August 10? Really? Shit. That was a while back.

So what’s it like to come to the conclusion, even if it’s potentially inaccurate, that you don’t have a hell of a lot to say on your blog? Weirdly enough, it’s kind of easy to brush off, especially when there’s a pennant race and a social life and Netflix and working the day job and, per usual, all kinds of freelance writing to distract you. (Well, maybe not “all kinds”; since the unfortunate demise of Paper Thin Walls it’s basically All Pitchfork All the Time.) The less enthused I am about the idea of being some kind of Internet Personality, the less interested I am in the whole blog-as-public-blather-venue deal, and the more I value the circle of friends I already have and, fortunately, continue to expand via more traditional face-time venues.

However: I think that, even if this is more or less just an occasional outlet for notions that don’t fit on a messageboard or a Facebook status update, I’m going to find some way to maintain this thing and make it worth visiting for some reason or another. Announcing any kind of real actual feasible content-wise gameplan seems like it’ll inevitably result in a false start, so it’s good that I don’t actually have any real big idea notion for it yet. And maybe I don’t need one. We’ll see where this goes.
