But family, work, grad school, life in general... everything's been busier and crazier than ever the past year or two, and I just haven't had the time, energy, or even the inclination to amp things up again (not that this was ever especially amped, but you get the idea). Plus, a lot of the other folks who came into the comics bloggyverse around the same time I did have long since wandered off to other locales, often using their blogs as stepping stones to other opportunities (and good for them, I say). The latter never really happened for me, but a.) I didn't really pursue that; and b.) my interests tend to lie elsewhere anyway. And, if I'm being honest, I probably overstayed my welcome by about 2 to 3 years, but what can I say, I like to hang on to a good time for as long as I can.
The internet will never completely be rid of me, of course. I'll still be lurking in the comments threads of the blogs I still follow, and I sporadically post on Tumblr:
- comics & pop culture stuff on Better Living Through Junk Culture
- library/archives-related material on From the Archives of a Library Padawan
- more-or-less daily Captain Marvel/Marvel Family images and posts on Shazam-A-Day
Thanks to those bloggers who have inspired and encouraged me (Joanna, Mikester, and Dorian especially, but there are many others too numerous to list here; chances are if you think you're one of them, you are), and most especially thanks to those of you who have read these little screeds of mine for any length of time through the years. It's always nice to know I haven't just been screaming (or typing) into the wind all this time.
As always, Mayberry says thanks and happy motoring.
