Reboot

I started this blog in May 2007 as a way to share my thoughts about a trip to Portugal I was about to make with my father. I posted fairly faithfully for that trip, but then turned my blogging attempts to Facebook, rather than keeping this updated.

Following the Facebook privacy bru-ha-ha of this week, it’s clear to me that posting content on Facebook is really not a great option. They have, on more than one occasion, changed their user policy in such a way that insinuated that they could, potentially, own the content that you as a user freely post to the site. They backed off, again, of course, but the ongoing threat is an important one to take note of. So I have. And I’m going to gradually stop using Facebook for posting new content. Particularly my writing endeavors.
Instead, I’m going to reboot this blog and try to update it several times a week. In it, I’ll be sharing personal stories, ranting about politics and providing my own slanted analysis of ongoing local and world events. 
‘Entre as ondas’ is Portuguese for ‘between the waves’. For me, this is that moment of stillness between undulations, where a wave is neither crawling up the shore nor retreating: a chance to stop, think, reflect and share.
