For the past ten years, I’ve made several commitments to writing online. These sporadic periods of inspiration have resulted in a number of short-lived weblogs and journals on providers like LiveJournal, Blogspot, Tumblr, and WordPress, chronicling my whims and interests through periods of late-teenage angst, college-age superiority complexes, and most recently, semi-anonymous musings on politics and pop culture.
My most recent endeavor involved music reviews of records released in 2012 – music being a topic often on my mind and the search for exciting new releases a fairly significant hobby and source of pleasure in my daily life. Like previous efforts at prolonged content-production, this effort eventually waned and my site fell dark.
Despite these aborted attempts and scattered directions, I miss writing. I find it therapeutic, relaxing, and ultimately, a rewarding experience if only because it forces me to grapple ideas into a form with structure and inherent logic. I still have a wide array of passions and interests, so those that stumble upon this site can probably expect a scattering of posts related to film, books, international affairs and globalization, baseball, urban development, indie music, food and local news, reluctant wedding planning (itself a new development in my life), and snippets of interesting commentary or other things from various corners of the internet. I’m a pretty avid consumer of information and pop culture, and I enjoy highlighting the most engaging things I find.
So if you’ve happened upon this site and this post, I hope that you’ll come back again. Because I’ve resolved that I’ll still be writing.
