Oh dear, how very boring, look away now, I’m having an introspective moment, and this is a post about posting.
The problem is I’m torn between last year’s lofty ambition to begin a blog with a much stronger sense of coherent identity than I’ve managed in the past, and the fact that I am a hopelessly undisciplined blogger.
More charitably: blogging is supposed to be fun (isn’t it?) and I found that my self-imposed focus on one topic alone – even such a vast and varied one as US politics, and in an election year! – was starting to feel a little stifling.
And from an even more boring (boringly practical) point of view switching between two blogs all the time is still, however easy WordPress tries to make it, a pain in the bum for those of us who like things neat and tidy.
So: sod it, I’m still a Wannabe Yank, no doubt about it, but I’m going to post about whatever the hell I like. US politics and books, basically. And maybe a little music. YouTune, that was fun.
When 2011 is done, I shall be shifting my blogging energies in the direction of Wannabe Yank, a new site devoted to the satisfaction of my lifelong fascination with all things United, Stately and political. And 2012 seems rather fitting as apparently there’s a humdinger of an election on the cards…
