I just realized it\’s been a year and a month since I started blogging. I had resisted the idea of a blog for at least a year before that—I couldn\’t imagine why one would ever want to do such a thing. But then I started…and I\’ve found it impossible to stop.
This is like no kind of writing I\’ve ever done before. Writing whatever comes into one\’s mind, and sending it out into the ether, and having real people actually read it—who\’d ever thought such a thing was possible? Not having to worry about word counts, or whether the subject will be too dark or too quirky for the masses—this is real freedom,. And it\’s addictive.
But if it hadn\’t been for you, my first, faithful readers, I\’d never have stayed with it—I\’d have felt like the sound of one hand clapping, a tree falling in the woods unheard, etc. But here I am, clicking away about my obsessions, and here you are, kindly reading about them. Every time one of you leaves a comment, my heart leaps, my fingers itch to write again.
It takes a village—as Hillary would say—to make a blog. Thank you all for being my village.
