I’m going to be honest with you. This is not my first blog. It isn’t even my third one. I’m not a blogging virgin. Can you accept that I might be a little experienced? I feel like we’ve known one another long enough that I can admit to that. I’m not so experienced that I’m jaded or anything, I still stumble. I still need support and positive feedback. But I’ve been around the blog-block enough times to feel comfortable experimenting a little bit here and there, getting a little creative with it.
Aside from snickering allusions to my level of experience, I will tell you that I am making a commitment to this blog, that I’m here to stay, baby. To prove it, I’m schlepping all of my baggage with me – blog posts that predate my blogs from 2005. Stuff I originally wrote in emails. Pardon the dust as I reformat the oldies (the import process was successful, but not perfect). That’s why this place suddenly got so crowded – and how my blog posts leapt from a modest 42 to almost 200 over the course of last weekend.
I’m also combining some of my social media accounts – like those gluten-free people who followed my old account are now hanging out on the A_K_Anderson twitter feed. I’m doing this for two reasons. First, it’s a heck of a lot easier to maintain fewer blogs and twitter feeds. Second, I’m doing it for the sake of authenticity. I figure you deserve to see all of me – the workouts, the gluten-free food and the science fiction geekiness.
Doesn’t it feel like we’ve taken another step deeper in our relationship now? I’m going to be honest, it makes me nervous.
