So I've been thinking that facebook and twitter, with their instant feedback and quick-shot ability to tell the world what you are thinking, are resulting in my thought processes being truncated, half-baked and aimed solely at the cheap laugh or the cutting insult.
Gone are the days of well-thought out posts about any number of issues, in long form, inviting comment and challenging readers to open their minds and weigh in.
But enough about Sharpedo and Shoveldog's posts, let's talk about mine.
I put so much of myself into this blog for so long, that I really want to get back into it. I want to keep writing, and I want to quit overwhelming my friends with my political posts on facebook.
So, if all goes as planned, I will begin again here at The Stinging Nettle, nearly 10 years after it originally started. It had become a diary of sorts. An uncomfortably public diary at times, but one in which I did much of my best writing. I haven't written a thing in two years on facebook of which I can say that.
So, let's see if we can get this started again, shall we?
