I used to tell you everything
The sixth anniversary of my blog approaches. It took me some time to negotiate the ways of the burgeoning blogosphere, learning how to say what I needed without being too revealing. Over time, that became less tenable, as everyone converged on the web and it transitioned from an anonymous domain to a public square. My career changed too, and while policy and politics drove me to blogging in the first place, I started working at jobs where my politics could be a liability if directly associated with the work I do. I found that not discussing my personal life nor my politics leaves me with little to write about aside from various exploits about town, thus rendering my blog an electronic version of my eighth-grade diary.
