What up, 'sphere. Are we even still calling it that? No, right? I didn't think so. It's been however long it's been since I last posted. Two reasons, no wait, three reasons: 1) I had a baby and babies are HUGE time sucks. 2) Blogger ditched FTP publishing and I had no idea how to migrate and change whatever needed to be changed. Fortunately, Josh Orum of the fabulous Loud Dog still helps my digitally stupid arse when I need it. Thanks, Josh! 3) My day job doesn't allow me to comment on the upcoming statewide election nor really any of the juicy state goings-on right now. Which sucks but how else will I pay my $4/month hosting bill? Exactly.
So where do we go from here, then? I know, let's check out a visual representation of what life is about, blog-wise. Or what blogging still goes down nowadays anyway.
Crap, really? Pregnancy is the biggest word? Out of 5 years of blogging? Some of it substantive? Much of it engaging. C'mon, it used to be, you thought so too or you wouldn't be reading this now, still. I demand a new algorithm! I didn't think I'd written that much about it, but it must have been frequently and recently part of the blog to get such big word-cloud billing.
But really, where do we - I - where do I go from here? There are some great, compelling . . . mommyblogs out there. Is there any room left in that market? Is there any point in asking that question when I haven't written much at all lately despite desperately, desperately needing to write?
Media criticism? TV reviews? Weight-loss? (har har, like I have time for that yet.) What's relevant without stinking of a thirst for relevance?
