I am still here... (Random thoughts)

Back in April I started blogging again after a four month "hiatus". That lasted just over a month before I disappeared again.

No, Katinka, I didn't disappear into Facebook, although I do have a account. You can blog inside Facebook with notes, but I don't have any interest in doing that. Facebook's a walled garden and I want my blog to be public. I use facebook mostly for the messaging. Being able to use Facebook messaging with my phone's text messaging is the next best thing to getting e-mail on my phone. (And texting is relatively inexpensive, while e-mail is ridiculously pricey in Canada).

But for those of you on Facebook, I have added the BlogFriends application. Supposedly that should bring these posts into Facebook. If you got here from there, would you mind leaving a comment to let me know? (And does it work if you don't have the application installed?)

So why post now? I've been meaning to get back to it for about a month now, and Aaron finally shamed me into it. Aaron, you said you'd never blog and now you've got one of your own. I am surprised. (And for the record, you shouldn't edit your writing retroactively). (Not that you have). :P

I've got to go. I've got a West Coast Swing workshop tonight. (Dancing seems to be taking up a lot of my time recently). But I'm posting this now to end the hiatus...
