And here I am…
…doing the blog thing again. For those of you who have followed my various blogs over the years, thank you. I’m sorry I left you and I hope you can forgive me.
Someone recently asked me why I stopped blogging. The answer was immediate: I didn’t need to do it anymore. I was all better. For me, blogging was like therapy. I started blogging during a fairly intense period of heartache that was caused by an unexpected loss (truth be told, there were various losses: dad, brother, closest friend). My blog was extraordinarily personal. It was sad. It was happy. It was emotional. It was (I’ve been told) inspirational. When I look at some of my old posts I’m really amazed by how many different ways you can describe the most intense pain you’ve ever felt in your life… a completely shattered heart. But at some point it all became too much, even for me, so I stopped. I ran out of emotions. I ran out of things to say. I turned to other outlets of expression. I started using Twitter more. I re-engaged with Facebook. And I lost something along the way.
So here I am… doing the blog thing again. On Posterous. [Which I happen to think is one of the coolest platforms for blogging/sharing out there. Who knows if the ease of use will inspire me to write more. We shall see.] But this time I’m not here to talk about sadness. I’m actually not here to talk about anything in particular. I’m just here. And if you’re here, too, that means there’s something here that interests you. That’s cool. I’ll try to keep it interesting. And real. Hope you stick around for the ride.
Peace out homechickens. Until next time.
