Is anybody there?

Does anybody care? I haven’t used this blog in years and wonder if it is worth keeping up any more. Some people say blogs are now passé.

What do you think? Should I blog again? Did you miss me at all?

World AIDS Day 2008: Across the Blogosphere

20th anniversary logo

As we have in years past, the blog community stops to mark World AIDS Day. If you have posted an entry on your site, send me a link via the comments field below and I’ll post it in this space, updating through out the day.

Sadly, over the last few years, we’ve seen a marked decline in bloggers posting WAD entries. Perhaps it was more fashionable years ago and less so now.

What to do, what to do, what to do…

I am acutely aware that my blogging has fallen way off lately. I could blame it on my Facebook addiction, but that would be only partly true.

Truth is, there are so many things happening nowadays and so little available time in my day to write a cogent thought that it would be pointless for me to try to comment on “the news.” You can get it all elsewhere anyway.

So I’m going to try to refocus this space on less time sensitive writing, probably around arts and entertainment news and reviews and other goings on around New York…provided I have time to actually go out and see things. Stay tuned. 

Brand new blogger for your ear

A writer friend of mine has found a new place to display his talents. He’s joined the blogosphere and I want you to make him feel welcomed.

Adarro Minton is a short fiction writer of great joy and humor but also of great angst. His blog–Out. Loud. Live!–will contain previews from his upcoming collection,  Son of Buddy and Pauline, as well a selections from his first book of short stories, Gay, Black, Crippled, Fat!

Ok…maybe I’ll come back

I honestly didn’t know if I’d ever blog again. I think I had either run out of things to say or simply lost interest in saying them here. I’m still not convinced a blog is the best way to communicate and I’m far more interested in cultivating meaningful offline interactions these days, but feelings change, stuff happens and well, here I am.

I can’t promise you I’ll write often or extensively. I have no great plans to comment on everything that happens in the world, too much happens and I just don’t have the time. I’ll probably concentrate on the things I enjoy the most, and if you’ve been a reader in the past, you probably know what those are.

I thought about redesigning the site before coming back but that’s easier said than done. I have zero technical skills and finding people who’ll do it isn’t as easy as you think. It’s less about money, more about time. So we’ll stick with this one until I’m either compelled to change it or just decide to shut the sucker down once and for all.

While I was away: my 4 year blogaversary passed. It was September 1. I now work for the world’s largest civil rights law firm. No, I’m not an attorney but I’m surrounded by them every day, which can be both good and bad. In August, we had a family reunion, which was fabulous. Everyone should have one. As a result of that, I’m now engaged in a project to record and preserve my immediate family history, by interviewing my mother. I’m learning things I never knew before.In the days and weeks to come, I’ve got tickets to see a number of theatrical events here in NYC, and you may just see a review or two or three. Stay tuned.
