I deleted my About page today and replaced it with this. For one thing, it hadn’t been updated, my About page, in, like, five years. For another, it probably should have been updated about 4 years, 360 days ago. In fact, I’m not sure that my last About page should have ever been my About page, but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
Anyhoo, if you’re confused by the comments below, that’s why. This is the third iteration of this here About page, if you’re counting (I know you’re not).
I can’t tell you what you can expect to find here because I don’t know yet myself. I can tell you that in the past, what you would have found here would be a nice mix of fiction, humor, and musings, as advertised. If you dig around in the archives (and I know you’re not going to, because almost no one does that here in blogland, they only glance quickly, click follow (maybe), and (maybe) read the next post when it comes) that’s what you will find. The fiction has been the most popular feature, and although that makes me happy, I never intended this place to be a showcase for just fiction. I intended it to be a forum for whatever was on my mind in a given week, which may or may not be best expressed through fiction, some weeks.
But that’s the past. In the past, I was very disciplined about posting once per week, usually on Monday’s. (That’s good advice for growing a blog, by the way — establish a routine and stick to it.) These days I post less frequently, but the posts are more raw, less polished. You get the real Walt (if not the real me, since my name is not really Walt), not the hyper-gloss, eighties pop-metal version. You get the grunge version. And now I’m dating myself, so I’ll stop. Thanks for reading. Gimme a shout.
