I learned my lesson.
I had been blogging at Propernoun.net since 2005 or so, and I loved it. I’m not sure I ever had too many readers, but I really enjoyed it nonetheless. Until this past year. Life got really busy, and the blog began to feel like a chore rather than a fun hobby it had been for so long. So when a technical glitch gave me the excuse I needed to put it on the back burner, I must admit I was relieved.
I kept telling myself I would fix it. For months I would plan to sit down and reinstall, so I could get back to blogging. Only when I finally got around to it (nearly nine months later?), it was gone. Years of blogging gone.
I could be mad about it, but I’ve decided to focus on the future. I’m making things simpler, and focusing on what I used to love the most: just writing. I’m also hoping to change things up a little bit. The blogs I like to read the most are the ones that put things in context. They bring the subject alive. I don’t want to just post book reviews. I want to get to the next level.
So, here goes! Proper Noun Blog starting over!
