Okay, so it’s been a while since I’ve contributed anything to my own blog. I know that’s a little sad. Also a little ironic considering how much stuff has been going on “up here” [tapping brain]. Work, parenthood, and all have been real adventures, but I’ve not taken the time to perform a mental inventory and determined what select cuts I’d like to share with my friends and followers. More and more I feel I need to do that – not necessarily because it would be interesting, but mainly because I need to park it somewhere else before either I get filled beyond capacity or it gets lost in the shuffle. Also I’ve been inspired by such great bloggers such as James Lileks who make it seem so easy. I know it’s not, but you never know how these things are going to turn out.
There are some topics and areas that I would really like to spin off into discussions of their own. Those bloggers I admire always state that it is best to keep your posting onto specific subjects, and not “scattershot” everything you may know and love into one place – so I’m working on that, too. The plan is to keep this place for the more personal commenting, and take the reviews and more geeky topics to other homes.
I’m trying to use less and less Facebook, and not just for the privacy issues – I really don’t feel it’s best to bring the full load of laundry to that forum and lay it out. It’s more how I’ll catch up with others’ goings-on (or is it going-ons?) and quick pokes here and there. I’m trying to divert the creativity here when I can. Twitter is always fun, but obviously the constraints of the medium don’t allow for much depth.
Also gonna experiment with new posting tools – so if a one-paragrapher pops into my head while waiting in line at the Costco, I might be able to get it up before it gets knocked out trying to recall what flavor of gelato I was supposed to bring home.
Kind of feels like going back to a town where I used to live – let’s see how long I stay this time. <wink>
