An update

I know I haven't been blogging much lately.

I wanted to get away from the model of commenting on a news article everyday. It got to the point that I felt I had to "feed the blog" every day, and that unconsciously I was asking myself "so what do I want to be mad at today?"

I don't have the time to do that kind of blogging any more. I have four kids. They are still on summer break, and there's a kitchen reno going on in my house. I have other things going on in my life.

But I still have things to say about pro-life issues, and I still want to express them in a format that's longer than a tweet or facebook status.

I noticed that when I used to write these personal entries, my blog stats would go down, so I didn't write them a lot.

But now that my blog stats are almost completely zero, I suppose that point is moot. I will be posting material for the handful of people who really want to read what I think. This may not be the blog fodder of the days of yore. That's perfectly fine with me. I don't have the time or the energy these days to keep up with the blogosphere.

I had wanted to write more formal pieces that focused on pro-life themes in history. That still interests me, but it's tough to do when the kids are home. I hope to get back to it in the coming weeks.

For now, I will just share my thoughts as they come, regardless of the day's news.
