Yesterday was the ninth anniversary of the first post in this blog. But I haven’t really talked about this blog’s anniversaries over the years, because it started out so differently. Looking at old posts, I would say that it took about nine months for this blog to develop into the form that most people would recognize now. April 2008 really was the time when this blog fully became what you see before you. So, maybe we should say that it’s exactly nine years since this blog’s conception, but it wasn’t until nine months later that the blog was really born.
I thought of talking a little more about the history of this blog and the concurrent development of my own interests related to this blog, but I became unbearably bored. I’ve already typed two “About” pages, and though they are about four and seven years old, respectively, I think that they generally still apply.
I thought about talking a little about what will happen here in the future and the (several) posts that I am at least planning to put up – ones that I am presently working on heavily as well as ones that are on the proverbial back burner. But then I started getting bogged down in the preview that I was giving, and I was actually starting to write too much stuff that belonged in the posts, themselves. So, I decided to scrap that idea as well.
Suffice to say that in the near future, I will be writing about dance, music, and films… But I will probably be writing more about books and notes for books about dance, music and films. I also plan to post a little about someone’s interesting and pertinent research notes for a recent novel. (I won’t write about the novel unless I finally find it – but I am still happy to write about the notes.)
So, even though I may seem to have slowed down in recent times (for various reasons), I do plan on giving this blog a pretty full tenth year – assuming that we can call it the tenth year…
