I wonder as I sit here if it's time to reinvent this blog. I started it in December of 2007, about a month after signing up for a Blogger account, and I only did that so I could comment on another blog. At that time (or at least at that blog) the only way to do so was to sign up with Google Blogger, so I did, not thinking or even slightly considering writing a blog of my own. As the days passed, though, it began to seem more and more like the perfect way to say some of the things I wanted to say. I wasn't always sure I was capable of saying them, but I knew I would give it my best (some of the time, anyway). And so it began, and it's been up and down ever since. There is a lot I want to do here (or somewhere, hint, hint) and write about and share and tell you. I have some thoughts, feeble ones though they may be, on religion and politics and the usual nonsense that issues forth from the practitioners of both, and I'll write those pieces, humble ones, no doubt, but I'll also write much more in a personal vain, and do many fewer copy and paste posts that link to others material. Those I often do because I want to share what someone else has said better than I could, or sometimes just to fill some space, but always to give my few readers things I think are worthwhile.
Now, I know, for anyone who has spent any length of time here, that it's no surprise that I write the personal sort of thing, but I'll probably be writing even more of it. I'm also going to have regular features that actually are regular features, and that don't just start out that way with a few posts and then disappear. As an example, Sunday will feature Sunday Food, Proclamations and Reminders, and possibly Sunday Funday (I'll explain later) and maybe even Sunday School (I was once a brainwashed Christian, ya know, so I do know a little Buybull). Other days will have their own features, and there will still be the random posts on all other subjects too, and hopefully if you don't like one feature, you'll enjoy another. I'm also considering fiction, in the form of short stories, as a regular Saturday post. I am only sure of one thing, that like General Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia at Gettysburg, this will all end in disaster.
You may not notice anything too different about this blog at first, and it may seem as if nothing has changed, but I promise you, that unlike the switch from Bush to Obama, this time we're talking real change, baby! Yes, at this moment, at this place and time, change HAS come to Skeptical Eye.
And now I've got to get back to my bowl of butter pecan ice cream (it allows me to blog better, somehow) before it melts.
