I know my consistency with posting on this blog has been feeble at best the last few months. I wish I could say I was just insanely busy, but I have also been struggling with the content of the blog. I have found myself more and more inclined lately to post about current events and issues that affect us all, but that I fear don't get nearly enough airtime or are slowly slipping into the darkness when they should be making a headline every day. However, this did not begin as a political blog or a news blog, it's character is defined by my character and my stories and interests, and I also want that to stay. You guys, I think, have been amazingly patient with me; reading and commenting thoughtfully on all types of posts, even when I've been awful about reciprocating. I think I'm going to try a little harder to strike that balance.
