I’ve just been reminded by WordPress that this is the sixth anniversary of me starting this blog. I’m somewhat amazed that I’ve kept it going that long. I am, however, finding it more and more difficult to find things to write about, which is partly why it’s been a lot less active recently than it has been in the past.
I have, however, learned an awful lot while writing this blog. I’ve read about, and thought about, topics that I probably wouldn’t have considered otherwise. I’ve had interesting discussions with many people, and still enjoy these discussions. I’ve also learned a lot from other people. I’ve, on occasion, had less than pleasant discussions, but these seem to be less commmon than they once were. This might be partly because the topic is slightly less contentious, but is probably also because people with different views are talking less to each other, which is a little disappointing even if it does make life more pleasant.
I want to thank those who’ve been supportive and those who contribute to the still quite active comment threads. I also want to thank those who’ve contributed guest posts, and those who’ve allowed their discussions with Willard to be posted here. I don’t know how active the blog will be in the coming year. As usual, I plan to simply play things by ear and to write what I feel like writing about, which can vary somewhat from time to time.
