Let's Try This Again

Occasionally over the past few years, these emails would drop into my inbox.

One or two. Here and there. I'd delete them and move on. I hadn't blogged since December of 2009.

Then I started to get 5, 10, 20 per day. Then 40. Filling up my inbox. It was time to turn off comments. 

I couldn't even remember how to login.

After I'd taken care of the spammers, I started reading my old posts. Indulge myself in a bit of nostalgia. The posts weren't anything fantastic, but they weren't bad. And then I saw a mention of Facebook. I realized that the siren song of quick response, soundbite status posts and games had pulled me in. And pulled me away from more real writing.

Not that Facebook doesn't have its place. I've reconnected with friends I thought I'd never see again. Found support for MS across the world. And keep in touch with distant family with more than just the annual Christmas card.

But my writing skills have suffered. And I mean to change that.

I'll be posting to Rhapsody again. It doesn't matter if no one reads it. Just me, exercising my brain and my virtual pen. Oh... and those spammers? BLOCKED.
