After giving it some thought, I’ve decided I’d rather have a posting layout that’s true to the actual calendar than I would one that sticks exclusively to the Drinking Cafe Latte at 1pm calendar. Because the name “Drinking Cafe Latte at 1pm” began on November 6, 2005, I had originally wanted to backdate posts according to those that were written on or after that date (up until the beginning of the WordPress version, which began on March 16, 2014–not including “Sunstreaker,” which was literally just a day old at that point and not worth backdating or “cold-blogging”). But now that I think about it, I think that’s kinda dumb. So, I’m creating a new section of blogs called “Before Cafe Latte,” which is everything I’ve written for myself or for classes or books that predates Drinking Cafe Latte at 1pm. I think it makes more sense to present them in the time order I’ve written them to best show how I’ve changed over the years (or haven’t).
Remember that everything before March 16, 2014, including “Cold Blogs” and “Before Cafe Latte” posts, are actually reposts from older locations, and they each have a clarification or look-back added to them that I inserted during the porting process (during the month of March 2014). Most of these clarifications are simple tags that point to the original location, but a few leave comments about the content provided. So, if you’re reading one of these old blogs, and they make a time reference that makes little sense to you, consider that the original versions were written on the dates of attribution but the comments were written in mid- to late-March 2014.
