First, I made the acquaintance of MySpace. It was so much fun trading comments and funny pictures and wasn't customizing your profile page absolutely addicting?! There were so many options. It was like nothing I'd done before. Instant hook.
Then came a kind of dark, painful period in my life. I moved away from God, got cynical, and spent a lot of time wallowing in my pain and disappointment. My writing during this time came from a dark place and while the blog drew a good many readers I couldn't handle it. That's when I turned to memes and for a while that's nearly all I did. Day after day...and they weren't exactly edifying ones, either. They were rather cynical and sarcastic and my answers followed suit.

I'm not going to get into it here, but suffice it to say, I got called on it and I pulled the plug on that blog. Something I should have done long before that.
Facebook entered my life during the life of that blog, too. Oh my. If there is a bigger time-sucking vortex out there I have no idea where it is...oh wait....Pinterest just might fill those shoes.

Anyway, my promise to you, my faithful readers (all 2 of you) is that I'm going to do my best to put fingers to keyboard and tap something out every day. Sundays being the exception.
