It's Bad Luck To Be Superstitious

My horoscope today said, "If you rethink a project that fell by the wayside, you'll find that the Goddess Fortuna has a sweet smile on her face."

The truth is, by waiting it out, I've come up with the feeling that I want to continue blogging. I still think this is a pretty self-indulgent habit, and maybe by now no one is checking the blog for posts or everyone's knocked this off their RSS feeds. But I started this project a year and a half ago without assuming I had readers; it was "my" project, a project that was really about me and my writing exercises.

So, I'm back.

This is how I feel about my own blog. It's a mess. I did not separate out my writing, politics, and personal lives.

For a while, I had a pretty large following of readers. That's slacked off.

But I never expected to have any readers, so I'm not all that upset.

I write to vent my frustration and help me get back to thinking. And the blog, however self-indulgent, is something I enjoy.

I'm glad you'll still be blogging. You have a very different voice, one that sounds as if it comes from far away. One I like tuning into.
