When I first set up this site in 2010, I built it with Drupal 6. Back then I decided it was time to get back into blogging, since my lengthy break from it. Before my Drupal site I had been using either some self developed blogging systems (first with flat files and php, then with PHP and database), or I had different simple static websites without a blog or other dynamic and structured content.
I chose Drupal because it seemed flexible enough with loads of interesting features. It comes with custom content types, and can be extended with many modules (Drupal's version of extensions or...

I have gained access to your devices
My software enables me with access
to all your private info
I could easily download
all your private info
I can effortlessly gain access
to all your private info
How it could become possible
You were opening the links

The myth that hard work is always rewarded, and it eventually leads to success, is embedded into most people's minds. If you put in the work you will reap the benefits sooner or later. And if you didn't succeed, it was because you didn't work as hard as you thought.

As the days grow darker and colder, my creativity and motivation just want to hibernate like a pair of grumpy bears. Even the most creative, motivated, enthusiastic people have those times when their creativity is not exactly fired up.
