Why is this blog updated so sporadically?

I maintained In My Head on a nearly daily basis for four and a half years because of a writerly need to write, but also in the hope that it would serve to increase my visibility as a freelance writer and mini-pundit. It did that, but only to a very limited degree; in late November 2013 I realized that the effort involved in producing and promoting work to very limited effect was no longer giving me joy, so I decided to stop. I’m deeply grateful to the folks who have enjoyed and shared and commented on the blog, and feel oddly that this decision of mine is a bit on the rude side, but I hope they will understand. I❤ you guys!

HOWEVER – I can see that every now and then, I’ll want to make use of this space for a quick comment or to round up information or to share something really cool. And that is why this blog will be updated so sporadically: A shocking lack of either rhyme or reason.

If you really want to know when “sporadically” rolls around, you can subscribe – the button’s down there on the right, when you scroll down. I can’t promise it’ll be worth your while, but then, I can only try my best. : )
