It pains me, it really does, to go back on my word. Even (especially?) a word spoken in the heat of pious repentance. But the search for a more suitable venue goes slowly. And man does not live by bread alone, but by every word hammered drunkenly out onto the interwabs at 2 o’clock in the morning.
So, here I am again. In lieu of a new and improved blog free from the entangling snares of pseudoprivacy, I offer this promise to myself, with you my remaining readers as witnesses (both of you): every post from here on out on this journal will be public, without exception. In the unlikely event a post turns out to be unsuitable for a public audience, it will be amended or withdrawn entirely.
Also, I offer these somewhat less rigid intentions: no political blogging unless it involves extended original thought of my own (i.e. no off-the-cuff ranting on current events). No whining unless balanced by an even greater quantity of blessing. And ongoing coverage of my quest to build a real home on the web, so I don’t get too comfortable. Feel free to call me on any of these if I start falling into old habits.
Welcome back, friends. I’ve missed our conversations.
