Welcome to the new Bored Horse

Hey look, there's a new site here. I wanted to play around with some web tech, and it ended up being this site. The idea isn't a new one, I've been meaning to get a new place to publish things up for quite some time now. The need has grown, and it makes sense that my weekly newsletter – The Bored Horse – had a proper place to live.

I don't put everything in that newsletter, I try to keep it to the point. Sometimes there are other things I'd like to highlight or mention, this would be the natural place for it.

I can honestly say that I've missed blogging, if that's a word we're still using. Publishing online, that's the one. While I love newsletters, it's an altogether different thing.

For those of you who've been with me from the start with Bored Horse, you might recall that I launched the site on January 1st, 2022. It was an experiment then, too. I'd been playing around with Astro and wanted to build a site on it in the open. It was a fun project, and I updated the site regularly, alongside the link newsletter that I ran on the now defunct newsletter service Revue (thanks Elon...).

We're at a similar place now, with the essay newsletter, still titled The Bored Horse published weekly alongside this very site.

So, welcome to the new Bored Horse. I hope you'll like it.

Oh, before I go, you can find social links at the bottom of the page, if you want to get in touch. If you want to subscribe to updates, but newsletters aren't your thing, there's an RSS feed as well.

Happy reading.
