I’ve made many attempts to maintain some kind of web presence through longer-form writing. I go back and forth, leaving old posts up for a few years before I decide I hate all of it and delete the whole page and all the content with it. I think maybe it becomes daunting after a while to think of things worth devoting hours to writing about and, rather than throw something out there just to say I did it, I just stop writing all together.
That’s not where I want to be. I don’t ever want to stop writing, even if no one’s reading. I think I need to get over the idea of readership being a required outcome of writing. I can’t do it for you, dear and possibly lonely reader. I just have to do it.
God help me, with a family and a job and a life, but I’ll try.
