When I started this site, I intended for it to be a place for me to post short stories, essays, maybe the occasional poem, somewhere in the mix, I started blogging (which I consider really to be a less formal type of essay). The real problem is, that I wanted it to be a non-political place. When I wrote my first political post, What to remember after this election, my intention was to write something commenting on politics itself, and not to throw this site into those politics. As each political related post went up, I started to become more and more political, and slip further and further in.
That wasn’t my intention, and so I’m going to be making a renewed effort to steer this site away from the political. I don’t know that I can ever fully stay apolitical, but I will at least try not to use this platform as a soapbox to rant from.
In the coming days and weeks, it is my intention to write something much more lighthearted and fun on her, not to make it escapist necessarily, but to avoid topics like the one’s where I’m not contributing any new thought, and I’m just reiterating points like “Nazi’s are bad” and things that are absurdly obvious.
Thank you all for continuing to read, and I hope that I’ll be able to bring it back to a place of thoughtful entertainment, and not just me yelling into a keyboard.
