I know, I know, I know. I've neglected my homestead here and the place has gone to seed. The last thing I need is to be distracted by some shiny new hangout in another part of town. But they have pinball there! And a billiards table!
Anyway, I'm now on Google+ thanks to an invite from a friend who is infinitely cooler than I ever could be. However, I can strive to emulate him at least in some small way. So if you're there yourself, please feel free to look me up and circle me, or whatever the operative verb would be. And if you're not already on Google+ but would like to be, I surely have an invite or two to spare. Just let me know.
Things just haven't been propitious for any kind of longish writing lately, and the really brief posts I've done recently never felt to me like an appropriate use of the blogging form. I'm thinking that Google+ might be the best place for the one or two sentence updates and photos and YouTube videos, the lightweight stuff I haven't been sharing anyplace online mainly because I'm not on Twitter nor Facebook. I've avoided Twitter only because I fear the temptation of being sucked into it; I've avoided Facebook only because it is pure evil.* Maybe this can act as a substitute for both.
Let me emphasize that I'm not giving up blogging here. I love blogging here. Longer posts will appear whenever I feel like it. Could be next week. Or next month. Who says this isn't the astounding Estoreal Age of Delayed Gratification? Until then, face front, true believer!
* Yes yes yes, I know. Google may also be pure evil…but as far as I can tell, regular folks have more options to protect themselves against Google than they do with Facebook.
