There’s something you should know. You are part of an experiment. Some of you may feel like I’ve violated your trust, using you without your permission. If it makes you feel any better, you’re not an important part. If you like feeling important, I’m really sorry.
Just being here, reading this post, is all it took.
In a few seconds you’re going to start getting tired of this post, and that’s o.k. It’s expected. Just seeing this post made my test a success.
The truth is I’ve been playing around with new software again. You have no idea how relieved I am to finally admit it. I don’t feel dirty any more. I don’t have to sneak around behind my old program’s back, worried we’ll be caught in the act. You see, I’ve been cheating on my blogging software. I’ve had a little badge for it down in the corner for a while now: MarsEdit. We’ve had some really good times together… and kept each other going during some rough ones too. How do I reward it? I start seeing a sweet little number named MacJournal.
Oh, I’ve done my share of rationalization. I’m a pro (if I may be allowed this small pinch of egomania). The new software can serve as a depository for all of my writing, not just the stuff that ends up on the blog. It can also serve as a backup for my blog. It’ll keep a copy of all my posts on my hard drive, as well as automatically synchronize it’s database with a remote server AND my other computers.
MarsEdit was never intended for those things, so I can’t blame it. It does what it’s supposed to do really well – simply and efficiently.
We’ll see if MacJournal can do a whole bunch of stuff as well.
