I never envisioned the posts being focused on me and my goings-on each week. I wanted the blog to provide the perspective of someone recovering from violence on current events in the media or in policy and law.
The thing about my ideal blog is that it takes (me?) a lot of time to do responsibly. I don't want to put out a post without having done adequate research. Writing about my own life has been, in a sense, easier and faster. To give myself enough time for the treatment I believe the new topics will deserve, the blog will be updated on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month.
This Decision Plagued Me
I had a lot of ideas about needing to be able to put out posts at a certain rate or keeping up with commercial blogs in other ways. I thought altering the blog would be a sort of failure. Then I realized changing the blog is actually a totally reasonable response to the fact that I was already wrong. I thought I could produce the kind of blog I wanted on a weekly basis. I can’t. That’s OK. Thanks to the support of my incredible friends, I’m feeling good about the choice to realign the blog with what I really want.
