Hello, Again

December 9, 2008

Let the kloncking recommence.

Here’s to writing and sharing online, in moderation.

And, for posterity, here’s an email I sent to a few friends, giving an idea of why I wanted to start this up.  Yay!

dear wonderful, beautiful friends around the world, and especially those who knew me as a blogger in a former life,

hello!  how are you?  hope you’re doing great.  i’ve probably seen or talked to you recently but if i haven’t, that’s most likely my bad and i will try to fix it!  : )

this is just a note to let you know that i’ve started blogging again.  (very, very gently blogging again.)  and to invite you to come to the blog.  and share on the blog.  and holla at the blog.

as most of y’all know, after writing my senior thesis on feminist blogging, becoming burnt-out and disillusioned in the process, i have spent many months fleeing in the opposite direction of online activity.  i am using my hands — cooking food, assembling art, fixing appliances, writing letters.  i am using my body — dancing, meditating, biking, making face time, doing yoga, getting it on every once in a while.  i work at a bookstore.  thus, i now read real books and the occasional printed newspaper.  since the summer, i have been thinking and learning a lot about community.  soon, i will be going to spain, where i will think and learn more about community.  i am making great strides at being happy wherever i’m at.  in short, life is glorious.

so now that the backlash has subsided, i finally feel ready to re-incorporate blogging as a tool in a collective investigation into things that matter.  (not all political — in fact, most not explicitly political at all, at least for the time being.)  it won’t be a moneymaker, but it might be fun.  and it’ll be especially groovy if you comment, and let me know if you have a website so i can link to it!

y’all are great.  take care, be well, and hopefully i’ll see you soon!

big hugs,

katie
