The Pajama Pundit Re-boot Is Here



Hide your sons and daughters.


Hello world. It's been a minute, no? The last post here was five years ago, and at that time posts were sporadic at best anyway.

So, what has changed? A LOT.

1. The Name. One of the many reasons that I slowed in blogging was lack of anonymity that I experienced. As you might recall (if any of our regular readers are still around), at one point Google decided that you couldn't be anonymous on the web - you had to provide a legitimate name to associate with your website. That, apparently, is no longer a requirement.

2. Life. During the heyday of this site, Yours Truly was a stay-at-home-dad (and I wrote about it often). Nearly 10 years ago, I once again found myself in gainful employment. While awesome to be amongst the working living again, it left very little time to devote to this project. Which, as a side note, is too bad.

As you can see from the chart, we had grown quite a robust readership here and I hated to walk away from that. I still hate that we parted ways.

3. The Brand. Like a dummy, I didn't set up the original url (thepajamapundit.com) to auto-renew each year. One day at work I went to visit the site for shits-n-giggles and found this:

Yeah. My domain name had been bought out from underneath me and some nameless, faceless entity is now hocking a "become a cop and protect freedom" spam site. Needless to say, I was pissed.

So I decided to walk away from this whole thing. For a while at least. Which brings us to number four...

4. Donald Trump. I'm not sure that I need to put much of a description here. In 2016, what I thought was the unthinkable happened: we the people elected Donald Trump to be the 45th President of the United States. I maintain a couple of other websites, as well as personal Facebook and Twitter accounts, and I've found that I'm tired of holding my digital tongue. I needed to re-discover my critical political voice. And I've got A LOT to say about President Trump that is, errr, ummm, critical in nature.

And here we are. A re-boot. As you can see, I've spruced up the place a little bit since the last time that you were here. To refresh your memory, the joint used to look something like this:

Not too shabby for someone who taught themselves HTML and CSS. I decided to upgrade to the format that you're seeing right now to capitalize on more of a "magazine" style look. Things are organized by subject, and things that interest you should be a bit easier to find.

Also, I have to give myself a bit of a pat-on-the-back. In dusting off the cobwebs I remembered that in 2012 I started a website called Donald Trump Sez - well before anyone thought that he would actually become POTUS. It's still out there, if you'd like to check it out.

So, have a look around and you can (hopefully) expect some more activity from this place. Welcome back home. Don't forget to add the 's' on the end of the URL.
