I realized recently that blogging used to be a bigger part of my day-to-day life, and I wondered, “what happened?” Since posts were more of a journal than an “internet presence,” gaps between posts were pretty normal. But for the past few years, I’ve been spotty about posting at all.
Two reasons emerged: one, I upended my life at the end of 2010 and what I was going through was too personal and painful to articulate in a public medium. Two, I found community on Twitter, and that filled the need that blogging seemed to previously provide.
But I’d like to stretch my contemplative and political muscles a bit more and return to blogging as a practice of thinking and writing. So, this post is a message to my future self:
Hey, woman! Didn’t you say you were going to blog more?
