I'm BAAAAAAACKK! (Aerosmith anyone?). Don't worry, my wife had never heard of the song either, and when I started singing it, she just shook her head as if to say that I was irrefutably a lost cause.
At any rate, I have decided to resurrect my blog. I had never intended to go 5 months without posting. It just ... well .... happened. I wanted to redesign my blog, but then I got frustrated by the new Blogger template (with all of its "new" functionality, why do I feel like I can do less with the new template then I could with the old one?). Then I got frustrated with my miserable lack of web design skills. Then I got frustrated because I didn't know anyone who could actually sit down and help me with it. Then I just gave up.
That is, until last week, when, in the course of starting up her own blog, my wife happened to mention, "Ya know honey, you should post on your blog more. You haven't posted in 5 months." I was shocked that it had been that long and was compelled, with new vigor, to give it another go. I took another look at the new Blogger template, figured out a few ways to hack it into submission, and am now more or less happy with the outcome. Please let me know what you think of the new design.
Also, for the last few days I have been back-dating a bunch of stuff that I wrote in the course of those 5 lost months so that it doesn't look like I actually disappeared, and so that any new visitors who happen upon my blog will be able to say, "Look! This guy posts on a regular basis!" So, scroll down and watch as my blog travels through time and the large gaps between posts are magically filled in.
Thanks for reading!
