I’ve had blogs in the past, going back over twen­ty years ago. This time I’m try­ing WordPress as a blog­ging engine, since that seems to be the pop­u­lar option these days.

Speaking of the dis­tant past, you might be won­der­ing what The Phoenix Trap” is. It was the name of the rock band I was in from the late 90s to the ear­ly 2000s. I kept the domain name phoenixtrap.com long after we dis­band­ed, and fig­ure it’s as good a name as any for a blog.
