A New Home

Remember when the New York Times linked to my blog and then I stopped writing entirely? It would be reasonable to assume that was a reaction to a sudden uptick in attention (Hello family and friends who had no clue I’ve been blogging for 7 years!). It would also be reasonable to assume it was a wasted opportunity to meet a lot of new people. That second part is true. I don’t think the first part is, but I have to admit that I don’t really have enough distance to be sure. The truth is that I hit a logjam that I just couldn’t break. 2010 was hard. My Uncle Frank died. My 21-year-old cat Zoe died. My good friend’s son died. And then my Dad died. And I finally just ran out of ways to be anything but sad in this space. I’m still sad, but I also think I’m at risk of never coming back if I don’t come back now.

I’m also moving over to WordPress. Livejournal has been great to me, but it’s too closed an environment. Since I let the cat out of the bag I feel like I need to do this in a place where it’s easier for non-LJ users to comment. If anyone is reading (possibly not) then I hope this can be a chat rather than a monologue.

I’m writing from the Altitude Design Summit. These bright and funny people are unknowingly giving me the kick in the pants I need.

(I’m trying to get my blog imported with, obviously, limited success so far.)
