Q: What do you call a blog that has more “OK, I need to start over” posts than any other kind?
A: This one.
Yeah, I’ve killed all that other crap and I’m starting over yet again.
I still don’t know what I’m going to do with this blog, but I will give it another shot. I’m not ready to quit yet.
To date, I’ve mostly used it as a private blog to try to sort out my thoughts about some major shit going on in my life. It was a staging area of sorts for discussions about what’s going on inside my head. Each time I started over, I took a different approach. The longest lasted about four or five posts, while many never got past the “OK, I’m starting again” stage.
During one iteration, I used it to make a public post to commemorate my first son, who was born too prematurely to survive, and whose death still haunts me to this day. I’m sure that I’ll tell that story here again.
But this time I’m going to try to use it to post just random stuff and see what sticks. I guess this is kind of the “Groundhog Day” of blogs. I’ll keep trying again and again until I get something that works.
I’ll accept all suggestions for possible posts and directions for the blog. Meanwhile, I’ll see what I can come up with on my own. Stick with me, because I’m not giving up.
