Jon and I are going to Iowa tomorrow, as part of his Saving Simon Book Tour. I’m leaving my computer home, so I won’t be blogging again till next Thursday. But, if you’re interested, I have this new page on my blog. It’s called History and if you click on it you can see a relatively quick history of my work and life as I wrote about it on my blog.
When Chris at Mannix, the company who designed and hosts my website, suggested this new page I liked the idea. But I didn’t like the thought of going through all my past blog posts. I don’t like looking back. So I decided to think of it as if I were curating an exhibit. I’d start at the beginning, got through all my posts up to the ever-changing present, pick some out, then edit it down.
Good idea, but it’s taking longer than I thought it would, and if I waited till I was caught up to tell anyone about it, well, I might never end up mentioning it at all. So, incomplete as it is, (only through December 2011) I’d like to let you know about this new page on my blog. You can get to it by clicking on the word History on the blue banner between Events and Bedlam Farm, just below and to the right of the cat on the books.
Now I didn’t read every blog post ( I mostly looked at the pictures as I tend to do if there are pictures) but I was curious to see how I wrote about Jon and me getting married. And I have to say, I was surprised. It was short, really short and it didn’t even have a picture of us or anything to do with getting married. It was just the facts really, and not many of them. It’s like I’m holding up my hand and saying ” I don’t want to talk about this, but I feel obligated mention it.” I can’t imagine doing that now. Now I actually love writing about my work and my life.
So I guess what I’m saying is that, going back, no matter how much I don’t like to do it, made be see how much I’ve changed. And that’s good, because I like the changes I did see.
Anyway, I will get this up to date soon, especially now that I’ve put it out there. And if you’re interested, check it out and let me know what you think.
