Blog Dot

This site is hibernating. It's not going anywhere, but I doubt I'll update it for a while.

The More Perfect Market blogging experiment continues, however.

At blog.moreperfectmarket.com.

I've been playing quietly over there for a little while now, and I'm approaching things a bit differently. I'm taking notes. Links, pics, vids, quotes, and quick commentary. Using the Tumblr blogging platform the way I think it was designed to be used.

The idea is to put less pressure on myself, rid my life of monsters like the dreaded Blog Archive Sidebar, which would stir my OCD neuroses into a frenzy whenever I'd notice I was on pace for less than 13 posts per month.

I need to keep things simple. I won't stop writing. I can't stop writing. But I probably should stop staying up way past my bedtime night after night because I can't quite explain why I'm not angry at Earl Butz.

So, in case you missed the link a few paragraphs ago, I present you A More Perfect Market, Version 2. If you've liked this blog, you might like that one too. I hope you'll at least have a look.

Thank you!

Too Much

Tough to admit. Took me a while. But my blogging pattern has changed. And I need to shelf this site for a while.

Lots of words on here. Lots of questions. Lots of thoughts.

Some I like a lot. Some I just simply needed to get out of my brain and into electronic storage. Some will probably never make sense to anyone but me.

I'm glad I collected them.

It'll be fun to check back in. Tomorrow, when I read something that reminds me of something I wrote. In five years, when I try to remember what it was I was reading when started wondering about something else. In 30 years, when my children get curious about what I was like when I was young. And in 60 years, when my grandchildren ask me what people were thinking about before humans got their collective shit together and started taking care of each other and their planet.

And I think that's the first time I've ever blogged about my children. It's important to note, of course, that they don't exist yet and probably won't for quite a few years.
