You see, this weblog really lost its reason to exist when Hit & Run started, and it's evolved into an uncomfortable assortment of: personal stuff of interest only to my friends and family; odds and ends that I had to cut out of longer pieces (or which failed to congeal into a longer piece); random anecdotes; nearly-random one-liners; placefilling quotes from other people; movie reviews; and the occasional fully-formed essay that I stick here instead of elsewhere simply because I feel the blog needs something hearty to justify its existence. The main reasons I keep the site at all is (a) because I need someplace to stick those movie reviews, especially when the movie I'm reviewing isn't remotely new, and (b) as a way to keep linking to stuff I write elsewhere.
No, I'm not going to kill the site. But I'm going to urge any of you who read this blog in hopes that it will once more become a significant outlet for my writing (if such people exist) to check out Hit & Run instead. And I'm going to urge those of you who read this blog to keep up with what I've been doing lately -- such people do exist, and I could list them by name if I wanted to -- just to drop me a line once in a while. That method works too.
That said, I do actually have one or two long posts in the works. So you might want to keep dropping by here every now and then as well.
