Sometimes I get so caught up in the political realm that I forget the whole reason why I created my blogs in the first place. My writer's blog, Defender of the Blahs, just reminded me why I write, and why I started each and every one of my blogs and sites.
Because I love to write.
Defender of the Blahs is my first and original blog. It was created in March of 2006, and has become my forgotten site. Not just by readers (Aside from my main site at www.douglasvgibbs.com, it gets the least amount of hits of my dozen or so sites), but by myself. What it is supposed to be a journal, a journal about me, a journal about my slow and lowly rise in the vicious world of publishing. Every once in a while I might throw in a snippet here and there, but the posts have become forced. And I've gotten to the point that I am searching for things to write about.
I suppose when the world is going to hell, and you have a site like Political Pistachio to spew about it, you forget about the simple pleasures in life. I plan to devote just a little more time to "Blahs" again. Make writing in it fun again.
Oh, don't you worry, liberals and terrorists and the alien invasion from south of the border still ticks me off, and I will continue to spew commentary about each of these subjects, but do me a favor; visit Defender of the Blahs every once in a while, just to see how I'm doing, because that is where I write what's really going on with me.
