Freedom from Blog: One Year and Counting

I started Freedom from Blog exactly one year ago today. Here's my first post, a rumination on the readings for my American Political Thought class. To be honest, thinking of a first post was really the major obstacle to starting the blog . . . that and thinking of a name for the blog. And, again, to be honest, I've never really been that happy with the name, but, well, you have to make do.

Blogging for a year has been an interesting experience. It's really become a way for me to keep in touch with a number of people that live, for the most part, pretty far away. I've blogged about politics, but also about books, movies, and my own experiences--none of which, I realize, are really that interesting. Well, maybe interesting to people who know me, which is really the intended audience of the blog.

Anyway, one year and counting. Of course, Freedom from Blog is not just mine, anymore.

Happy anniversary! I remember when you started this blog. It doesn't seem like its been a whole year. I'm convinced that people who keep blogs are usually pet-owners because both pets require the same care to survive: loving, daily attention. OK, you can leave them to fend for themselves for a weekend, or turn them over to a friend to manage while you go on vacation, but it amounts to the same thing, right?

I have considered starting a blog myself, but I won't because of the same reason I don't have pets I'm afraid it would die from neglect.

Anyway, good going...looking forward to reading (but not writing) year number 2!

Congrats, Em! Having contributed posts for just a few weeks, I'm awed by how much it must have taken to do this over a full year and keep it consistently interesting.

Happy Anniversary! I enjoy reading it even when I don't follow all of the political stuff...

Someone comment on Harper v. Poway Unified School Dist. Volokh had a cool post on it, but I'd be interested to here what the folks over here have to say, even though I don't think any of you are first amendment scholars, it's a cool case anyway.

It's been great fun Emery. My only regret is that I flamed Curat Lex. If he's still lurking, I here offer an apology, which I hope he'll accept.

I second tmcd's thoughts about how much work it can be. As for me, it's end of semester crunch time and I need some Freedom from Blog(ing).
