I have spent a lot of time thinking about this blog the past few months -- almost certainly more time thinking about it than actually posting. I don't think blogs are a thing of the past, but I've wondered if this one was. I've never really had a theme or even a consistent tone here. I've gone weeks and weeks without posting a word, then I'll post a little flurry of things over the course of a few days. (I do the same thing on Twitter.)
The upshot is, I came thiiiiiiis close to deleting the whole thing the other day. Just . . . "Hey, it's the year's end. Let's do some housekeeping and get rid of stuff I don't need." But I couldn't. I suppose a large part of it is sentiment. Some of it is pride in a few of the posts I've written. And a very small bit of me still loves having a corner of the universe in which I can be creative. So my goal -- my GOAL, not a resolution! -- for now is to take advantage of this firmly established if seldom visited spot and try to post a little more often and see where that takes me. If you're reading this, I hope you'll stick around and let me know how I'm doing.
