Same Blogger, Different Porch
Stay tuned while Elderly Dog learns New Tricks,
and the dust settles on Fragments–Still from Floyd
by Fred First
Yes, I’m aware this is quite a bit different from what surviving Fragments readers have seen here since 2002.
I can’t say for certain that the life of this blog is going to extend anywhere near into the future as far as it extends into the past; same thing, with even greater certainty for the blogger.
Recent intense and repeated attempts to hijack this site from numerous countries around the world have caused immense headaches for my longsuffering blog host and friend, who has finally evicted these digital thugs. Unfortunately, you’ll have to shop elsewhere for your personal plumbing dysfunctions, guys.
This is a first post to allow me to poke around Elementor–the publishing platform interface that will–if I decide to–make a much more varied and visually appealing website. I have to keep in mind that simplicity has been a big part of the charm of maintaining a blog for almost 20 years, and that nothing more than “words and pixels” are what I offer.
In case you’ve missed it, I’ve been posting over at
Earth First: Field Note from the Southern Mountains since last October. I’ll likely cross-post there concurrently with Fragments, but sometimes, only one place or the other.
I’ll be able to do more with photographs, hopefully, and with much progress up the rather steep learning curve–just now as the yard and garden will demand more and more of my increasingly limited energy.
But we’ll see. Hopefully this new platform will be the vitamins I need to risk pouring my thoughts onto a page, with pages in bottles bobbing already in countless seas. Some are actually read! Will this one be?
