Once upon a time, back when our emails were still at yahoo, there was a blog called Surgical Strikes. The term refers to a super-precise military operation, but I used it to describe my laser-focused stops for olive oil, milk. And that was the blog mantra: get in, get out, quick surgical strikes. Not sure about mantras for this current effort, but the name feels like a comfy blanket. So viva la 2.0, let's party like it's 2005.
I don't think people read blogs any more, but I have more to say than fits on Facebook, Twitter gets lost instantly into the ether, Tumblr is for kids. I want a place where I can write whatever I feel like, just 'cause. I know that's out of style, but I don't care. Blogging is fun. If that makes me a throwback, well, I've been called worse.
