When I first started this blog a few months ago, it was on a lark. I figured I would be real hyped about it for a while and go full-bore, but then slowly lose interest and let it die out. I figured none of my friends would care, and I’d never get a following.
Boy, was I wrong. What started out as an off-the-cuff idea has grown into something that people have taken an interest in, not only locally, but also from much farther away. My Twitter feed is gaining new followers every day, and I’ve noticed a steady increase in traffic during the past few months. I’m not massively popular and I never suspect I will be, but it’s been encouraging.
So that leads me to this: A new blog with its own domain and a move from Tumblr to WordPress. I’ve been tinkering with WP all week – if you follow me on Twitter, you know I’ve put out a few beggars for help – and while I’ll still try a few nips and tucks as far as appearance goes, I’m happy with the simple, clean look I had with the Tumblr blog, a look I’ve tried to duplicate here, but with more content. The Tumblr will still stay active for linking purposes, but this will be my new home from here on.
Speaking of content, I’m going to try to give a bigger pushing what’s going on in the Columbia, SC, area. With Conquest coming online soon, World of Beer and Flying Saucer hosting more events and Green’s renovating its growler system, there’s a lot of growth in the beer community locally, and I want to try to be more of a part of it.
But as always, this is all done for fun and in hopes of exposing people to something new. I don’t have an ego about all this, and I’m humbled to have even one person pay attention. It’s the same DBR as before, just with a new home.
Cheers. Thanks for reading, and welcome to http://www.drinkblogrepeat.com.
