My New Year’s resolution is to spend less time online. For me to have any chance of succeeding, I have to give up a few things. This blog, unfortunately, is one of them.
I never intended this blog to continue forever, so I am fine with cutting it off before it becomes a chore. That said, I have enjoyed posting here over the past two years, and may consider returning through some other venue in the future.
I don’t presume that this blog has been useful, much less influential. I have no idea how many site visitors it received, since I never really cared. But I have appreciated the occasional e-mail from individuals who stumbled across a post they liked, and e-mailed me to let me know as much. If you are one of these people, thank you.
Posted below are links to some of my favorite posts from the past two years. For classification purposes, I have divided them into posts where I wasn’t trying to be helpful (mostly attempts at humor), and those where I was trying to be just a little bit helpful.
