Life changes and blogging changes. I'm starting a new blog:
Here is the blog's introduction.
At the new blog, I'll still make my attempts to discuss literature and ideas. But I don't want to compartmentalize my various interests into three different blogs anymore. The posts on literature and ideas will be mixed in with sports posts (cross-posted at Pacifist Viking), comments on advertisements, bad television, consumerism, parenthood, Twin Cities life, and other various topics that amuse me (and I hope not me alone). A lot of the posts will be short and inane (sort of like this one), and there may be a lot more brief links.
I'm still not quite sure what I'll be doing with this site; I've flirted with a few different ideas. I'll keep it up on the possibility I return to it (and I'll still use it to check the links I've got on the side). But I like fresh starts, and this new venture energizes me.
It's been fun, and it will stay fun at a new URL combined with a bunch of other funky stuff.
