With a little bit of trepidation…

I always have grand plans – and they never quite pan out. A couple years ago, when I first picked up my current domain name, I had a few other ideas for things I wanted to do online. If you saw my host’s control panel you’d see about 5 or 6 domains just waiting for me to do something. But eventually I break down and move forward because I realize I’m never going to have a “perfect launch”.

And so, with little fanfare, I’ve quickly thrown together the start of my music blog: Used to be cool… It seemed a lot more clever when I first came up with the idea like 2 years ago. Regardless, I’ve got an about page and my first post up – as well as some swell widgets courtesy of last.fm. We’ll see how it goes.

Take a gander, and give me some feedback over here as to what you think of the idea.

  1. Interesting. Seems like the reverse of what I did (I started with the blog about general/cultural stuff, then later did the “personal” one on LJ). Personally I think you’d do fine to add the music musings to this site since it’s a big part of who you are, but that’s just one man’s opinion.

  2. @Chris – Not that I’m trying to “build a brand” or something, but I’d like to do a lot more on that site than just the blog (podcast, forums, etc.). And it’s the kind of site that I would like to develop beyond just those who know me personally – which means readers who are less interested in my new closets…

    @Kathleen – An IT job. Plus, any long entry that gets posted during the day is typically 90% written at home and simply not posted until I come up with a few more lines at work.

  3. Oh, I understand where you are coming from. When I was doing my redesign, I finally picked up my other, more appropriate blogger domain… it would have been embarassing if someone else had done so and undermined my name. It is going to become my blog archives.

    I think I can point you in the direction of a few of your peers so you can develop a community around Used to be Cool as well.
