are many services such as Posterous that do all the things that I need, without me having to worry about all the software updates, hackers, etc. These tools also allow me to connect the blog with my Facebook page and Twitter account.
So I am in the process of moving my blog over the Posterous. I am still waiting to see if they can import my old blog posts before I move the domain name, so for now KirkCaraway.com will remain online with links over to kirkcaraway.posterous.com.
Hope you can all come over to see me there. Thanks.
