The list of sites I follow in Feedly has long ago shifted from personal blogs to larger, specialized news websites. The personal blogs have disappeared for the same reason this one did. Why would anyone want to share personal information this way, when social media is easier to use, more specific, more widely-used, and has a much broader reach?

Social media sucked the life out of personal blogging, and now its turned around and is sucking the life out of us. I think this is why I’ve seen a few inactive blogs in my Personal blogs folder becoming active again. And that’s why I’ve dusted this one off. I have things to share, and I will have control over it’s done.

Here’s what’s happened in the last five years (almost to the day!?!) since I’ve posted.

First, this is a story all about how I met my partner Christine, and my life got flipped turned upside down. My focus shifted almost immediately. Five years and two kids later…

Obviously, my run for mayor took a backseat. Swimming has taken a backseat. I have had a couple of interesting shifts in my career. Running has been great, and I really enjoy my early morning group bike rides.

I’m not sure how much of a resurgence this blog will actually undergo, but this post feels pretty good.
