I miss writing.
During my Christmas trip up to Boston my Mom and sister lamented that I no longer post entries to the blog. There are many reasons for this...reasons I have discussed before. Like the arrival of Facebook and Twitter taking up the time I used to dedicate to Interravision. When they mentioned the blog I felt a pang in my stomach, a sense of loss...I miss the process of telling stories.
But I am realizing that one of the biggest reasons I stopped writing is that as I get older I get more and more concerned about privacy issues. Or perhaps as I have connected my life to someone who is by nature a very private person, out of respect for him I don't dish as much as I used to. The things I want to write about, and probably what you want to read about, I don't feel comfortable putting out there for just anyone to read. A potential future employer, a previously fired employee or my in-laws, for example.
So here is a compromise. I am going to password protect the blog and write whatever the heck I want. If there are any regular readers left out there, please don't be turned off by this. Understand that by doing this I will be able to provide more engaging content. At least, that is the plan. Starting January 1, I am securing the blog.
Just wait till I tell you about the tale of the 2 microwaves.
Happy New Year!
