Keeping it going

I never write. I'm the worst blogger there ever was.

I've been considering transitioning to tumblr because people have done some sa-weet things with tumblr. The trouble is, one must write/post in order to have a successful blog. Blogger could be sa-weet like tumblr but only if I actually use it. In my mind, I should only post if I have something BIG or important or profound to talk about, but maybe that isn't the goal at all?

Originally, Intimate Association started as a part of a class project (and because I'd wanted to start a blog for a long time) and that class was focused on social justice. In turn, this blog seemed like it needed to focus on social justice. At the time, it did. Realistically, even if I wanted to write about something besides social justice or feminism, those topics would inadvertently become a part of the entry simply because those topics are an important piece of my world view. Anyway, I've avoided writing/posting because I haven't been feeling as much of a connection with those topics post-graduation.

Maybe I need to expand my blogging horizons and start writing about other things? I could write for years about my job, or about cohabitation, or about how much I like to clean, or probably what I did over the weekend--have you ever been to a country concert?! I now understand why I haven't done that before. If anybody, anybody at all, is reading this, it'd be great to have a few thoughts about what you're reading/writing so that I might be able to try something new.

And, if you're still checking on my blog...thanks. It's been relatively lifeless and cobweb-y around here lately.


  1. I am in fact one of the worst bloggers ever. you pass for a sub-par but not worst ever. no worries. i plan to update mine with plenty of stuff too, but i need to find the time. my non existent readers need me.

  2. i am still reading....and i don't think you have to blog all the time....just when something moves you. :) you have more courage than me - i want to start one, but haven't done it yet, so keep it up! i wonder if you could write about your thoughts about post-graduation intellectual life. it seems like it's a consistent struggle for folks - getting out of college and missing a group to read and discuss common interests with???? maybe ???? ps like the new background. :)

  3. Maybe we could try and inspire each other to write.
