Why the New Blog?
I have decided to move my blog from Brian.Shaler.name to BrianShaler.com as part of a restructuring and re-purposing of the former. The idea is that I can focus Brian.Shaler.name as the professional side of my web presence, while BrianShaler.com will be more casual.
It seems fitting to have one location for showcasing projects (both commercial and for-fun) and another for sharing my thoughts. After all, the purpose of my web presence is to establish a brand around my name.
By moving this blog to its own location, I should be able to post more freely, without having to take into consideration the professional atmosphere of the site. Think of it as Brian.Shaler.name being a company/brand site and BrianShaler.com being the site of its one employee.
This should result in more frequent posts and more conversation.
