The spouse of a friend of mine is blogging their family’s short-term ex-pat life in London (it’s a lovely new blog — check it out!), and in only her second post, she admits that she’s been doing a bit of “slow blogging.” No, really, it’s a thing, she says, because it has a manifesto. And we all know that if something has a manifesto, then it must be real! Well, I guess then that slow blogging is what I’ve been doing lately, and I’ve been so slow about it that even when I get linked by IHE (bless their hearts for keeping me in their RSS feed), as I did with the last post, no one’s really paying attention. So, I think that’s a sign that I must either speed things up a bit or else close up shop. I hate to go out with a whimper, so I’ll at least try to do some solid posts before that happens (*if* that happens). So I hope you’ll hear from me a little bit more in the meantime.
