Many, many months ago, I started another blog. I won’t even bother to tell you where. It has one entry. It was a pretty good entry – a mixture of whimsy and pretension, with a touch of optimism for things to come.

So much for optimism.

Now, in an attempt to drop the pretension, I am starting this new blog. It carries the same name as a Tumblr blog I started some months ago, which will now become the Timbledown Annex. Or something like that. It’s where I’ve been storing links I find to interesting things, and share them with friends.

I’ll continue to add to the Annex over time, more frequently than I plan to add to this one. This blog will now be the main blog, where I post things I’ve created – essays, pictures, the occasional bit of poetry perhaps, and any other thoughts I feel important enough to share with the world at large.

If I feel so inclined, I might import that first post from the other site here in future. But for now, I think starting with the second post first gives me a bit more freedom.

So, if you’ve stumbled upon Timbledown from elsewhere, or came here because you know me, welcome. I hope you come away with something interesting, but if not, well, there’s always the next post.
