The problem with posting infrequently is that it creates pressure to write something Momentous/Significant/Requiring Deliberation and Wordcraft. You know, things that should be capitalized. A birth story to make ya cry and laugh, deep thoughts about second-time parenthood, etc., a five-act treatise on natural childbirth in an American hospital setting, and yadda yadda.
Between the new parent fuzziness and the aftereffects of the pace I upheld at work throughout my pregnancy and, oh yeah, the dissertation defense at the start of the pregnancy, my synapses are not yet recovered enough to fire at anything approaching that level.
So. Imma gonna try burning off the burnout and dust by reprising an old exercise: NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). I’m going to make no promises about sticking with chronology, or minimum word count or anything like that. But. I am going to aim for 30 posts in 30 days.
Here we go.
