Back (in a number of ways)

“Back” seems to be my very own meme for this year’s end:

  • first of all as you might have noticed, I’m back to the blogosphere. Don’t expect huge amounts of conversations: I’ve been dropping blogging for the past few months due to a number of reasons, both personal and professional: some nasty, some unexpected and some great: I’m not going to delve into each and every one, suffice to say that in the upcoming weeks some of those reasons (well, at least the good ones) will face up, and suffice to say that life has been like a roller coaster lately;
  • then, actually, I’m back to that roller coaster. More stuff is happening, and it seems it’s going to be, for better or for worse, a major turning point in my personal life. And no, I’m not going to blog about it, but if you see me disappear, don’t hold your breath just yet.
  • finally, my back hurts. A lot. I’ve been basically in bed for the past few days, swallowing all sorts of painkillers and medications, wrapping my lower back in plasters and trying to convince myself that I’m not such an old fart. So far, I haven’t been that successful and I guess it’s almost time to seek for professional help.

Oh, by the way, this post is also an excuse to test the new blogging software: I finally decided to abandon b2evolution in favor of WordPress, for the very same reasons almost everyone is switching. I’m sorry for the noise this is going to cause in your aggregator feeds: hopefully this software, this time, is here to stay (well, apart from the skin, that is).
