Gosh, blogging is hard! Well, it's not that hard, but it's hard to maintain. Once you take a day off from it, it's easy to go another day without writing. Then, a day turns into a week, a week turns into another week, and my blog sits empty. Was the last thought I wanted to write about really Tom Gugliotta and the Fun Police?
No. It ends here. It's over, lethargy. You lose.
First order of business (or soon after I post this): it's time to beef up the ol' sidebar! If you call yourself a friend of mine, and once blogged and no longer do, you're nothing but clutter to me. Farewell to Carson, Kelly, and Mary. Kate can stay, Chris can stay, Dani needs to step up her game a bit, but I'm confident she can pull it off. Big welcome to Josh, who gets the nod here despite his propensity for hotlinking.
In addition, we'll be posting a few more links on the right-hand side. Candidates include 3 Quarks Daily, Arts and Letters Daily, and maybe the Virginia Quarterly Review.
Look for a fresh new update tomorrow or the next day. I'm going to post an article that's going to blow your mind.
