I’m glad to be back. Thanks for the kind notes of encouragement as I took a little time off to enjoy Advent and, during some of that time, to reflect on blogging.
I come back to this space with no big insights, just a determination to keep trying to provide good quality reading for you and a place for opinions and facts to be shared courteously, vigorously, and passionately.
I hope more of you will consider participating in the comments, even if only to encourage other writers in what they say: encouragement is not in oversupply on most blogs. I hope you’ll energetically refer friends to this blog. And I hope more of you will enjoy what you read here enough to move on to my books—to which I have devoted considerable effort and whose publishers would be gratified by better sales!
All right, then: Back to it. Happy New Year, everyone.
