The San Francisco treat -
As I review my blog-past (anniversaries tend to sputter into reflection of some kind), I'm trying to decide if this space is evolving or devolving. When I started out I had no faithful readers, and I felt incredibly free to just write whatever I felt like writing. But for the past few months, I've felt some kind of weird obligation to try to write to my (known) audience. And I think it's made my posts weaker - trying to please the masses (ha) as opposed to just doing as I damn well please.
So, obviously, I've got to get back to posting whatever the heck I want. You'll either read it or not, but the reason I do this blog is to flush out all the random stuff that floats through my head and blocks the real stuff that needs to come out. It acts as a sort of brain-suppository, as it were (excuse the potty analogy). My blog-writing's all over the place, I know, but that's just how it has to be.
Another blog-thing that's been on my mind is: what if I want to try another blog-system (i.e., change from Blogger to something else), will this be mo' trouble than it's worth? I'm certainly not looking for trouble. I want to keep the design that Christa did for me (where are you Christa??), but I think there might be a more reliable format than Blogger. Suggestions? What works for you?
Wonder how we settled on the word "blog"? I know it's short for web-log, but I think of a log as just a list of things. It's really a journal, but I guess nothing catchy came out of that: "wournal," "bournal," "jeb," "e-nal," "e-J"? OK, "blog" it is.
Please pass the Blog-a-Roni.
