In summer 2016, I relaunched the old Portly Politico blog, and put myself on a rigorous schedule, posting three times a week—Monday, Wednesday, and Friday—at 6:30 AM. It was, for me, a daunting task, but the more I wrote, the more lucid and easily the words flowed.
It was a great experience, but with the school year starting, I fell behind, and never really did much with the site. All that effort seemed wasted, even if I got a few good essays out of it. Even in the wake the historic 2016 election, I couldn’t muster the time or energy to write regularly.
But now it’s time for new beginnings. Henceforth, I’ll be posting new content here on WordPress, and I’ll use the old Blogger site as an archive. All the great content you read in 2016 will still be available there, and all my sweet new content will appear here.
As such, I’d encourage you to take a moment to subscribe afresh to receive each post as I write them.
Thanks, and welcome to the new Portly Politico.
