There are two things that cause me to occasionally abandon this blog at baty.net for something else.
The second is boredom. I love trying new things, so whenever I find some new blogging tool, I trick myself into thinking “This is the one, for real this time!”
So, I stop posting here and add a message letting my handful of readers know where I've gone. Of course then I find myself looking something up here that I know I posted some time in the past 15 years and poking around and wondering why I ever left.
Since re-discovering ox-hugo - Org to Hugo exporter, I've found ways to reduce the friction of publishing posts. And I love writing in Emacs and Org-mode.
All this to say that I've dusted off baty.net, re-jiggered my Hugo setup, and will be posting here again for a while.
